    A good dish is more than a sum of its parts. Unfortunately thats not the same for Light of India. Every dish we had felt like it was made by someone who has no idea what indian cuisine is, and just put together ingredients without any care. Every single dish was bland and flat, lacking both the spices and the depth that one can expect from an indian cuisine. I do not wish to sound insulting, but i had better curries microwaving meals from tesco than what they served us. It is a shame because you can see that they do not do so out of malice or greed. The staff are friendly, and the food is presented very nicely. But with how poor the food tastes, their chef has no place working in the restaurant, im sorry. 2.5/5 stars. Fresh good quality food, its just prepared really poorly.

    We had an excellent meal at Light of India. The service was impeccable. Maria was our waiter and the entire staff was extremely gracious and attentive. We ordered butter chicken, pistachio korma chicken, royal monkfish curry, and tandoori chicken. The standout dish was the monkfish curry but the entire meal was amazing.

    We had high expectations after reading the other reviews but the food itself is not worth what we paid. Service was good and ambiance as well.

    Nice mixture of classy and classic decor.Staff were professional and pleasant. Food was very good. As people say, the compulsory service charge us a liffle steep, but we would have tipped the same amount for the overall experience.
