First time at this smart, modern Indian restaurant, in a very interesting, elegant old hall, for lunch with an old business contact. We went for the short lunch menu (which I had to ask for, actually, having been offered the main à la carte menu)....More

Excellent food, excellent service. Had a lovely meal, I don’t like very spicy food, the waiter was very informative and what he recommended was spot on. Chocolate bomb was very yummy. Will definitely be back when we are visiting London again.

Family dinner before going out for NYE. Greeters took our coats and seated us, somewhat mechanical though friendly. Our server was okay. 2 of the items in the 3 fishes appetizer were excellent (esp the salmon) and everyone enjoyed their tiki masala. Tadoor chicken was...More

Excellent service and food - this is the top end of Indian Cuisine. A very popular destination for business people, couples and even families with children appreciating different culture. Highly recommend.

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

This is a high end Indian restaurant and priced accordingly. Yes it is expensive but it is not the same as the average high street Indian which you may find are more reasonably priced.
