From the moment of our arrival we were made to feel welcome and enjoyed the full but unobtrusive attention of the Maharaja of India staff. Our server, Shaista, met the challenge of assisting us in ordering with kindness, grace and enthusiasm. After ascertaining our tastes, he made recommendations that provided us with one of the most memorable and enjoyable evenings... More

The restaurant was convenient for our theatre visit but we should have checked TripAdvisor first, as the poor reviews are accurate. The food was absolutely terrible. We didn't mind the fact it was cramped, after all, this is the West End. A place to avoid.

We were seated at the door, were it was windy, cold and cramped. Undaunted, we ordered dal, an eggplant dish, naan, a chicken/lamb curry and a prawn curry. For the high prices, we received only trifling amounts of food. The quality was bad - all dishes were seasoned with the same spice mix and tasted practically the same, very bland.... More

The food at the restaurant is dam bad. Even if you are hungry and craving for Indian food, settle in for a burger but don't enter this restaurant . It serves bad food and you gotta wait for an hour to get your food . There is just 1 guy who manages this hotel. The quality of food is pathetic... More

Lovely food. Service awful. Miserable staff. I think this was possibly because they add service charges so they don't care . Will never return.

My curry was cold I sent it back received another which was nearly burnt. No taste to curry at all. Rice was bland chips poor and naan bread was... More

Popped in here because we were on the hunt for food and passed here, the food was nice and the service was ok. I would say expensive but when you account for London prices its probably reasonable. Not sure if i'd head back on another trip i think i'd rather try another place, simply for variety rather than a fault... More

Went with some colleagues for dinner. The restaurant itself is clean, modern and very centrally located. However that is about it about the positives. The waiter was prompt but seemed to urge us into ordering starters and several side dishes which we ended up accepting, but not because we were particularly hungry rather than avoiding uneasy discussion with the waiter....

Staying in Trafalgar Square / Embankment

Neighbourhood Profile
Trafalgar Square / Embankment
With its iconic Nelson’s Column, majestic oversized lions and brightly-lit fountains, Trafalgar Square is not just considered the heart of this bustling London hub, but the very core of the city itself. Beyond this esteemed gathering place are more famous icons, as well as a disproportionate numbers of the city’s most popular cultural attractions including the National Gallery and many West End theaters. Along the way to these major sites are quiet lanes and antiquated pubs to discover, as well as riverside vistas to enjoy on the embankment. With a calendar full of celebratory events, any time of year is a fine time to visit.
