I found this to be better than some of the well Known michelin starred indian restaurants in central london. One of the most delicious meals ive ever had. The beetroot cutlet was a highlight.

The Restaurant has very cosy concept. Service was good and the food was good. The waiters were trying hard to upsell items that we didnt want and almost seemed to be disappointed when we said we do not want any starters or alcoholic drinks. It...More

I couldn't recommend somewhere more. We waited for our table with amazing cocktails, then sat down and had the non-vegetarian tasting menu please a bottle of wine. I've honestly never had food like it, even travelling around India. Fantastic. I can't wait to go again.

I went with friends for a special birthday dinner. The Non Vegetarian Tasting Menu with paired wines was terrific! Each course was a delight. Here’s the menu and first four courses... we couldn’t quite make it to the fifth course!!

Hi Katherine We're a bit perplexed as well. Ideally it should come up automatically. Try writing the review without putting in the location. We're sure that should help. Let us know if it doesn't. Thank you. A
