A nice, inviting place with friendly service. Not as large a menu as some places, but most of your favorite things and some interesting and tasty variations. Its located in the Raddison but a short walk from some other hotels in the area.

There was literally no effort put in preparing the dish. Aloo tikki chat tasted really bad and panner dish was just like some paneer cubes were added to paste gravy.

Our waitress Christina helped us celebrate my mums birthday on Thursday. I have never received such a warm welcome from a loving lady that treated us like her own family! The meat dishes are the most tender I’ve ever eaten and I will be back soon for more. This restaurant is a hidden gem

My final dinner in England. I’ll fly tomorrow morning. The meal had to be memorable, and it was! I began with Palak Gosht (lamb, spinach, & nutmeg). I put this on top of Jeera Pulao (Basmati rice prepared with fried onion, royal cumin, & saffron). My salad was unique, and good. It was a sliced onion and chili salad. I was on the line about having a dessert. I was encouraged to try “the only authentic Indian dessert on the menu”! It was Carrot Halwa with Malai Kulfi (grated carrot and cashew nut). The dessert was amazing, and so was the lamb. Which was better? Come on over and try for yourself.

We were very happy to discover that the Heathrow airport hotel we were staying in had an indian restaurant in it. We were even happier when we tasted the food. It was excellent! The portions were a little smaller than we have had in other restaurants, and we wished we had ordered 3 main course dishes instead of 2 to share.

The only drawback was the music. It was very loud pulsating electronic music which we found very intrusive, hence the 1 star for ambiance.

Positives:
The waiter Hugo was very friendly and helpful.
Starter was good.

Negitives:
I found the main dish of lamb rogan josht to be very bland.

The ambiance in the restaurant does not have a feeling of quiet relaxing atmosphere, It was so loud at times i struggled to hear what my colleague was saying.
The table was far to small to accommodate the food we had ordered and we ended up in putting extra food on our plates.
The drinks (beer) was far too expensive nearly £5.00 for a small beer.

Overall i was not impressed by the restaurant and had it not been for the attentive service of Hugo, our waiter i would have refused to pay the service charge.

I shall not be recommending Annayu to any of my friends soon.

Booked table but wasn’t ready when we arrived and had to stand around for about 10 mins.

Seemed like not enough waiting staff so service was slow and food came out in a messy order. Eg nan cane about 5 mins after food.

Overall was poor experience, food was nice but won’t recommend and visit again

The food was good, but it would have been better if our food arrived on time. The waitress whilst nice was scatty. She managed to get my order wrong so had to wait for my curry to be cooked again. At the same time my naan went stone cold. My partner did not like the butter chicken it didn't taste authentic.

This restaurant is located within the Radisson hotel at Heathrow airport. We stayed the night before flying to America and had a fabulous meal. This restaurant is modern but stylish, good service and a very good menu. The food is effectively upmarket Indian cuisine but with lots of different dishes to the normal selection as well as some traditional favourites. The chefs emphasis seems to be more on lovely subtle aromatic flavours rather than just hot and spicy which made a nice change. The was a good wine list as well. The food is a little pricy but then again you are effectively at the airport. I would certainly eat here again if staying at the airport.

The food was tasty but very small portions. Service was also good. Dinner plates were very small which looked like quarter plates which was shocking in a grand hotel. Also the cutlery was very basic and definitely not what you would expect in a hotel like Radisson Edwardian.

I was really disappointed with the ambience of the restaurant as it looked so bare and dull. No décor reflecting that it is an Indian restaurant although plenty of space for colourful display etc. There were pictures of flamingo's which was really odd ! instead something reflecting India in a modern way would have been more effective.

I found the food to be very bland. I have dinned at this restaurant a year prior and was hopeful of a changed or a fresher menu.

My request to add more spice to the dish did not happen. In fact I was later informed that it was not possible to add spice to it. This tells me that the food is perhaps already pre-packaged, heated, and served.

All in all a major dissappointment. This should be a class Indian Restaurant in a class Hotel (and the Hotel is) which is a real shame. If I were the Chef, I would take serious note!

Food was very very good, but service very slow due to lack of staff, and hence the food arriving cold to the table. The Greek lady that served us was very sweet and helpful. The credit card machine was not working at end when it came to paying the bill. So all customers in our group had to march back and forth to main hotel reception where they accepted payment on one card. This was a huge inconvenience and a great disappointment and not a good way to end the evening!!!

The food was tasty. Some of the dishes had the same sauce added to them. Disappointed as I have been there before. Maybe change of chef. Also wanted to have a sweet dish but they had eggs. I am allergic to eggs so could not have it. It was my 65 birthday. Maybe should have change of menu. Also not much variety if you are a vegetrian. That was in main menu.
