Really fun place. Good afternoon menu but constantly asking for hot tea, it never was, always just lukewarm. Reasonable variety & quality of food, although the mustard dip was horrid & bitter

Lovely afternoon tea, so nice to have some masala chai - though certainly not as sweet as from a Chai Wala in India!

We were offered a great service and staff were pleasant. Me and my husband went for afternoon tea. Masala chai was nice. The presentation of food was nice. Food is good if you like that type of food which we both did. We received a lovely surprise for booking in for an occasion. A clean, pretty looking place especially up in the ceiling. Enjoyed the experience and time there. Left as happy customers :)

Falls down one star only bc it was NOT COVID-19 secure. Initially it was when we arrived at 730 but then tables filled up and it was like pre covid again, chair touching the other table behind us. I cannot fault the waiting staff, attentive despite it being busy and allowed me to sample wine before buying a bottle. Menu was outstanding
Reminded me very much of mums home cooked prawn curry, lamb biryani was amazing. The dahl was gentle but powerfully tasty with the biryani. Colocasia 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽 but worried re covid safety

The food was outstanding and the service was largely good but we were a little bit disappointed to be handed the bill immediately after dessert and told we had to leave soon as the next party for our table had arrived. I wouldn't normally mind but we weren't warned that we'd have 2 hours maximum (a 9 course sharing menu takes a while to get through) and after saying we'd be off shortly the staff proceeded to join another table to the end of ours and began setting it as we were finishing our drinks. I thought this was unnecessary as we hadn't even been there 2 hours at this point. A slight dampener on an otherwise excellent meal.

Absolutely fantastic food, reasonably priced with thoughtful, prompt and respectful staff. Our only issue was the lack of courtesy of some of the other patrons which is not the restaurant's fault. I will definitely be returning.

I went to the restaurant on 13th September. I would like to commend the staff for their wonderful service. Loved the ambience and food was excellent. It was true to its heritage and flavours that I am used to eating in India.

Wonderful experience. Would definitely come back for more of yummy food.
Only improvement I would recommend is perhaps more options for vegetarians.

Good menu, excellent food and acceptable wine list. The focus is on cocktails, not many beers on the menu.

We absolutely loved the food and service. Comfortable seats.

We had the £25 “Bib-Gourmand“ 9 course menu which was out of this world and has to be the best value meal in the west end. Staff were friendly and helpful, never rushing us from our table even on a busy Saturday night. But it is this that prevents me from saying five stars across the board - social distancing was non existent with our table less than one meter from tables on either side (with no screens) making us feel very uncomfortable and a large party of 12 were also very close.

I love the food it’s tasty but doesn’t bloat you unlike other Indian restaurants! Love the chaats the most hope in time the £15pp for chaat comes back once it’s safe too!

The day we visited was a very quiet Tuesday lunch time, there was only one other table there when we got there. I don’t know if they were short staffed in the kitchen or the equipments were not working, out food were very very slow in between courses. We complain but was not given an explanation. No management came and apologise until three hours later when she came and give us our bill and I questioned her about it. No matter how good the food might be, if you have to wait 30 minutes for each dish to come out, you lose your appetite completely.

Great service in a cozy & clean environment.
Friendly staff, very helpful and accommodating.

Food tasted lovely & fresh. The chicken biryani was tasty but other dishes could do with more flavours.

Tea was quite strong, but they offered extra hot milk to make it more palatable. It required lots of sugar to remove the bitterness.

Overall a great experience & would visit again to try different dishes

We came during eat out to help out scheme.
We really liked our starters which were chaat and crab balls
The main course wasn’t that good as it lacked spice and flavour. It was the chicken and fish curries on the set menu as the 50% discount.
The dessert was ok.
Our masala tea was very strong and lacked taste
The non alcoholic cocktail wasn’t nice as it tasted of yoghurt and ice
The ambience was very casual so wasn’t posh like you’d expect in Covent Garden
A bit disappointed

Smart casual restaurant with outstanding food. We had the 9 dish tasing menu -- £25pp, excellent value -- every dish was tasty and we left very full. Cocktails also very good.
Service was prompt and attentive.
My only (very) minor complaint is that the tables are small and challenging for an indian meal where dishes are usually shared.
This was our second visit, will definitely return.

The food was great and the service was good but my major concern was that there was zero social distancing inside the restaurant and it felt like a pre-Covid atmosphere. My friend and I didn’t feel particularly safe in there and are quickly and left.
