  • The oldest indian surviving restaurant in the UK.
  • The first Indian restaurant in Britain opened its doors in 1926, and its turbaned Sikh doorman was one of the sights of London. Many of its early guests were colonial types who missed their curry.
  • Indian food ...
  • Indian dishes wonderful...
  • Rich history and terrific food. A little spendy, but recommend their lemon rice, pineapple curry, king scallop starter - and the pannacotta is to die for.
  • Anything here is good. Chicken tikka and shrimp to start. Biryani, lamb chops, dal tadka. Alphonso mango if in season.
  • Overrated pretentious Indian restaurant. Serves "Indian food" for ppl that don't know how Indian food actually tastes. Raj kachori/ mango kulfi were ok. Lamb biryani/chicken butter were not
  • Green prawn appetizer is spicy but delicious. I also recommend the lobster curry with lemon rice. This place has improved ALOT since my last visit!
  • One of three best places in London for Indian. Try chili martini!
  • Raj kachori is a must as an appetizer along with the green prawns .. Place and staff are helpful a must visit restaurant while in London
  • Raj kachori & chicken makhani are my fav. Some of the dishes were too spicy that I couldnt really taste them
  • First night in London we ate here. A nice selection of food for the vegan, plant-based or vegetarian. Ask for their vegan tasting plate. So good!
  • The definition of excellent traditional Indian! Always up to standard. Particularly love the biryani, 4 types of dhal, spinach etc etc, all simply good with service to boot.
  • One of the beat Indian restaurant in london ,, delicious starter and chicken biryani .. however , it is expensive compared to the other good restaurants
  • You must order the pinnacle curry side dish. Its extraordinary. Honestly, you wont be disappointed!
