    Vi åt en Afternoon Tea och det var så mysigt. Det var så fint i restaurangen och vår servitör berättade historia om afternoon tea och allt var supermysigt.

    Excellent food here, especially the curries. Good portion sizes. Excellent value for money with a Taste card otherwise would be expensive.

    The menu was not the one that appeared on their website but other than that the food and presentation were very good.

    We went there for the New Year's Evening special menu and the food and service were very good indeed.

    This was a perfect choice for lunch after a trip to Westminster Abbey. Staff couldn't have been more welcome - and accommodating to one of our party, who is Coeliac.

    Best restaurant ever

    We had a wonderful meal here. I couldn't believe the value (£30 for three course set lunch menu). The restaurant had a lovely open ambience, and the staff were friendly and attentive. All courses were delicious - especially the Indian food, but the beef stew and the ravioli were delicious too. What a hidden gem! The only slight downside was that the toilets were a very long way away which was a problem for the less mobile guests in our party.

    A hidden gem. Wonderful food, service and atmosphere. With the Tastecard it is especially good value. So glad it is open again!
