A wonderful evening! Food and service were outstanding. We ate outside so not as nice an ambiance as indoors but perfect for these times. We particularly loved: crispy kale appetizer, fish curry, dal makhani. The eggplant dish was very spicy. The sampler main course is a good way to eat multiple dishes. Will definitely go back again!

The air conditioning was out and no apologies were offered. In fact no mention was made until I asked at the end of the meal: so how long has your A/C been out? Answer: just today Again no apology. Also the piano was ridiculously loud and not very good

Love this place, so this message is for the owners... Two things I've noticed recently is that things seem a bit rushed, and I'm not sure why. Slow down a bit, particularly if you don't have people queueing.
The other one is the decor. The modern touch you added has killed a bit of the spirit of the BC. If we want modern, there's always Rasika, so why go that way?
Overall, it's a great place. It would be great if it does not become like others.
Thank you

We got off to a rocky start when the host couldn’t find our reservation and there weren’t any requested outdoor tables available. My disappointment was apparent. The host and waitstaff immediately rallied by relocating a table from the indoor lounge area to the outdoor patio. Within minutes we were seated in a lovely spot with a waitstaff and host extremely attentive throughout an excellent meal. Slip ups are understandable. But the way this team responded makes an already loyal customer all the more loyal.

Food was good! Indian grandmother liked everything (a big compliment)! We still think there’s room for improvement on the dishes in the thali. They could be spiced a little better. They were good, but not great.

The green chili chicken was great! Same with the mango cheesecake. I’d go back for those every day.

Service was ok—it was a special occasion and they gave us champagne (super nice!) but only gave it for 2 of the 4 guests at the table which felt weird. Waiter was also good (not great), a little smart-alecy at times.

Ambiance is always fantastic! Love the live music and interior. Amazing environment. Great for every special occasion!

We’ll be back!

We think this was some of the best Indian we have ever had. And we eat it in every place that we go. It comes in first place with another favorite in London. Every dish I had amazing spices and some we had never tasted. We sat outside on a beautiful day so the ambiance was perfect for natural reasons! Wanted to go back so much today but they don’t have lunch on Saturdays. Bummed! We will be back

Better than ever. Because of COVID (on both our parts) we haven't been here since mid-2019. They haven't lost a step. Fried kale is terrific. Garlic naan also. We had Tandoori Salmon & lamb chops.

Everything was so good - including the service - I said I wished we could wait an hour & start all over.

Consistently excellent food and service. Spices are not overdone and the wine list is more than adequate(without too extravagant prices). A mix of classic and adventurous with something to please everyone.
