The Golden Oven

Squaremeal Review of The Golden Oven ?

A well-liked Soho Indian equally popular for business lunches, pre-theatre suppers or romantic evenings, the Golden Oven offers exceptionally knowledgeable service, sound cooking and fair value in subdued – if unremarkable – surroundings. The menu keeps it familiar with tandoori mixed grills and the likes of lamb tikka, chicken jalfrezi and king prawn masala, but it’s also worth taking a punt on the chef’s specials – perhaps garlicky chilli chicken with a hot and spicy sauce. All-inclusive thalis provide a bit of everything and there are also sensibly priced set menus to be had.

A truely exceptional & authentic curry experience. You will not eat better Indian in Soho without a Michelin star, the food & service is exceptional, its a shame there is not a bit more space. A little claustaphobic but if you want a dead good curry in a hurry its the best around.

This place is fantastic. This was our second meal there and again the food was awesome. The service is personal. Value for money is definitely their and the relaxed atmosphere is the making of a romantic evening. Upgraded the house bottle of wine to a superb Rioja. This is an evening experience rather than just a meal. Will definitely be going back. Thumbs up, do yourself a favour and get booked in worth a try.

I've been here twice recently with groups of friends and we've always enjoyed ourselves – the food, drinks, service and overall vibe have been relaxed and really enjoyable. A good spot to go to in central London if you want a good curry and a good alternative to hiking down to the Indian restaurants in East London!
