    My go-to Indian restaurant in Central London. I like the samosas they do as a starter. Their peshwari naan is very sweet and hits the spot if you have a rich curry, like a chicken jalfrezi. Top staff

    Vegetable Biryani is very good and fulfilling. I had it with naan bread and I was very satisfied with my dinner. Staff is very accommodating and personable. Manuel will have a baby soon: congrats!!

    Indian is not usually "my cup of tea", but this place might change it. Tasteful Chicken Tikka Masala accompanied by a Cobra beer to 'flush it down'. Sides: nan bread and samosa. Very friendly staff!

    Good food! Friendly and quick staff, interested in their guests. All curries where great, and we loved the palak paneer with naan. Mmm!

    So me and the lads have a habit of going for a proper ruby. Since two of us moving to London, we've been on the search for a favourite. This is it. Best curry we've had in London

    Been coming to Punjab for years and it still impresses me! Start off with a cheese naan and try the korma! Don't forget the mango lassi!

    Definitely worth a visit. All the curries are great but my recommendations are the Chicken Tikka Masala and Acharri Murgha.
  • Chris C.
    Traditional and authentic Indian, typically great service and tasty food. Will return again when I'm back in London.

    A little too hyped for sure. Can't tell if it was better than in the US cause some places are pretty comparable. Doesn't come close to the real Indian curries though😳 achari fish, chicken tikka ✋🏼

    We arrived 10:50 and the accept to have us . Staff were friendly and the food was average but the portion size is smaller than usual size in other Indian restaurants.

    The vast selection and speedy service. You may have to queue for 5 minutes at peak times. The menu quotes are funny.

    Don't be put off by the central location or the 1975 decor. Make no mistake this is a heavyweight curry house. Methi Karahi and chilli naan.

    In my experience probably one of the best Indian restaurants in London.... Very good value as well!

    After 5' wait outside, we got a table. Attentive & fast service. Delicious. However, the bill couldn't be paid fast enough...

    Nice and smooth chicken tikka masala, just the right amount of spiciness for my non-Indian taste.

    Fantastic curries, decent prices, and tightly packed seating. Skip the lassi, papadum, and chutneys though — they're nothing special.

    Paneer Mukhani with Tandoori Chapatti/Roti is a delicious combo. Service is really quick as well.

    Decent food. Not as good as the "Punjabi Dhaba type Khana", but decent enough for UK. Try Chicken Tikka, Aloo Gobi & Pilau Rice. Decent service, music isn't that bad.Overall, it needs more improvement

    Food was an average Indian but good location situated in Covent Garden. Service is bad though. We arrived late and they were trying to get us out as early as possible including dropping the bill.

    The best indian Punjab restaurant in London
  • Christian D.
    Karahi paneer was a good choice but I was disappointed by the chicken Tikka masala. This is not a bad place but I had lots of better indian food.

    One of the managers poured a glass of water over me when we were leaving. He didn't regret or say sorry, didn't mean it. I couldn't get why. The food was good, anyway but so rude. I've never seen it
