  • (((** 15 July 2016 by Chemie from London

    My reservation was not found when my guest arrived before me. That was quite annoying as I had a confirmation email.
    Staff were nice but food took a while to arrive.

    Wasn't impressed. Gave away our table even though we called them and advised them of our delay. Won't be returning.

    As always, both the food and service were excellent. This well managed restaurant always manages to generate a friendly and inviting atmosphere.

    Much more traditional food that any other Indian restaurant we have been before. Food was excellent and the menu much more interesting than most Indian restaurants. Service was also excellent. Very popular restaurant right in the heart of East London.
