First off, the decor etc is a bit no frills, but you don't come here for the decor, you come to eat The saag...such is my obsession with it I have tried about 6 different you tube recipes trying to replicate it at home to no avail. I suspect an indecent amount of ghee goes into it but it is... More

Whilst working in and around London I've been to many good Pakistani restaurants including the fantastic Lahore and Tayyabs but this one alongside it's counterpart in Coulsdon can not be beaten. It's all about the food which is always superb, quality produce always well spiced and tender. And for my fellow contractors it's as cheap as a Wobblespoons with bring... More

Me and my partner ate here yesterday (just adding that me and boyfriend hadn't seen each other for a month) walked in from the rain and was told rudely to leave my umbrella outside-fair do's. Sat down and he brought out 2 poppadums with no mango chutney (found out later they charge 50p for it). We ordered the mixed grill,... More

So we had a Saturday evening meal. The Mirch has cleaned up it's act following several complaints about cleanliness. The food was so tasty. Their onion bhajia's are the best. We ordered too many dishes again. Memorable was the chicken curry on the bone. We'll be back.

I love this place but the last curry I got was far too mild. I think when they see a white girl they instantly decide to make it less spicy. I spent my summer in India - if I order a hot curry give it to me please!

Been coming here for years and it's reasonably priced, nice food, friendly staff, always fairly busy, nothing fancy, bring your own alcohol. I have never had any complaints with the food and I can be fairly fussy! It's a little annoying that the card machine is always broken! Clean toilets so I assume clean kitchen! I will continue to come... More

The service was ok, not efficient or helpful just ok. The restaurant was clean. They do not accept cards so only cash and its bring your own alcohol. The food was hot but we... More

All I will say is that the choices for people with garlic allergies or people who follow the Jain lifestyle, there is not much choice, I had 4 choices: Mushroom bhajia, aloo bhajia, potato curry or aubergine curry. One particular waiter was rude; after I explicitly said I can't have garlic or chillies he said "you can either eat it... More
