    We had a late dinner on friday night,[...] very spicy though, if you don't like spicy food don't go there! Otherwise a very pleasant dinner.

    You pay for what you get and a [$] 2 course meal in central London was never going to be great. Starters fine but main meal tasted as though it came out of a tin!

    Visited on a Friday evening. Great friendly service. Food was a poor excuse for fine dining, soft drinks flat. Overall, I would never visit this place again. Hugely overpriced for what was served.

    Dined on the evening with my son. The menu was very different to other Indian restaurants. My husband would love it. My son thought it was fantastic. It was particlarily great that we wasn't charged for drinking water. We would definately go back.

    Good food, great way to end a day out in London.Resturant staff very friendly and attentive. Had to wait a bit between courses but this is because it is all cooked fresh.
