About Indian Room Balham
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.’
London, SW12 9EZ

Indian Room Balham Ratings and Reviews
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.
The dishes were perfectly prepared, each with a distinctive flavour and appearance so unlike the usual mishmash of colours and flavours at an average Indian restaurant. All tasted absolutely delicious without exception.
Service was attentive without being intrusive. Attention to detail was in evidence everywhere even in the loos which were regularly checked! This place exudes confidence and is an absolute winner. Last Friday evening it was completely full by 8.30pm so booking is advisable
I booked this restaurant for a meal with friends as there was an offer on. I was very pleasantly surprised by the comfort , service and good portion size as well as the delicious dishes. The squid starter was very nice, not at all chewy. The vegetable side dishes were lovely and fresh. Service was friendly but discreet.
Excellent restuarant. We went before heading off to see the fireworks in London so sat down around 6:15 pm. We got 30% off the bill, presumably for eating early. The food was excellent the staff really friendly. If we are ever near Balham again this would be our number one choice.
Indian Room always hits the spot - I keep on finding what I think is my favourite then another tops it. Lamb rogan and chicken dansak are classics done brilliantly and the fish curries are delicious. Excellent vegetable sides, light fluffy pilau and doughy naan with crispy edges. Mongoose lager and good value decent house wines top it off. Sunil and the team always welcome you like their best friend and although the place is always packed (book!), they are so attentive and never make you feel rushed. This really is the top curry restaurant in SW London, forget Tooting...Indian Room Balham's where it's at!
I've eaten at Indian Room loads of times over the last year and always thoroughly enjoy my meals here!
The menu has a real variety of choices on it- they're also really hospitable if you fancy something a little off-peaste too. So one tip: don't be afraid to ask if there's something not on the menu that you fancy.
The wine list is also relatively good- I usually tend to go for the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc (always a safe bet!)
What makes this place fantastic though is the service. The staff are all so friendly, really knowledgable and so welcoming- whether it's a special occasion or just a quiet dinner.
I always really look forward to coming here! It's usually worth booking on a fri/sat night as it's so popular though!
Booked this place to meet some friends on a Thursday night. Glad we booked because when we got there it was full. The staff were extremely polite and helpful (despite it being full), the food was really good quality and decent portion sizes and the whole thing was a reasonable price. Will absolutely go there again and I'd recommend it.
Been going to the Indian Room for years now, because a) its just around the corner, b) the food is great and you don't leave feeling like you have just eaten a ton of oil and c) the waiting staff are friendly.
Per usual, food was great washed down with a few Mongooses and the service was great.
Will def be back again.
