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.

Customer reviews for The India Restaurant
((((( 7 December 2018 by Annabel from London
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' :)

The food was absolutely amazing! Loved the feel and atmosphere of the whole place... just some grumpy staff that dampened the evening. But overall a great place to eat!

Really nice food however lots of flies around the tables, one table complained several times and one couple left but staff didn’t do anything.

Nothing special, ok food but got two out of four meals completely wrong.

I took a party of eight curry regulars for lunch, it was our first visit and we were impressed by the quality of the food and the variety within it. Reasonably pitched in terms of price and quality with well-spiced food, not overwhelming, plenty of choice, good for both vegetarians and meat eaters. Chicken tikka starter was one of the best I have had, four good sized pieces of chicken with well flavoured spice and was followed up by a main of chicken jalfrezy that packed a real punch. Nice chana masala with it too.. Wide ranging menu, we shall be back to explore it further. Shame it has to fit into such a confined space.

Great service, very attentive. Starters were amazing and our visitors from the USA loved the food. Nice atmosphere too.

When we arrived they didn't have any record of our booking and they said that they didn't take bookings even though I had a bookatable confirmation email. Luckily they did have space for us so they made us up a table.
Food was nice though the bill did seem a little high.
They did seem in a bit of a hurry to get us out, we'd paid and were finishing our drinks but they took the candles from our table and blew them out but didn't do that to the table next to us.
