Food as usual was high quality and excellent. However, the service was very poor, it took 50 min just to get the waiter to bring the menu. Thereafter, catching the waiter’s attention to place order or to ask for plates etc was a herculian task. The noise level in the restaurant is always an issue but was particularly worse on Saturday evening. It was difficult to hear conversation on our own table.

I can not fault the food however the service was terrible. They either didn't have enough staff on or the ones they did could not cope wth the demand. I wouldn't go back again.

We had a lovely lunch and were well looked after by our waiter. He explained all the food as it was served and the taste exceeded my expectations. We have a lovely Asian restaurant near us but this was a different class. Good value, we will go again. I can’t say more.

Lovely restaurant with great ambience and excellent location. Has beautiful outside eating area with heaters so great for autumn, spring and summer. Food was fabulous and wine too. Only issue was the waiter was so pompous, he was so sarcastic towards our table of three I could not believe it. We remained polite and did not say anything but now I wish I had. We did not tip as a result as he was so patronising. He actually laughed at me when I asked a question about whether rice came with the food or we had to order separate. I'll go again as it's such a lovely restaurant however if I receive that treatment again I'll call the manager immediately.

Very disappointing birthday experience: I was planning my dinner for 10 people a week in advance and came twice to restaurant to check the place and select the table. The host booked the table in my presence. On my BD dinner the table was not the one selected, in a dark place. The same host said that it was my choice and he did not make mistake. The manager suggested a different option and said that initial choice was better and I should not be angry. He also asked if I am from Russia. My friends and dinner improved the situation and we had a nice evening. But I would not recommend to rely on this place.

The food was amazing but we had to wait 2 hours for it. Our table was booked at 8.30pm and we ate at 10.30pm. The staff were very apologetic and knocked all our drinks off the bill, but it was a very long wait. I would give it another shot as the food was that amazing

Service started OK then as it became busy the service seemed to disappear. As an example, our desert was brought out and our main, which had been finished some time before, was still on our table waiting to be cleared away.
I don't mind a hot curry, but it seemed to all be the same heat so some of the flavours were lost.
Have seen some reviews comparing it to be better than Benares. Its a personal choice, but I preferred Benares even if it twice the cost.

Booked a table for two for our anniversary, it was very easy to find from Fenchurch street (7-10 mins maximum). The 3 course set meal is ample for two and great value. The waiters are very attentive and helpful. There are many places to sit inside and out. Toilets are in good shape as well.
We will be back to try the a la carte menu with the children.

Food is always good at Vivek Singh’s restaurants however the service very bad! Being a popular restaurant you’d think they’d be prepared for busy times however we waited more than half an hour to just to get water and order our food. Then the wrong food came and when the right order was brought it was another 45 mins. Then to top it off they charged us for the incorrect food as well (after complaining they later took this off) - had to wait another 30mins to pay and only when we got out of our chairs and proceeded towards the door did they make any attempt to take our payment. Highly disappointed with the service at what supposed to be a top restaurant. Will think twice before going back

A rather average meal I’m sad to say. Sad as I am a huge fan of Indian food and was hoping this would be an alternative to queuing for Dishoom.
It was a Friday night and so it was very noisy. Service was a bit slow but polite. My biggest gripe was that my wife’s chicken biriani was so hot as to be inedible.
That all said it would not put me off returning on a quieter night.

Visited for our anniversary. The venue was crowded and way too noisy for a pleasant dining experience. There was also the constant beat of dance music in the background (which we weren't sure was coming from the venue). I've visited in the past and it was a much better atmosphere. I think the table layout may have changed to get more people in, which I understand from a business perspective but it ruins the atmosphere and dining experience. Perhaps it's better mid-week or for lunch? Disappointing.

Nice atmosphere and good food. Thank you for the birthday cakes - that was a nice touch. What they could improve on is that on every occasion we have come for the set menu, by default they offer the a la carte menu (presumably because it’s more profitable) despite us booking for the set menu. Also, please just give tap water without asking rather than suggesting the expensive mineral option - that’s an old tactic and most restaurants nowadays don’t do that anymore. All in all a very good value meal.

Modern indian food .Took a star off the food as very tasty and beautifully presented but thought the haddock curry could have been better served . Overall very good and affordable , good size portion too . Service pleasant and efficient but wish they would give the menu at the same time as a la carte not on request .a bit cheeky . Would recommend

When we arrived, no one told us there was a reduced menu due to a party booked next door. We were not warned about this change at all until I asked why the menu was different from the one I saw online. The waiter was not very attentive and didn't really know the restricted menu well, questions were asked and the waiter did not really know what the dish came with or whether it was a starter or main portion (the price of the dish was £25 so I expected it to be a main which it was but he asked if I wanted the starter portion which confused me) When my friend called him over to ask for some water during the meal, his first words when he came over were "What's wrong?". She just asked for some water which was really rude considering we each paid quite a lot for the meal, I expected the standard of service to be much better than that. Very disappointed with the whole experience as I was really looking forward to it and I definitely will not go again. The Cinnamon Club was supposed to be next on my list to go but considering the level of service I received here I don't think I will bother going.

This was great, we were a large group and they moved us to a side room which had a view into the kitchen. The food was lovely unfortunately some of our group felt it was a little spicy for them so maybe there could be some guidance on that but personally the food I ate was great and the service was good.

Visited for a 60 birthday celebration. They could not have made us feel more welcome. We had the weekend feast - which was, in large part, stunning.

The service was excellent - just enough to keep everyone happy but too much that we felt pushed or intruded upon.

Food was amazing - definitely not your average indian meal. Only gripe was that, in the end, there was just too much of it and we felt guilty having leftovers - however, problem solved when they boxed it all up for to take home with us.

Now here's the hard bit. However you look at it - it was priced on the high side. Prosseco at £40 .... the meal at close to £40 per person.

Booked through the Open Table app weeks ago, but on arrival reception staff did not appear to have my booking. Starters came out quickly, but mains did not arrive until prompted, to find the kitchen had not prepared our meal. When mains finally arrived, the dishes were not what we ordered. Waiter was fantastic with a couple of extra dishes, dessert and coffee on the house. Disappointing as have been before, and only an attentive waiter brought the evening back to satisfaction.
