Writing this review whilst sat in the banqueting room. Terrible service. Came here for a educational event booked for 50 people around 40 attend but they ran out of starters for the last 5 guests. We asked for the alcohol to be removed from our take which the waitress was more then happy to do only for the manager to... More

We waited for almost half an hour for our drinks order to be taken. Waiter was rude and not really interested. Food was below average. I've been a few times before and the standards have really dropped. Not surprising that you can get a table on a Saturday evening without booking. Caraway is so much better.

Please don't bother with this KANCHAN. My family & I strong agreed it was the worst meal we have ever had. Maybe we should have taken the hint when we arrived & saw only 4 people dining. The chicken our Waiter started us with was really horrible smiley. After that it was downhill. The LAMB ROGANJOSH, KING PRAWN, PANEER MAKHNI,... More

Came here for my dad's birthday on Sunday eve at 6pm with only one other family in the restaurant. Even so it took an hour for our starters to come, and hour for the mains and even 20min just to bring our cake over. No one once came to ask if we wanted more drinks, and when we did order... More

After trying to decide which restaurant to eat in which would be child friendly and not to loud we decided to give Kanchans another try. It's been approx 10 years since we dined there and in all honesty there aren't that many good authentic Indian restaurants in East London IMO. Got a booking for 8 pm and were seated quickly... More

Attended a large function on the first floor. Food was good but general service and organisation a bit chaotic.

I wouldn't normally dream of reviewing a place 3 times, but there is something very, very odd with the endless terrible reviews on here and neither I, my partner, nor friends can square them with our experiences. They do have an affect. This has been our "treat" Indian restaurant for some time now - we actually ration ourselves, as we... More
