About The India Restaurant

For an atmospheric Indian meal only a stone’s throw from London’s Cannon Street station, The India restaurant delivers every time. This snug 'n' cosy restaurant is set entirely underground in a series of three dining rooms each decorated individually with whitewashed vaulted ceilings and comfy leather chairs, and the intimate setting is perfect for dinner parties and celebrations. Popular with City types, commuters and curry-lovers alike, The India has an extensive menu which features classic curries such as jalfrezies and balti masalas, and the restaurant's signature dish is the thali – a selection of traditional dishes presented in small bowls on a round tasting platter. The chef prides himself on creating classic renditions of the subcontinent’s most exclusive gastronomy – Vintage Indian cuisine. Unobtrusive, seamless service is the byword here. It’s no surprise that The India is busy at lunch and with an after-work crowd, and has a popular private dining room for events.

Not what it used to be

Seems to have slipped in quality, not what I remember.

As ever at The India the food was great as was the service. However when coming to pay the bill, and noticing that the 30% advertised discount had not been deducted I was told that because I had not booked through the restaurant's website I was not entitled to it. Despite remonstrating with the staff I was informed that the full price would be payable – a salutary warning to anyone looking to save a few quid with supposed ‘special offers’. I have eaten at The India many times on the past but will not now be frequenting in the future given their unhelpful and frankly misleading attitude. Buyer beware!

A slightly different menu made this a good option for us, rather than the same items. Service was good.
