Fun evening. Excellent food and service.
Tables little close together.
Lovely this place. So glad that we discovered it. Everything is on point. Good clean food. Tasty & good value for money. Attentive friendly staff. Nothing too much a problem.
The best Indian by far in London! We’ve been coming here since it opened - never had a bad meal! Knowledgable and pleasant staff who remember our order including our refreshments! A warm welcome - Santa hats @ Xmas and Heart shaped balloons go r Valentines. Every dish has its distinctive flavour and personality - even the rice and they offer great discounts for early birds - wouldn’t go anywhere else for eat in or takeaway! xd
Perfect meal out, yummy food, lovely atmosphere and great staff.
Second time there, first experience wasn't great but thought I would give it another go as always busy but after this time that will be the last. The food was average and some dishes cold. Not great value.
It was the day before lockdown2- so I do understand they wanted to make cash... i livelyhoods are on the line, but.... there was NO attempt at social distancing- it was like valentines day evening where the tables are even more rammed.. NOT impressed by 5at hence the review. Food good
Shame the staff were really trying to rush us as would’ve been a lovely evening otherwise.
Always a great experience, it’s my go to Indian restaurant.
The food was absolutely amazing, we had the chicken chettinand, chicken jalfrezi and dal tarka, they were all delicious!
The service was also fab, the staff are super friendly and very attentive.
A gem of a restaurant. Beautiful food, lovely friendly staff all held together by the talented and inspirational Mubin. Balham would be a poorer place without Indian Room.
Booked an Indian restaurant in Balham instead of Clapham for a good early bird discount. Food was excellent. Service attentive. Covid secure and clean.
Excellent food and service. Fantastic restaurant and will return soon.
Food was great and nice atmosphere
Absolutely delicious dinner on Friday night. Fantastic options for vegetarians, the service was exceptional with attentive staff more than compensating for the 10am curfew and despite only booking at 8pm we had plenty of time - will be back again soon!
The service was excellent. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was tasty, however, both vegetarian sides I ordered tasted like they were cooked in the same sauce.
The food was amazing, the services was great. I will be coming back
value for money.
The service and staff were great but when you have Bradford curry it is pretty hard to beat. It lacked a lot of spice and sometimes flavour.
Excellent food, lovely room, nice plates! This is a restaurant (a good one) not a curry house.
The food was great.
My daughter has a nut allergy and they took this extremely seriously, making the necessary amendments to her meal choice.
really nice food and even better service, perfectly attentive and accommodating. Thank you !
Great food which we all enjoyed and nice friendly service. The extended eat out to help out was supposed to be taken of the bill but wasn't and forgot my glasses to check the bill until I got home.
Tables much too close, place full. No social distancing and staff not wearing masks properly.
Great food but given current climate, surprised by staff.
Great food we came during the eat out help out scheme. We noticed prices had increased during these days also wasnt happy that I was charged for popadoms when they were offered to us as soon as we arrived without expressing that they were not complimentary and we're actually £1.95 a popadom. Overall food was very delicious.
Very nice 👌 friendly staff and cute independent family atmosphere
It was a lovely meal! We will definitely have dinner again.
Awful service, booked a table a week in advance for 3 people turned up to be given 1 single table for 3 people, this is outrageous. Had a child with us last minute, didn’t think it would be an issue as we didn’t expect to be given 1 single table for 3 people.
Food quality was poor and quite bland
Very kindly let us takeaway our meal when an outside table was not available
Easily one of the best Indian restaurants in South london.
The best Indian restaurant in South London. Excellent quality. Reasonably priced.
Great food, terrible service. We were very rushed, waiters disorganised, all running round like headless chickens. Restaurant wasn't even that busy. We were given our bill without asking just as we'd finished eating and were then asked to leave before finishing drinks as next customers had just come through the door and they needed the table...
You took my olate away when my partner was still eating his meal. Not good.
Disorganized booking system - had to wait long for the table I booked advance. The food however was very good
A very enjoyable meal. Service was excellent when taking into account the current Covid challenges. Great to be able to sit outside on the street!
Great service from point of entry all the way until departure.
Nice first meal post lockdown. Sitting outside on a lovely day and as always the food did not disappoint.
Food was acceptable - nothing outstanding or poor. Service was good until we asked the restaurant to honour their 50% off food discount. The bill came back with a 30% discount so I had to ask a second time to honour what they advertised. Simply don't advertise deals you won't honour!! It was super cringey and embarrassing to have to beg for the discount from a begrudging waiter. He then asked where I saw the deal which I told him but it's not really my job to manage their advertising and promotion. Very disappointing and unprofessional to try and sneak the 30% discount past me when I showed the 50% deal on my phone. What a shame as I would probably go back if it wasn't for the blatant attempt to mug me off. :(
Lovely laid back lunch with family. Good food, will definitely go back
Excellent food as always!
The food is consistently excellent, fresh spices and not oily. Delicious king prawn bhuna, chicken makhani, palak paneer. We love Indian food and have tried many local restaurants in Balham, Brixton and Wandsworth. This is by far the best!
Restaurant did not recognise the discount promised in the reservation. Very disappointing
