Excellent Indian food, great and friendly service. We were a group of 6, and they sat us in a nice alcove. It was a Monday night, so they weren't very busy. We started with a selection of interesting appetizers. All the main dishes were delicious. I had Chicken Tikka Buryani; it was served in a pretty pot-like dish; and it was delicious. Others had: Sea bass, a three-dish vegetarian selection, and other traditional Indian food. We all enjoyed it very much. Desserts were also quite good. Mine was 3 mango cookie sandwich-like pieces in a saffron flavored sauce. Mango 3 ways was very interesting also. I would highly recommend this great place!

I went out of my way to ask for gluten free and not too spicy.
The duck salad was too hot to taste as was the Auvergne veg dish. Chicken curry was too hot spicy.

Really good Indian, probably one of the best in Chelsea. Different menus and ingredients all in a familiar setting and choice of gravy, loved the seafood platter starter and the hot chicken was excellent.
Expect to pay £50 per head with water and beers, more if you hit the wine list.
