What a lot of poor reviews for this place! Im going to give a mixed view! We went just before Xmas and it was heaving. Its very much a posh indian restaurant. I've had a lot of indian meals and this was the same food, just with a posher, more confusing menu.
Food itself ranged from perfect to so so. The lamb kebabs were outstanding, and the starter paneer with tamarind was very tasty too – i had the lamb curry to follow, with some side spinach, and these were very nice, and not covered in gloop, well spiced and certainly well presented, despite the slightly confusing menu. My friend had paneer for her main, but didnt finish, mainly because we were stuffed from the starters. Id recommend sharing starters, or missing them altogether given the prices! Service was fine given how busy they were, and all our food was served quickly.
What id object to is the price – the food just isnt good enough to constitute £50 per person for just starters and mains! There are other comparable and much better places in London, which give better value for money. It is for this reason, i would not recommend the place. I suspect that they get a lot of post theatre crowds as the location is good. However the best indian restaurants in this part of town are Veeraswamy (Piccadilly) and Tamarind (Mayfair) where the food is just out of this world and worth heading to instead.
