Consistently excellent and very good again on a Friday. Menu limited but what they do they do well and it tick a lot of boxes for me!

Excellent food, a delicate hand in the spicing and very tender meat that had clearly just been cooked, not left to sit ‘warming’ in the sauce. We’ll definitely be back.

Always excellent food at the Delhi Grill. The service has always been good, and recently has become even better with friendly, attentive staff and swift service. Unusually good wine list for an Indian restaurant. Such good value too. Highly recommended.

The food was delicious, authentic and affordable. I wanted to eat everything. It has such a great range of food. I'm an Indian who's happy to have found an authentic local indian to be my regular comfort food place.

Friendly staff. They got my order wrong but were quick to rectify it. The food was delicious, one of the most tender chicken tikkas I've had. I'm going again this Saturday.

Really good experience all in all. The sharing platter gives a good variety of the menu and there's plenty of food for everyone. Service was top class, friendly staff.

The food was really good but not exceptional, the bottle of malbec very average, the ambience was ok although we were seated near the window facing the bags full of trash and near the door, not the best place in the restaurant. The staff was friendly. Good value for money but we’d try some other place next time

Been here a few times and really rate the food. This time however our starters weren’t great but mains were. Service was lacking a bit considering we were there when they opened for the evening (5.30) and there were no other customers but at least 2 members of waiting staff around, both more interested in looking at their phones. Would still go again though!

Disappointing. Saag aloo was bland and the paneer dry. Nice restaurant and good service though.

I booked a Christmas curry here in December for me and 3 friends, but we were all unfortunately underwhelmed by the quality of food. The curries lacked flavour and the starters were all distinctly average.
The staff were all incredibly friendly, and the food arrived quickly, but unfortunately our experience was disappointing and I could not recommend this restaurant.

We ordered the set menu for 4 at our evening meal. Exceptional quality and quantity of food for the price. And the £4 per person supplement for alcohol (a bottle of wine of our choice) was also great value

Attentive service, good atmosphere, great food at reasonable prices. I visit the Delhi Grill fairly often and its consistently good. Particularly like the lamb biryani with raita.

This was my second visit to Delhi Grill and sadly it seems to have gone down hill a bit. I love the idea, small manageable menu moving away from the tried curry house 4 page menu full of slop! But, it wasn't very good the railway lamb had very little lamb and the lamb chops were dry. We also had a chicken makahani which was also pretty low on chichen.
Service was swift and professional and there's a nice buzz to the place. In short, good place to eat with friends if you aren't too bothered about the food. If you are go and queue at Dishoom which never seems to disappoint.
Come on guys, sort it out..

Excellent food. A lot of the dishes are “standard” curry house fare, but done really well so you can see why they are classics. Good quality ingredients and well spiced. Highly recommend.

Delhi grill has a short menu which is not over complicated slowing them to deliver superb quality food each time. Great value and a real local neighbourhood modern Indian treasure.

This place is my new fave for a curry. Fantastic it is. It’s a bit noisy if it’s full with groups (but where isn’t?) but it all adds to the atmosphere. The ice cream with Indian doughnuts is literally the best thing ever invented. Ever. Already booked for my birthday in a month’s time.
