    Had the cod for entree and lamb tandoori for 2. Not too spicy and portions are not as small as mentioned. Very good:)

    Excellent wine list. However, the food is so spicy that the great wines are no match, should have taken beer. Nice drinks bar downstairs. Excellent lamb and chicken.

    Delicious Indian cuisine and fantastic service. We pointed out that they had under charged us and they thanked us for our honesty with complimentary cocktails. Excellent all round.

    Love the food, however, very corporate ambiance.

  • Square M.

    Soaring ceilings and vintage wood panelling create a mood of club-like serenity while head chef Vivek Singh cleverly melds Indian spices and flavours with fine-tuned European techniques. Read more

    The loin of red deer, accompanied by a spicy tandoori sauce, was outstanding

    Great Indian food in a great atmosphere (an old library). Can be a bit noisy but worth the experience.

    Delicious modern Indian food, perfect for a special occasion. Salmon carpaccio with crab, prawns & spiced carrot cake were all outstanding. Start with a peach bellini. Mmmmm

    One of the best Indian restaurant in London. Very nice venue with a lounge bar in the basement.

    Fantastic modern Indian fusion. Beautiful balance of heat and spices. Chicken livers are amazing. Don't knock them till you try them.

    This building used to be a library. Great food and drinks

    Theresa T 💞 · August 7, 2014
  • Oliver S.

    Expensive but deservedly so. Think colonial Indian food from the British point of view.

    Oliver Shreeve · August 6, 2014
  • Epicurious

    Be sure to try tandoori breast of Anjou squab pigeon with chickpeas and tamarind; and roast saddle of Cumbrian wild red deer with corn and millet kedgeree. Read more

    Chicken Curry is amazing!! should try!!

    Unremarkable and expensive. Food average and lacked subtlety, akin to average curry house only MUCH more expensive. And not even a thank you! Disappointed!

  • Justin K.

    Fine Indian cuisine in an old library building from the 1890s. Elegant, precise and full of flavor. Lamb and red deer were the crowd favorites.

    Really great taste with perfect service, recommend.

    Great food, wine, atmosphere. If you need to get somewhere after, ask the concierge about their private taxis. Luxury cars, good prices.

    Fantastic curry, highly recommend the early diner deal!

    Great and massive wine list. High quality food, nice atmosphere and staff always helpful, try the tandoori chicken!

    I'm not sure how it's Indian, exactly, but the warm chocolate soufflé is amazing. You may need to be alone with it.

    Try the 'Bombay style vegetables' for the appetisers...

    Roast Cumbrian wild red deer saddle with corn and millet kedgeree is an interesting, though expensive, way to fill you up. Read more

    Cocktails and appetisers are good, but the mains are really boring and bland.

    Try the Kedgeree with Smoked Haddock and Poached Egg - Lovely kedgeree here and strong Assam tea -,perfect morning breakfast

  • Lee P.

    Amazing experience, impressive interior, great cocktails but food isn't that much better than some other Indian places in brick lane. It's more for the atmosphere. Pretty pricey though.

    Lee Provoost · December 4, 2011
  • AskMen

    Launched a brand new cocktail menu. Highly recommended is "Don't Mess With Naga," a dizzying blend of Plata tequila, caramel liquor, lime juice, green-pear syrup, and Naga bitter. Read more

    Great modern decor with a library-esque finish... but a little sparse on Vegetarian!!

    Fantastic modern Indian, great service in a gorgeous setting. Get usual portion sizes out of your head though, these are pretty small

    Absolutely stunning indian fusion restaurant with perfect service. Lack of music is the only poor thing on this place. Dining experience is beyond expectations!
