Good value for money but the indian food is more catered for the non-indian pallet, the mutter paneer was very chewy and over fried. The starters where lovely and the chutneys to go with it was nice also. The atmosphere and décor is nice and toilets clean. The music was great and we enjoyed singing a lot it it. It wasn't too loud so you can have a decent conversation with your company. The service was good and they were attentive.

"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. Everyone loved the bhindi. Service was well-timed and friendly, beers selection were good."

Authentic Indian cuisine, only a 15-20 minute walk from King's Cross. Delicious and good quality food for a very reasonable price.
The mocktails were really cheap and lovely too!
Will definitely be back next time we're in London.

Really enjoyable dining experience. Excellent food with friendly service. In my group were two of Indian decent. They said it was genuine Indian food, so not an English curry house. Have been before and will continue to go.

Very friendly staff, delicious food, good value for money. I went with a friend and we shared a few different things off the menu. Everything was really nice and fresh. Good selection of vegan meals as well!
Highly recommend but book a table if you want to get in, it gets busy.

Not your usual Indian. Quirky and cosy both at the same time. Some foods were expeptional. My personal favourite were the crispy bhajias and the naan is super soft. Flavours in the curries could do with a bit more kick. Overall it’s worth visiting.

The food is incredible, especially for the price! Had the spicy fish skewer, okra, and the chicken off the bone, as well as poppadom and cutneys and everything me and my friend ate was utterly delicious! Best of all, the whole meal came out to a little over £17 for each of us, a total steal considering how amazing the food was and how much we ordered! The plate sizes are definitely for tapas-style sharing - I would get three or so for two people. Would thoroughly recommend to others and would go again!

Like a lot of people who visit restaurants, I also relied on reviews from other people. We wanted to go to Dishoom in Kings X but when we got there, there were about a 100 people queueing up outside at 8pm.
So we decided to give Delhi Grill a try in Islington. A short Uber there and we decided to all go for the £26 a head set meal which included a drink, and ordered some extra lamb chops on the side.
I would say the food was average at best, no real highlights but edible. Naan bread and rice were nice. We also felt there was enough food for 5 hungry blokes who had a few beers beforehand. My biggest disappointment were the lamb chops. Quite scrappy and not pink inside which is how lamb chops should be. Not a lot of meat on those either so that was disappointing.
We wouldn't go back but there was enough food.

Delhi Grill is one of my favourite restaurants in London. The food is delicious and great value. The place is decorated in a fun Bollywood style and even if it's busy you can still have a good conversation. Service is always good as well and I have never been disappointed by any of the dishes.

Food was delicious however all the meat dishes we had were very over cooked, the meat was dry and chewy. Also the service was awful, the body language and way the waiters spoke was like they couldn’t be bothered, we felt very unwelcome and almost as if we were an annoyance to them just by being there. We shared 3 small plates for our starter and as they cleared these they immediately put our mains down on the table, we really could’ve done with 5 mins or so in between courses. The restaurant wasn’t t busy so there was no need to rush us, terrible pacing of the whole meal. We might even have got another round of drinks between courses but weren’t given the chance to digest the first one!

Great food, very well presented in a quirky fairly modern but very friendly atmosphere. Good Indian food is easy to find if you eat meat as the most popular dishes are always good, however my girlfriend struggles to find good vegetarian curries. She loved her food here though.
