This restaurant might be small but it delivers big-time. We were a group of 10 people for a business supper and kicked off with mixed starters of tandoori chicken, samosas, nan breads, paneer and relishes. All excellent. I had lamb rogan josh to follow and it was delicious. Spicy but not wildly hot, lots of sauce to coat the pilau... More

Visited for the first time today. The starters were great, full of flavour, well cooked and presented. The mains although they were well presented lacked flavour and seasoning which was disappointing after such a good start.

Just off Kensington High St, this eclectic little place has an intimate feel but was extremely quiet when we visiting (Sunday afternoon)...we actually had the place to ourselves. The food isn't cheap for Indian cuisine, but the cooking is a step above the average joint. Very good rogan josh, and crispy samosas. The black cod lacked a 'wow factor' however.

Situated in a very effluent area, in Kensington but it is not a fine dining restaurant. It has some nice dishes but very small portions. The restaurant needs to be refurbished and modernised. It is a small restaurant, in a quiet area.

A small restaurant in a very quite street near Notting Hill. Be aware that the address is correct BUT the tripadvisor map is all wrong: put the address in google map and you'll reach the place. The food is indian in origin but different: less spicy and more delicate than the usual, yet retaining all the taste. Good work, chef!... More
