A modern, glass-fronted Indian on the burgeoning strip between The Bedford pub and Balham High Road, Indian Room has found itself something of a haven for couples. It must be the serene whiteness (table linen, walls) and candlelight. Then there’s the health-conscious cooking using as little as oil as possible. Well worth trying are the handful of dishes unique to this popular local restaurant, a wonderful apricot chicken Kashmir among them. Chicken madras, and a super-hot chicken vindaloo are consistently the most-ordered of the ‘All Time Favourites.’

Second time I've been to the Indian Room, and just as good as I remembered. Service is attentive and polite, food is reasonably priced and very nice indeed. Will definitely be returning

The food and service were ok. The only disappointment is that the menu posted on Opentable has different prices to the actual restaurant. This makes the pricing significantly different and this was thoroughly disappointing.

Absolute first class service and food, best curry restaurant in London. Have been coming here for 8 years and it's still the best, never ceases to amaze, even on their crazy busy Friday nights.

Have eaten here 4 times now and each time the food is as good as the 1st time. Depending on which waiter you get you can ask for items that are not on the menu. We don't have starters as we order extra mains and each dish is tasteful. Will go back again and have used as a takeaway as well with no problems.

The food and service were great but the Open Table offer said we would get 30% off Sunday night dining and we were not giving that discount.

Had amazing evening at Indian Room last Sunday. The food was just great, very tasty and there was a plenty of vegetarian options, no stale frying oil taste or overcooked mess - everything we ordered looked and tasted excellent. The restaurant itself is very beautiful, everything is clean, no smell of curry inside, white table clothes etc. The staff was very polite and friendly, couldn't wish for more. Highly recommend!

We had a delightful night with family from overseas. It was great to show our guests that not all the great eating experiences are in the city and the parking is easier. The food was great and the chilly guide on the menu was accurate. The only down side was the lack of room around the table. Otherwise I highly recommend dinning here.

Was worth booking even if we only did it 45 minutes before our table on a Saturday night. It's clearly a very popular restaurant.

We made the right choice, the food was great and it's got a really great atmosphere. Will go again for sure!

If you were judging this restaurant by the look / location of the exterior, or by the assortment on the menu, you’d be missing the point. I visited early on a Tuesday evening in July, and the place was packed. (So reservations are a must.) I ordered a roasted duck curry, my dining partner a Bengal jumbo prawn bhuna. The flavours of both were a balanced mix of spice, sweetness and sharpness - not the ubiquitous cloying overly-creamy presentations you tend to find. Even the popadoms and Naan bread had a nicer texture and flavour than normal. Staff were friendly and attentive. I shall revisit in future.

We made an impromptu booking here for a mid week meal. The food and service were fine. The discount on the food made it a more acceptable amount and would be reluctant to pay full price.
