About

Gunpowder is a home-style Indian kitchen. Our menu takes inspiration from family recipes, and the vibrant, confident flavours of home cooking.

We offer Pre Theatre and fixed feast menus for small and large groups. Our private dining rooms are available for hire through the week.

We take reservations for lunch and dinner online, for parties up to 4.

Lamb chops are very nice, but on the pricey size but very flavoursome.

Very tasty food but very pricey!

The lamb chops were delicious with the lamb cooked to perfection.

Prawns didnt need to be butterflies as made them harder to eat.

Overall amazing taste but you will feel it on your wallet!

A fantastic date night! The location is beautiful and the food is delicious. The staff couldn’t have been more attentive. Thank you very much for a great evening.

I highly recommend the broccoli!

Non traditional Indian restaurant with limited menu (in a good way). Everything was terrific: service was pleasant, very attentive and friendly. Food and drinks came out quickly and every dish was wonderful. Beautiful room.

Been once before (to Spitalfields branch) and raved about the food to so many people, it had a lot to live up to in my mind. Didn't disappoint. Everything was very good or excellent. Hopefully, will be back.

Good food, have been there now 3 times and have tried most of the things. My favourites are oysters, lamb chops, okra and bread pudding with an old monk shot.

Aaloo chat is a bit sweet but ask for a green coriander chutney to balance the flavour.

Buzzy and not a place for a date but more a group of friends to enjoy fine food and drink

The food was excellent but portions were not generous and the lamb chops were expensive
for what they were, but delicious. The menu could benefit with more vegetables dishes.
Would I go again absolutely but at an earlier time as our table was 2pm and the kitchen closes at 3pm.

The food is excellent, but beware not to over order, as we did, because some dishes are very different sizes from others. It took a long time to get any service upstairs but it was fine once they got going. Generally a good experience.

Service was quick and efficient but the quality of the food didnt suffer because of it. The softshell crab, venison dumplings and lamb chops were exceptional

We had a great night at Gunpowder, Tower Bridge. Food was amazing, really nice atmosphere in the restaurant, and the service was great. We were a party of 4 and between us we tried most of the dishes off the menu - and there wasn't a bad dish among them. Thoroughly enjoyable night and would definitely go back.

Delicious food. Very good value for the quality. Professional service. Super popular and busy so you must book ahead. But not a place for a chat - it was packed and loud and, sadly, this detracted from the experience quite a bit. We'll definitely visit again to try more dishes but hopefully without the din.

I enjoyed the food here, however, the service was really bad.

The food came before the drinks, the plates were cold, the rice came late, the staff forgot to bring the dessert and only half the table was cleared before I had to ask to get the rest of it cleared. I understand the restaurant was busy but I must have got up from my table about 5 times to ask the staff to resolve all these issues. Not the best experience, especially when the food is quite pricey, the overall experience was not good.

Really nice, recommend the venison donut and the lamb chops. We were tucked away in a corner booth which was slightly cold so can't really comment on the ambience, but will definitely return or try the Spitalfields one.

I have been there 4 times and this was the first time the food was not good at all, it was soggy, cold too much oil did not feel fresh. The steak had hard fat pieces...

There was no one to clear the tables knowing the tables are small, it felt congested and not a good environment.

Would not recommend anyone to go there again.

Staff great, really friendly and attentive. The prices felt a bit too high for the food/restaurant for me, but it's in a fairly touristy area, so that might explain it.
