This is a small but very worthwhile restaurant in South Kensington. Food was great, service was quick and staff accommodating. I would definitely Coe here again!

I was staying at the Millenium Gloucester in business and just wanted a good value, Indian restaurant. Shikara fitted the bill perfectly. Within walking distance and good quality, reasonably priced, Indian Cuisine, in the heart of South Kensington. Definitely worth a visit.

I went to this establishment recently. I know my Indian food very well and I can assure you that this is definitely not indian food, or even Bangladeshi food. Firstly, I found it suspect that neither the outside of the restaurant nor the interior has...More

A small side street restaurant. Clean and well laid out. Pleasant staff to greet you and good service even though we were touted off the street. Extensive menu well explained. Order to service time was minimal. Given first drinks free when the bill came. Surprised....More

Food is of poor quality and utterly tasteless. Avoid and don't waste your money here. Bindi was bland, Dal tasted of ghee and nothing else, spinach was gross- no spices, aubergines was under seasoned. Chapati was soggy as they put it in a plastic bag....More

This was one of the few places still open at around 11.30 on a Saturday night. I wish I had read the reviews. The food was dreadful. Bland, tasteless. Never again.

Revolting food. So disappointed. Will never order from there again. They even charge for a little run of mango chutney on an order of more than £40.

Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's
upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops,
eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at
its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely
unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this
showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price
tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down
pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal
