We were a group of ten.

They were quite busy and some meals came out a bit late for us to all eat together, but the food was awesome.

Would definitely recommend.

The interior was modern and clean. The food overall was B-. Mildly disappointed as there is so much Indian in London, but missed here.

Food was spicy but not tasty. Poppadums were the best bit. Ambience and service were nice. Overpriced for food that was not a good as my local takeout.

to start with they didnt have my booking registered. This was my favourite Indian restaurant that we were coming back for over a year since first found it. Tonights experience was horrible. I brought my mother to try Indian food for the first time for her, and I choose to bring it here as it was my favourite place.
I agree place was extremely busy, however, the quality of food was something appealing. Onions starter was burned. My dish I always ordered tasted so bad, that I had to return it. When I addressed issues, waiter handled the situation very badly, his attitude was so bad. I requested to take one dish I couldnt eat off the bill, and he started arguing and fight that i already ate half of the dish. Ofcourse I did ate maybe 1/3 of the dish otherwise I wouldnt be able to say that it was made wrong. The idea is if I would like badly cooked Indian food, I would just do it at home.
I lost trust in this restaurant and its a shame but definitely not coming back.

They appear to manage toptable bookings separately so there was no table for us on arrival. We had to wait 20-25 minutes for our table which on a Tuesday night, with more than 24 hours booking notice was a bit much.

Interesting and unusual dishes, different from the usual Indian restaurant affair. Service was good, food came out promptly but we didn’t feel rushed. And prices were very good value compared to most other restaurants in the area. A great find and I would definitely return and recommend!

Very good masala soda and well spiced food. In a very secluded location with a calm atmosphere. Food reasonably priced, but wouldn't go for a G&T as drinks a little expensive. A pleasant experience.

Yummy Indian food. Could have had a bit more spice, but everything delish, and price reasonable. A few unusual items too.

Food was exceptional, especially the kebab platter and chicken korma were amazing. Quite hidden and would not have found without a recommendation but definitely worth a trip.

We were a group of 4 friends celebrating a pregnancy, a wedding and a friend being back from Australia for the first time in almost 2 years!

The food here wasn’t too bad and the decor was lovely it’s just a shame that the service was so shoddy.

My friend who was first to arrive was glared at by a waitress and when my friend said she had a reservation the waitress just pointed to another member of staff.

We were all seated by 6pm and twice tried to order a drink but were told we had to wait for our own waiter - it was 6.30 by the time we got to order drinks.

Despite being so late taking our drinks order so late after our arrival our waiter was definitely the best one there (that’s not to say he was good but just the best of a bad bunch!

If the food was amazing I may have been willing to look past the service but 2/5 is a very fair rating which we all agreed on!

Second time I have been. First was excellent but sadly this time was not. Lighting a bit too dark and food was very average (although peshwari naan was good). For a large bill I felt it was not justified this time.

Another excellent meal here, been a few times now. We would certainly return again for another visit. The biriyani was a particular highlight, and the other dishes were good too, although puddings not great and served in their packets. Service was slightly too slow/inattentive but overall a great meal.

Great food, and friendly ambience. My guest and I went with the expectation of a good curry and the opportunity to chat. We hit the jackpot as soon as we entered. Friendly and unfussed, with some wonderful choices of food.

mixed review-
i will continue to order takeaway from Est India but i do not plan to revisit. despite the amazing food and good ambience, there were only two waiters waiting tables in the evening and probably the kitchen was understaffed too, resulting in extremely sloe service. The waiters were polite and attentive but they did not have the capacity to serve all the tables. The restaurant has nice decor and ambience but the lighting could be slightly brighter. The food was tasty and i really like that we could try many dishes because of the options to order smaller portions for many dishes.

All the food needed more chilli heat and salt. The Dosa was very good - the lamb was tender and succulent as were the tandoori lamb chops but the Chicken Tikka Massala was rather sweet, lacked punch and an artificial red colour. My friend from Switzerland enjoyed which was the most important thing.
