Food there was mindblowingly great, the variety of spices and the combination of tastes was really very good. Our female server was very efficient and did an excellent job in recommending wine.

The staff were lovely,however the curry I ordered was not,the chicken in creamy tomato sauce with fenugreek. The sauce was like tomato soup with little flavor and the chicken tasted like the previous days tandoori chicken that had been re -heated and was quite dry.

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
