Frankly the food was well below par, we ordered two separate chicken dishes and the chicken was absolutely bone dry. It was as if the chicken had been pre-cooked, left in a fridge for days and then warmed up and dropped into the sauce. A...More

We come here regularly and the food really is fantastic. The only problem is that it's a victim of its own success and small size. Consequently, the staff, unless you're the last sitting of the evening, are always hurrying you along so they can get...More

I went on 18/10/2017 for food. It was open till 11:30PM. I reached around 9:30PM. I was surprised by the behaviour of the staff. I asked for a seat. The staff said that they cannot take anymore order. So I went out. After few minutes...More

Delicious meal. A bit crowded and noisy, and you get the impression the wait staff wants you to move on as quickly as possible, but a perfect place to get a good meal in the neighborhood.

Tesco microwave curry, undercooked chicken and yesterday's pappadams. Total disaster of food. Don't order house wine because it is distilled urine with radish. Service was good though, truth be told.

An absolute disgrace. Service was an embarrassment. Waiter dropped plate on me when collecting plates, no apology, just a glare. When it came to paying bill, total cost seemed a little too high, however the receipt was a handwritten scribble. When asked for breakdown, turns...More

Great traditional Indian. My Chelsea favourite and I've lived in the area for 3 decades. Never had a bad meal here but had some real corkers.

Most Indian restaurants are usually a feast for vegetarians. Surprisingly Noor Japan is very disappointing on this front. The veggi biryani was very disappointing. Conversely the chicken dish was very good. Atmosphere good, prices reasonable, service good. Busy place. Would return ....but can't really as...More

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

There's something special about Noor Jahan that not only attracts big-name eaters - Hugh Grant, Eric Clapton and Rowan Atkinson, but also a veritable army of devoted regulars who make a habit of dining there. Maybe it's the Chef specialities, like the special recipes for chicken, lamb, king prawns and duck, but also our own British invention of chicken tikka masala. Lunchtimes are slightly subdued with the business of the day, but evenings are more vivacious and warm. The decor is simple, the service welcoming, and the cooking convincing. No wonder Noor Jahan has been a local landmark for nearly forty years.
