Restaurant description

Concealed under the streets of London, The India Restaurant offers an exclusive twist on traditional Indian recipes. A trio of cosy dining rooms feature whitewashed vaulted ceilings, plush leather armchairs and the soft flicker of candlelight.

Serving self-professed ‘vintage Indian cuisine’, The India Restaurant menu offers a range of artfully-presented dishes. Sample delicate salmon tikka filled with succulent cubes of fresh fish, pot-roast lamb shank made using the chef’s hand-picked, hand-dried spices, or Bengal fish curry. Trusty tandoori favourites are also served, from juicy butter chicken, to fiery duck jalfrezi.

A sweeping bar at The India Restaurant in London serves chilled international beers and complementing wines, while desserts showcase timeless Indian favourites made to refined recipes.

A romantic underground hideaway, The India Restaurant on Cannon Street sits 2 minutes’ walk from Mansion House Tube Station.

    The variety is quite good with many options for all meat, fish or vegetarian preferences. The food arrived faster than I would have expected which is positive. The presentation was very nice and the taste equally good. The waiters were friendly and accommodating and offered advise where we needed it.

    No one from our group of 4 had been to The India before, despite all working locally. We went on a Friday after work (in late November) and had a thoroughly nice evening! We were politely greeted at the door, and taken down to the charming restaurant nestled in lovely underground arches. The staff were extremely pleasant and professional and we enjoyed a joke with one of the waiters regarding 'free Indian champagne' (I won't spoil the punchline in case he uses that one regularly) :p We booked online through Bookatable and were informed by the waiter that this meant we would receive a 25% discount that evening on any starters or mains that we selected from the main menu. The food was delicious (particularly enjoyed my very coconutty peshwari naan!) and the waiters all knew exactly what we'd ordered without having to ask who was having what upon bringing out the food. All in all, great staff, lovely surroundings, delicious food and excellent value for money. 100% we will all be back again. Well done to 'The India' :)
