We were excited to come here but...
Not crazy about the dining room decor-and the staff is impersonal. Efficient granted, but you never feel welcome. It’s more of an assembly line feel to the service.
To start, the cocktails are good. The appetizers sounded interesting and came in the usual small portions but were a bit on “sitting in the kitchen a bit too long” side. Not what a top restaurant should do.
We were blessed with a screaming child in front and some drunk pounding the table (also screaming)behind us, which seemed to escalate as we waited for our mains.
There were a few decently dressed tables, but some looked like just just came out of bus station. Very tacky on all fronts so far. Also the table presentation of the food is very lackluster (see pic).
Back to the main food, which was again tasty, but my chicken was lukewarm to medium, not what I expect at this level of price.
The noisy room and impersonal service got to us and we asked for the check. Didn’t bother with dessert, as at this point we were fed up.
I think this place is frankly overrated. I would suggest other places,that maybe are less rated in culinary reviews but have stellar service. I like an elegant dining room and well set table, personable service and food that comes straight from the kitchen...such as the Cinnamon Club, if you’re looking for upscale Indian food.
There are many lovely, well staffed, delicious restaurants in London, and this is not one of them.
