Great indian food opposite kings cross station and very friendly and funny staff. They have recently refurbished this curry house so looks fresh! Check it out.

A lovely dining experience for me and my wife. Food was tasty and they can modify dishes upon requests. Good bottle of Cabertnet Sauvignon chile and a relaxed ambience with friendly service. We shall return to try more dishes!

Very welcoming staff who seated me straight away although I was a bit early. Poppadums and chutney along with a large glass of white wine arrived promptly. Very tasty Chicken Madras and garlic nan bread. Will certainly recommend to friends!

Had a team dinner here for 8 persons, service was attentive , food was very good , we sat in the basement restaurant , very unusual decor , was like sitting in the Jungle - complete with a fish pond !

Well priced for a London eatery - we would go again.

Sensational meal in this packed Indian restaurant. Indian Lounge has one of the best reviews around the area and this was reflected by my meal. Lovely Lamb Qasuri Methi with garlic naan bread. Top place!

Having enjoyed eating here several times before over the last few years, I was a bit disappointed this time to see that the restaurant has become quite shabby and is now in need of either a really deep clean (particularly in the loos) or an overhaul. The food is still good – although not everyone at our table loved what they had – but the service really let us down. I can't remember the last time I had to sit and wait for so long before anyone even asked us what we'd like to drink. Kings Cross needs a good, reliable Indian restaurant and Indian Lounge now needs to up its game in order to be that place.

Found this place on tripadvisor and it was definitely worth the trip. Staff are welcoming and made some good recommendations. The Goan fish curry and sag aloo was very nice. Hot wipes were provided along with a shot of amaretto. Marvellous!

The veggie dishes were very tasty (bhindi bhaji, tok special begum & saag paneer) but the prawn madras was a bit of a let down. Obviously a base sauce spooned over what ever meat or veg you choose with little else.

Food was really good when it eventually arrived. After an hour and a half we still hadn't got out starters so we cancelled them and had our mains which were very tasty. Wine was rubbish but Cobras were ice cold. Chris the very camp waiter was fairly amusing at first but it got a little wearing in the end!

Selected due to convenient location adjacent to Kings Cross. Stayed til nearly closing due to great food, service, and fun atmosphere.

Generally in London I find good service equates with average food, but not here! I had to go with my standard curry for the first visit, but will return to try some intriguing menu options. Even the house wine was well-above the quality generally served in most Indian restaurants around town.

I will definitely be back! 🙂

Excellent restaurant in close proximity to kings cross. Fast and efficient service with friendly faces. Seated immediately and drinks order taken quickly. Poppadums arrived with fresh chutney tray. Lamb samosa starter was nicely presented and was tasty. Chicken vindaloo was spicy and bursting with flavour - just the way I like it. Garlic nan and pilau rice were good too. A complimentary shot of amaretto with the bill - can't get any better? A must go if you're around the area.

We ordered three dishes: sag paneer, dal, and chicken tikki masala. The first two were good but the chicken tikki was much more red based than we have ever had before and therefore not what we were used to. I had been salivating in anticipation of a great tikki, so it may have just been our expectations to be fair. Our server ran after us at the street corner to tell us we had not tipped enough. Tipping overseas is all over the place and we usually meet the local custom, but this was a first for us. So this wasn’t a bad experience just different from what

Fabulous service. We were a large group so quite loud but I let them know in advance so we could be sat somewhere separate from other diners. The space downstairs was fab and perfect for our large group.

Nice restaurant, I liked the waterfall feature downstairs.
The food was nice but have to say I’ve had better especially for the London prices.
The waiter was very theatrical if a little over the top, could be bordering on offensive to some people though

Really nice business lunch in relaxed and informal surroundings. Staff were super-friendly and helpful, and food was great quality, with a really imaginative menu, (I'd never had curried cheese before!). Price was what you would expect. A very slight downside was the venue itself looked a little tired, given it is in a location surrounded by glitz and new-poshness, and this place has obviously been here for some time, however it was not so tired as to be a problem or anything like that. Our waiter was particularly friendly and welcoming, and I totally recommend this location to other diners.

We would definitely recommend this restaurant. We thoroughly enjoyed the food, served by friendly staff and good ambience. We liked the water feature in the downstairs of the restaurant and the Bollywood music in the toilets! Music in the restaurant was restrained so allowed us to have a conversation without having to raise our voices.

Fantastic place. It was busy when I arrived but was seated immediately. The restaurant had a buzzing atmosphere with customers upstairs and downstairs. Drink order was taken quickly and arrived within a minute. The food was delicious with spices at the right level. Friendly and helpful staff that had a smile on their face. Amaretto on the house at the end of the meal which was very nice. Highly recommended.
