    Lovely Indian cuisine. Try their vegetable samosas, chili paneer, cauliflower & potato sebzi, chicken biryani, manchurian chicken. And for desserts, try their pistachio kulfi and masala chai tea.

    New menu! Greater choice of curries, recommend butter chicken or lamb although prawn very nice too. Disappointed by paneer on skewer, I really liked the old version in a bowl. Abs try pistachio kulfi!

    The railway lamb curry was absolutely delicious! It comes with two pieces of roti, but I substituted it for the rice to soak up the curry. The pistachio kulfi is also a must try.

    Can't go wrong with this place. Start with daipoori and samosa and the Chicken Chilli or Kebab Bun for your main.

    Seekh kebap +++, butter chicken ++, 65 chicken +. Great Indian food fresh and spicy, nice staff. Only the cheese naan is missing to make it perfect!!

    Absolutely awesome. Has an upstairs where it has what I would call street type food and then downstairs has a full on menu. Gorgeous food. We just asked the lovely waitress to give us lots of food.

    Outstanding service. Great place to go with a baby/toddler. Went to great lengths to make sure we were comfortable. Helped us with warming baby food when Selfridges/M&S cafés were being a pain

    Indian street food upstairs, dining downstairs. Everything we had was delicious, can't wait to go back and try the rest of the street food menu
  • Sameer R.
    The chicken lollypops are great! Masala chai a must. The Paneer chilli is spicy so be careful if you cannot handle the heat.

    Great street food with a kick. The lamb is amazing. Avoid the manchurian though - basically a glorified sweet and sour chicken.

    South Indian regular breakfast and dinner dish: Idli Sambar - steamed rice cakes with vegetable & lentil stew. Ideally located near Marble Arch and behind Oxford Street London W1.

    Are these the same guys as the ones with the food truck? Delicious, well-spiced Indian food - none of that identikit greasy curry here! Railway Lamb Curry was a highlight

  • Nick F.
    Nick FormosoJanuary 20, 2012
    Try the lamb curry - meat is succulent and tender. Chicken lollipops and Papri chaat are delicious. For the adventurous, try the Hakka Chilli Paneer - spicy!

    Delicious Indian food - ask for the 35£ menu for a very good value deal. Only negative thing is they don't give your left overs as take away... not good for food waste!
  • Deema_Fahad

    One of the best Indian restaurants in London❤️ .. Lower floor for fine dining ( more options ) .. Ground floor street food ..
  • Kate T.
    Overall, good food and an interesting cross section of different types of Indian food. Service was so-so. Also note no take away, so don't plan on carting your leftovers home with you.

    Loved their samosa 👌 the veggie and the chicken, both are yummy. Free wi fi
  • Alberto M.
    Very good food, a little bit too expensive, especially drinks and the fact that main dishes come without sides. And sides are priced quite high for what you get

    the upstairs menu is definitely better. smaller portions than elsewhere but it does mean you try more stuff. favourite dishes are the chaat and kola urundai.

    Awesome little Indian gem - masala chaat was legit as were the crab cakes and the lamb sagh dish! Def worth checking out...
  • Joan V.
    The menu of 35£ is excellent. The lamb was extremely good. The bad thing is that they didn't have doggy bags and lot's of food went to waste...

  • Christian D.

    Get the bhel puri and gobi manchurian. I enjoyed the tapas style but to be honest the dishes didn't blow me away. Good but not stellar.
  • Danny T.
    Danny TeokJanuary 19, 2014
    It wasn't disappointing. The Railroad Lamb curry, however, did not live up to my expectations despite the numerous recommendations. Preferred the chicken curry over the lamb. Good food for most

    Firstly, not very child friendly - no highchairs in the dinner room (basement) allowed! Food and service were both good, although starters were quite small and it worked out to be just over £30/head.
