    I went to the Delhi Grill with four friends visiting from Austria who don't have much access to good Indian curry in Vienna. We all enjoyed the atmosphere/ambience, great service and really tasty food. We particularly liked their big choice of soft drinks and 'mocktails'.

    Food, service, ambience were all great. We loved the mixed grill. Only minor issue is that the delicious masala tea came in a really small glass which is pricey for the size. We will still come again in the future but won't have the tea.

    As ever the food in the Delhi Grill was delicious and the service was good. However, having booked a New Year’s Eve meal at 9pm we were shocked to be told at 9.55pm that the restaurant was closing at 10. The booking app said we would have 1.5 hours for four people (or 1.45 hours for more than 4). I even rang the restaurant (as we reduced from 5 to 4 people) so surely then they could have told me ? We ended the meal surrounded by tables piled high with chairs and waiters sweeping and clearing all around us. Not condusive to the best of New Year’s Eves. We should have been told !

    Really lovely place and will definitely be back. Lovely food and vibe. The staff could maybe keep eyes on customers a bit more as it was hard to get someone’s eye at any stage. Also, some training on allergens would be a very good idea. The staff member I spoke to was not clued in which always creates a bit of worry. He went and found the info which was appreciated but maybe a bit of staff training would go a long way

    The service was very poor. A simple request to have papadums straight away whilst we selected the rest of our order was refused, as it is more convenient for the staff to enter the whole order at once. How hard can it be to add the papadums in, once the full order is taken? Who are we there to please, the customers or the waiters? Then we were expected to eat our main course with the same dirty plates and cutlery as the starters, all covered in chutneys which would spoil the flavour of the main course. The slightly rude waiter said he was willing to give us new plates (though he didn't sound very happy about it) but we must keep our dirty knives and forks. Making us feel like we were serving him! It's not cheap, either. That kind of attitude might be got away with in a cheap cafe, but this is not right. In fact, even the cheapest workmen's cafes serving egg and chips always offer fresh cutlery for each course. Also the music level was too high. We asked for it to be turned down but it was still too high and so we could not hear ourselves. The proprietors seem to think a good restaurant is a loud, noisy restaurant! Not true. The food itself was very good, but I would hesitate to come back as everything else was just...wrong.

    I visited this restaurant as it was one of best Indian recommendations in TimeOut. However, I was disappointed. It was an average Indian restaurant in London but definitely not one of the best as TimeOut says. For a person with no experience of the real flavours of North Indian food, this might impress them but I found the flavours and textures not quite there in this restaurant. The menu was pleasantly a short one, giving one an impression the restaurant specialises in food from a certain part of India. However, if the chefs aren’t able to reproduce the flavours and textures of North Indian food, of which they are supposed to be experts, I will seriously doubt the origins and skills of the chef. We ordered cocktails which were just ok. For food we ordered pav bhaji, fish fry, chicken curry and chilli prawns. All of them were just mediocre and the dishes did not taste as they were supposed to.

    Fabulous meal to celebrate my birthday. Tandoori paneer, pani puri and veg samosas to start were all very good. We chose Dhaba curries as our main dishes - both the lamb and chicken had a depth of flavour, with subtle and layered spicing.
