Really nice selection of food. We had a lovely date night here and the service was great. They also do take away! Overall a great Indian restaurant located in tower Bridge.

It is a neutrally decorated place that could do with a makeover. The service was a little chaotic at times but the food and the drinks were good. Sometimes they have live piano music which is also nice.

After a good afternoon at the Gin Festival we needed some hearty grub to soak up the alcohol. We were very well looked after but then again our friends are regulars. Good poppadoms, tasty starters and then an excellent chicken jalfrezi. Great spices and good heat. This is not a unique Indian restaurant. It is a straight forward, down to... More

Poor food and service. Well below the norm for an Indian restaurant. I can't believe we ended up choosing this place - so disappointing. The popadams were standard but range and quality of chutnies was below average. Curries were quite watery. One of the guys serving us was a nice but the others were surly. Agree with another reviewer -... More

My wife and I used to live the area and this restaurant was one of our favourite, if nor the best Indian in London in our views. The location is great and the food used to be amazing, with a special mention to their chicken sagrana. We had not been for a while and decided to stop by for good... More

This is the place we go to when we want to treat ourselves to something a cut above the standard Indian, maybe dress up a little. Sometimes they have a live singer on the grand piano which fills the, otherwise, somewhat..vacant room. It makes you feel a bit like you're in the cordoned- off VIP section of a club -... More

We always have our curries here when in london! The restaurant is vast so sometimes looks empty. However the food it excellent. If you like it hot try the garlic chili chicken. Equally good if you want a takeaway

We ate recently in this restaurant and will not return. The staff are unpleasant and did not make us feel welcome. Showed us to our seats, threw down the menus onto the table and walked off. Thats the initial impression of the place ruined. We ordered drinks and our meal. The popadoms and dips were nice. When our mains arrived... More

An average Indian restaurant in my opinion, selling what I would describe as standard high street fare, nothing particularly bad but nothing that make it stand out from an already crowded segment.

Have been here many times and it's consistently good. Piano player is a nice touch and not overbearing. Food is great in my opinion and wines / beers are ok. Prices consistent for SE1. Recommended.
