Description: Khan’s has just entered it’s Thirty Eighth year in business, and is still one of Europe’s largest and most popular Indian restaurants. Khan’s was founded in 1977 by Mr. M Y Khan and is still to this day run by the same family in London. Keeping all the traditional, quality and standard of this amazing founder. To enter the new Millennium the Khan’s family decided to abolish the sale of alcohol, in accordance with healthy eating & healthy drinking, the adopted philosophy of wholesomeness, well-being and recreating the traditional ambiance – ‘The days of the Raj’. As a result, this has created a more family orientated restaurant for every one to enjoy. The selection of Organic & Halal drinks is vast which includes a selection of Khan’s fruit cocktails all created in-house. Renowned for it’s high standard and quality of food as all ingredients are bought fresh daily, 100% Halal. The menu is extensive with well over 70 main courses to choose from, all using authentic traditional recipes. A few house specialties include Fish Curry, Methi Gosht, Chicken Tikka, Butter Chicken, Bombay Aloo and Mutter Paneer. The menu caters for everyone from the Health-conscious to the Vegetarians. Khan’s has also created it’s own children’s menu, whereby, the dishes served are mild, healthy with plenty of flavour. The atmosphere at Khan’s is breath taking; the pace is fast and the service faultless, a unique atmosphere that must be experienced.

The food and atmosphere were both wonderful! Khan's was recommended to us by a friend, and we are very happy we made it part of our trip. The food was exceptional and came out quickly! We had leftovers, which were kindly and quickly packed up for us. Paying the check took longer than it should have, however.

My wife and I had our first meal here in the late 1970s when both of us were living here. Since then we have moved back to the South East Asia but remain as regular visitors to the UK, particularly London. This restaurant has become an institution and enjoys a loyal clientele.
Not much has changed over the years except the prices over time like all others. Perhaps it's timely to update the interior design and introduce new customer service training(generally lacking enthusiasm and relatively lethargic ).
We particularly like the lamb and kebab dishes. This is the place to fix your craving for classic Indian cuisine.

I must confess that I don't really like indian food, at least not the standard dishes, only when all the herbs are fresh and spices are ground from original roots and the cooking is innovative, like zaika or something like it used to be back in sw10 before it moved to kensington anyway. Still, this is nice according to friends who are aficionados of Indian British. On a recent visit I found the food rather heavy and oily personally. Used to go more often back in the 90s, they were licensed then, and we generally went after the pubs had shut, so I didn't really notice the food quality. .

Visited with friends, the decor was ok and the staff were friendly but very slow. Food was well presented and tasty. The toilets were quite a trek downstairs and it was cold down there. A nice experience and would recommend and visit again.

Called in because we were hungry and fancied a curry
Most uninviting reception we have ever had seemed like we were lepers
Food was thrown on the table starters and mains all in one go with not a word spoken only time we were spoken to was how are you paying
Paid by card or the 10% gratuity that is charged would not have been paid
Never go there again would recommend the pizza down the road first and we have never been there
