I'd eaten here a while ago so knew it fitted the bill for being good food and close to Liverpool St Station. After a long walk we found it to be closed for refurbishment. If only some technology was available, such as the world wide...More

Had not been here for at least a decade, so we decided to visit to relive old times. Although we were not disappointed with the food, it did not offer anything special over and above the normal Indian restaurant fare. Service was also rather mediocre....More

Cold plates which we requested to be changed. Waiter seemed irritated at this request. Plates came back tepid. The explanation for the cold plates was the weather conditions! No hot plates to keep your food warm so you need to eat fast before the food...More

The service was good and the staff were friendly and helpful. The curries were very nice and the portion sizes very large although maybe a little too much oil for me to manage. A pleasant ambient atmosphere. A great overall dining experience.

Ate here after an absence of several years and was not disappointed. Good curry house food at competitive prices with excellent service. Very busy as it's just a stones throw from Liverpool St station and several good pubs. Perfect!

The food was OK, decent poppadoms and starter but the Madras Main Course was very greasy and a puddle of grease was left on the plate by the time I had finished. 5 stars for the starter but 1 for the Main Course. Reasonable price...More

We were round the corner and wanted some food. Met a client in the bar who suggested the Dil Chad. We all walked round and booked a table for 10 in about half an hour. The service was good, the food and service fine,

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.
