    Great staff, good atmosphere, good food. Although I wanted to order the cheese chilli nan I was convinced not to. I wish I had still ordered it as the substitute chilli garlic nan was very dry and I did not enjoy it with my curry.

    Delicious authentic Indian food. Had chef;s platter and the squid for starters. Pau bhaji was the best I've had in London. Goan prawn curry and lamb cureey were both excellent. Saffron and cardomen creme brulee and bebinca were very god. Good Portuguese wine. Relaxed setting. Friendly staff (but could be more engaged and switched on). Needs a cocktail list. Brilliant to have a place like this South of the river. We need more of this.

    Good pre-theatre spot for Old Vic & Young Vic

    Nice music, drab food apart, from salads which were fresh. Slow kitchen took 45 mins for veg curry and rice and a salad. Expensive given the mediocre quality.

    This was a really great meal. The fusion of Portuguese and Indian flavours was simply excellent. The starters are great; we had the Garlic and Cheese Naan with Prawns Rissoles, Beetroot and Coconut en Crust and Beef Crocket a'la Bardez. For mains we had Goan's Prawns Curry and Fish Rechado. All these dishes were fantastic. It was a most excellent meal and the service was good and unobtrusive. Will definitely return again, soon. Top marks!
