It is hard to describe how bad this place is. If you want decent Indian food at a decent price then head up to Drummond Street. If you don't fancy the trip to Euston just go anywhere close by. This place is a disgrace and a rip off.

I totally get why the reviews are how they are. I went with a friend. A lady went in ahead and got a good evening. We got a "can I help you?" As if we were intruding. What did they think we were doing there? A delivery? Plumbing? No because when 2 people enter a restaurant it's normally to eat.... More

Family meal here. Should've went with my gut feeling and ran in the opposite direction. Why do they still have places like this is central London? Inside badly needed updating. Tables set up with dips already on and not refrigerated?! And in broken pots!No salad given for poppadoms. Waiter VERY pushy. Don't know how many times we needed to say... More

Really bad customer service and attitude from the waiter staff. Food was very mediocre and the beer tasted like it had been watered down. The price however did not reflect the service or food and it was a total waste of my hard earned pounds. Not recommended .... in fact avoid and go somewhere else.

Loved the cold naans being sort of chopped up and put in dingy little metal pots. That was a particular highlight. A shimmering bastion of incompetence.

I really liked it here. The service was good and I had a most delicious Balti Chicken Dansak washed down with a couple of pints of lager. My friend and I both ate and drank well here for a total of £64 including 4 pints plus service. Given that we are in Covent Garden, I don't know what all of... More

Just ok, I would not like to return. Quick service but the food is just not good enough. There are many other restaurants to pick in this area.

First impression as my husband and I entered was a nice, quiet dining room. My husband ordered butter chicken which was just ok. No vegan options. Just vegetable sides which I ordered and were almost too salty to eat. So disappointed as we were expecting the wonderful Indian food that London is known for.

Had a craving for Indian food since London has some of the best. The food was quite tasty and served quickly. The service was awful. Imagine Basil Faulty on a bad day, but w/o the humor. A German dad with his young daughter left in anger because the waiter refused to serve the combination (*see below) they chose, so there... More

Called in her on my own as waiting to meet son and friend at Stanmore. Although prices possibly as expected for this area of London, didn't appreciate the 12.5% service charge. May not have minded paying that so much, if service had been of a smiling and friendly nature. Shame as good location, and the food was actually good. Hence... More
