    Once again a great lunch with fantastic food. Perfect venue for business with a large seating area away from the bar to sit and talk before going to the table. A bit on the pricey side but food and venue are worth it.

    The 4 course + prosecco/bellini set menu was really tasty and the portions were generous. The bar area looked like the kind of place where you could happily enjoy a few cocktails and there was a good choice of wines by the glass. Good veggie options too.

    We booked the special offer (2 courses for £16), which the staff seemed unaware of, but were able to produce the right menu when prompted. The food was delicious and - at the offer price - very good value. The one element which disappointed was that the restaurant is attached to a very noisy bar - not the place to go for a romantic dinner! But otherwise, a very tasty meal at a good price.

    My first visit was a hastily arranged lunch which transpired to be an excellent if fortuitous event. Despite being located at the back of a building site there was no negative impact on our enjoyment of the food nor any noise that interrupted our conversation. The food was excellent particularly my scallop starters. Service was attentive but not intrusive and the room has a nice feel to it. A tad on the pricey side but probably to be expected in the heart of the city.

    We arrived early so decided to have a drink at the bar. It was quite busy but we were served quickly and efficiently. We were called to our table at the reservation time. The waitress was very professional and attentive. The food was very nice and well presented. I would recommend the Open Table 3 course deal.

    I took a client couple to this restaurant on recommendation from another colleague and my clients were very impressed. They thoroughly enjoyed the meal and loved the restaurant too. Excellent & varied menu, good size portions and side dishes sufficient for each of us to share. I would definitely go there again.

    We had booked to dine on a Friday night and the restaurant was surprisingly empty. The staff were not very accommodating in offering alternatives to set menu options to cater for restrictive diets. I've been here before for private functions and preferred it those times to this time.

    There aren't many venues in The City that offer a well priced lunch in a venue where you can actually talk and you don't need to book far in advance. Mint Leaf is great for that. Have eaten here many times and will continue to do so...

    The bar here is great, stylish and buzzy. In the restaurant, we were one of only 3 tables on a Friday night and the atmosphere was distinctly lacking. The food was ok, not fantastic. I prefer Cinnamon Kitchen any day. The service was attentive but the waiter didn't have a clue about the menu. He was unable to recommend any dishes and also forgot one of our side dishes (which he tried to cover up). This place is great for a drink - the cocktails were great - but there are much better Indian restaurants around so I won't be going back for food.

    Set menu option was great - however we ordered a cocktail as soon as we arrived and it took a long time to arrive. We had to chase twice. But everything else was quick and service was friendly. Would definately return. Excellent porn star martinis - shame we had to wait a little while for them

    The good parts.......The ambience is good, it looks quite amazing really. Unfortunately, thats it! We had a set menu. Not trying to be funny but the main tasted of chicken in tomato soup (Chicken Murgh), no substance to it at all. Given other comments on here maybe we just got one of those bad days. Anyway, won't be back.

    First rate service and ambience was pleasant though location a bit tricky, tucked away. Menu is lovely and happy hour cocktails made it a good early evening option for value. Starters can work as tapas so you could order selection to get a really great sharing option for 3 or 4 and miss the main altogether if you wished, and all food was beautifully presented. Thoroughly recommend especially for those discerning spicy preference.

    I went for a 'business lunch' but was paying out of my own pocket. 3 of us sat down to enjoy the £15, 2 course City lunch. The service was questionable (when did it become the norm to be served by 4 different people?). The food was OK nothing special and the chicken curry was VERY rich. Drinks were strange - the first ever indian that didnt have beer on tap - so for £4 quid you enjoyed a half filled pint glass of cobra from a little bottle... The real shocker came with the bill - even though we had opted for the fixed priced menu, ordered popadoms a couple of beers and lemonades and a side - the bill came close to £100 quid with service. I will never visit again.

    Had the 2 course deal, portions were a good size and the paneer starter and chicken currey were wonderful. We had a server and another gentleman asking us the same questions twice over so it was a bit intrusive and irritating. Wine prices aren't as competitive as other establishments. Cocktails are standard London prices out of the happy hour but really not worth it as I have never seen such small cocktails.

    We had the £14.95 lunch deal. Food was good - Mutter Paneer tasty, well presented. Naan bread fresh and warm. The space is large and at lunchtime was quiet. All clientele (except me and my friends) were business men (not surprising giving the location near Bank). My friend asked if she could switch her rice or bread option for a small side salad and was told flatly "no". That didn't impress us... not because she couldn't switch (its a set menu), but because the option to order a salad alongside ought to have been offered. The tone of the waiter was along the lines of "I'm here to serve you a set menu, and I'm not even going to think about what you actually want, or what would make you enjoy your meal here more" which was a shame.

    We booked this restaurant prior to going to an event at the Cass Business School. It was their last sitting of the lunchtime trade at 3pm - apart from being a tiny bit rushed at the beginning because the kitchen was closing - I can't fault the staff at all. Everyone was extremely helpful and smiling. I was there for a business meeting - due to the time of day, it was very quiet and the right atmosphere to conduct business. The food was delicious. I can imagine they would go the extra mile for an event. Really enjoyed it.

    I had a two person business lunch and as we only had a two hour slot to eat, we were regularly being approached to order quickly, it was like they didnt want us to talk so they could turn the table around quickly. As it happens, at 2:30, the restaurant was mostly empty so wouldnt have mattered any way. All the food is mild, so it you like spicy, this is not the place. My venison dish was lovely but it intimated that it may be better with rice and rice wasnt needed at all which was a bit annoying. The other dish was the special, a lamb shank and that was also very nice. Desserts, all looked great, but nothing spectacular. nice decor and atmosphere though

    Very good food, although rather pricy, and not much choice - pretty much one meal of each type of meat, fish, vegetable. Service was great - very attentive. ambience was nice enough - a little 'cocktail lounge'-y, which was as expected. I would say the tables are very close together - I don't want to hear my neighbour's conversation.

    We booked the 3 course set lunch with Bellini for £25. There was one vegetarian and one meat option for each course and we both opted for the vegetarian starter and chicken main, followed by the mango brulee dessert. Every course was excellent and the main was huge, with a lentil side dish, rice and flat breads! My friend said it was the best Indian food he had eaten in a very long time.
