    It's really nice, but most of the dishes are for shirring, so a bit pricey if you are hungry.

    The food was really good (ruby and daal). The stuff is extremely friendly (offering teas and chai latte while waiting and even taking 2 of our small plates off the bill for waiting slightly longer!)

    Food was regular and definitely not up to 9/10 quality,, i would give it 7/10 max.. My chicken biryani was not hot as it should be - it was warm. But Service was excellent.

    Try the Spicy lamp chops with the House Black Daal! From the starters choose the Vada Pau. And don't forget to get a cocktail to "refresh" your taste. Great personnel, very nice environment.

    El pollo ruby y el biryani de cordero acompañados de la salsa raita están súper súper ricos. Se pueden evitar el pollo tikka y la salsa daal negra. Precio/calidad mega decente y la atención excelente.

    Amazing food but on weekends, expect to spend up to 45 mins waiting outside and another 45 mins waiting in the bar downstairs. The bar doesn’t have phone reception, but it does have free ‘ChaiFi’ Read more

    The best place in Covent Garden for tasting authentic Indian food, hot really hot even in mild version. Once you are doing with the meal head to their basement for wine a and cocktails

    London has the best Indian food (save for maybe India!) Lots of authentic family-owned places, but this is a little more refined and "foodie." Worth a try!

    Loved the okra fries, and could visit only for it . Pav bhaji was good and dal makhani just as it should be, not too spicy, bit too mild. Great ambience and buzz around. Makes it to my favorites list.
