    Would not recommend. Fish, cheese and prawn starters very dry. Vegetarian aubergine and lentil curry was decent, though.

    The lamb chop made me close my eyes, shed exactly one tear, and think about my mother. Get it.

    The lamb chops were actually quite dry, which was a real bummer after lining up for an hour :(

    The lamb chops are heavenly. Lamb curry was great too

    Went on a Saturday night, unbelievably busy. Food was excellent, can't fault the quality, portions very small especially the rice. The service however was atrocious. Food 9/10 Service 2/10

    Simply the best curry house in London. Chaotic and busy, but with the best food at very affordable prices. Service is idiosyncratic but perfectly matched. Lamb chops are a must!

    Food is very tasty but overall you can feel it's not very good quality products. Everything has a price in the end.

    Tried a bit of everything at a birthday party and besides the fact that you can byob (bring your own booze) there's nothing special.

    Lamb chops, sekh kebabs, chicken keema, dry meat curry and mango lassi are all absolute musts.
  • Shayan G.
    Great place. Kinda noisy and stuffy inside but great food. But the mango and pistachio kulfi is simply the best in the world.

    What a great place. The food is spicy and delicious, the lamb chops are scrumptious and you can bring your own drinks! It tends to get very noisy, but if you don't mind, this restaurant is fantastic.

    Even if this place is famous for its mixed grill, there is hope for vegetarians: 6/7 veggie dishes on the menu.

    If you can bide your time and wait in the queue you will not be disappointed. Fantastic quality of food with quick service. Would highly recommend the lamb chops and the shish kebab.

    Food was delicious and staff were super friendly. Some of the dishes (lamp chops, samosas) were too spicy, a bit outside my comfort zone.

    Haven't been here for a couple of years. Still lives up to the hype, but only just. You won't find your standard curries here. Lamb chops are good, but slightly expensive for the £7 price tag.

    Dishonest servers. You CAN pay by card - our waiter lied to us to try to get us to pay in cash. Won't go into the details but no question that it was on purpose and not a misunderstanding

    What a shame. From being an East London delight to a disappointment over the past year, this once amazing restaurant has really let standard slip. Look for reviews from 2016 before going.

    You'll small like mad when you get out of here... but it will be worth it if you like good curries. Not exactly a place for vegetarians (they have only some options, none of which is really good)

    Get the lamb chops for starter, or just get the mixed grill, best in London.

    Good spot with basic, tasty menu but I wasn't blown away. We asked for spicy and our dishes turned out quite mild. Portions are relatively small compared with other places. Popular place so book ahead

    Cheap and good. Lamb chops are to die for. Bring your own beverages, no additional charges or corkage. Come in a big group and eat as much as you want and yet you'll find it hard to hit £15 each.

    Awesome and affordable Indian restaurant, a better value than Dishoom! Really recommend the garlic naan, chicken tikka masala, daal, eggplant, a jug of lasse, and if you're into lamb then the dry meat

    Fantastic grills, and very affordable. Don't wear delicate clothes (eg. dryclean only) because you will smell of spices upon leaving and need to wash them.

    Good quality food but a bit overrated. Once you get in you get rushed to finish your meal & get out. Don't expect to spend a quiet night in there.

    Great for large groups. Food is quality - recommend the lamb dishes. And you can bring your own alcohol. Parking isn't great, so get there early or get the tube.

    A London institution. Described by many as the very best place in London for kebabs and Tandoor roasted meats cooked Pakistani style. Meal for two, including service, approx. £40

    Anything from the grill/tandoor is fab! Lamb chops are still as good as ever, and the koftas are juicy and flavoursome. However the curries always seem like an afterthought and are average...
