Very handy for a pre-Forum gig curry! Order taken promptly, staff attentive (but not overly-so) and friendly. Food was superb - the paneer massala main was sublime - beautiful sauce and plenty of paneer. The mushroom bhaji side was also among the best I've had, served with a fluffy, fresh garlic naan. Perfect all round. And all for under £20,... More

Went for a walk looking for food on a Sunday night. Came upon this place and was rather impressed. Popadoms weren't very nice, pretty oily. But the mains were really good. Had the lamb bhuna which was super tasty with mushroom rice & garlic naan. Saag aloo was awesome! Thanks, we will be back :)

We went here before a gig at the Forum, and needed a quick meal....it was anything but. We only wanted popadoms and a main meal. I presume they were understaffed. It took ages to order anything, and then we waited...and waited. We missed the support band, and there were no seats left, thanks to the rubbish service. The food was... More

Tell you what, this might have been the best curry I've had in London in years. I had a Saag Gosht, and it was quality - really flavourful, plenty of it, not too runny and not too dry. Had a garlic naan with it and it was suitably garlicy. The poppadums were perfectly fine and the staff had no problem... More

Worst curry I've ever had. Completely tasteless. A masala should be overflowing with flavour but all I could taste was a little heat and a little sugar (which shouldn't be there in the first place). Never again.

This maybe the first time I've gotten around to writing a review. I have been a customer for a good five years in which time Gulshaan has been consistently outstanding for various reasons: 1) service is always spot on 2) food is LIGHT! Not a greasy oily Indian with too much sugar, salt etc. Therefore we don't feel heavy and... More

Staff were friendly. Poppadoms stale, but were replaced on request. Not the best food - greasy pilau rice and naan, although the Karachi ghosht was tasty. Looks cheap, but a meal for four came to over £100, and definitely was not worth it.

We ordered a takeaway. It arrived in good time - half an hour or so. However, the food was not good - substandard fare. Some of it even inedible. The aubergine fry was saturated in oil and flavourless - inedible. The shish kebab meat was off - inedible. The garlic naan was lacklustre - where was the garlic flavour? The... More

Really disappointed in the lack of a decent restaurant in the area, which appears to be pretty affluent, so chose this, as it was close to our venue. Plenty of availability, although it did fill up whilst we were eating. Only went main course and dessert, and my Jalfrezi was really not what I'd hoped for. It usually comes up... More

My girlfriend and I (one Veggie one non), have been around London for years seeking a great Indian. We have been to the obvious places, like Brick Lane, but were always disappointed. Little did we know our future favourite curry place was sitting on our door step in Kentish Town. Gulshaan took us by surprise. Food: The taste and quality... More

Description
If you find yourself craving curry in North London, head for Gulshaan ��� one of Kentish Town���s most popular Indian restaurants. Situated right next to the tube station, it���s ideal for mid-week lunches and laid-back dinners before a gig at the Forum or a night out in Camden Town. The chefs use fresh herbs and spices and prepare each dish in the style of the region it originates from to guarantee an authentic flavour. The menu features familiar favourites like baltis, biryanis and seafood dishes like the spicy prawn madras. For something a little different, try Gulshaan���s signature dish ��� Murgh Bade Saba, which is chicken cooked with green chillis, coriander, ginger, yoghurt and a unique blend of herbs and spices. You won���t be disappointed!
