    We went on Fathers Day and had expected to be able to have the Fathers Day menu (there were no time restraints on the website). So we were disappointed to be told it had only been available for lunch bookings. Despite this the food was lovely and the staff we very attentive and sympathetic to our 11 month old causing chaos!

    The quality and taste of the food was very underwhelming. The seekh kebab starter was ok. The chicken tikka starter was dry and tough to cut through. The main course of chicken tikka was bland and lacked any real flavour. Overall I would not recommend this restaurant as the quality of the food does not correlate to the price and reputation of the chef.

    Visited for my birthday. Excellent food and service. Couldn’t fault either. Having visited the sister restaurant in Marlow a couple of years ago we did not expect the restaurant to look like a pub seating area. A few simple touches, table linen and better chairs could really lift this into a truly outstanding restaurant. Have recommended the restaurant to friends but have pointed out the basic interior so they’re not as surprised as we were.

    The tasting menu was great, loved the sauce flavoured with coconut with the salmon. The duck was excellent. The black daal with the main course was so creamy and so soft as it had been cooked for a long time. The chocolate surprise had a nice combination of textures

    Visiting Amersham for a couple of nights and thought we would give Hawkyns’s a try. Honestly was hoping for a lot more for the price range. I couldn’t say anything was bad, but overall pretty unimaginative. Scallop starter was ok, Lamb rump main again ok. All cooked well, but just not that standout. Much better available if you love Indian food. Very glad we didn’t opt for the tasting menu.

    Really disappointed overall. Food was nothing special, it was very bland and lukewarm. The naan were very dry, no butter, they were more like poppadoms. We asked for more chutney which never came yet the restaurant staff were clearing plates as soon as one person had finished. We'd booked for a birthday, which was in the booking comments, every other restaurant we visit for a birthday we always get a small dessert with a candle for the birthday person, we got nothing. Sadly it was a big let down having been looking forward to having a special meal.

    What a beautiful evening. We booked an outdoor table on the spur of the moment and arrived to find a table in the most beautiful setting. Service was warm, friendly and attentive and the food was truly incredible. The butter chicken is incredible and the lamb biryani was outstanding, with a crisp pastry top and melt in the mouth chunks of lamb. Oh and I’ll be dreaming about the black lentil dahl. Faultless. We’ll definitely be back!

    It was my birthday and daughter back from Uni. Asked for sparkling water and didn't arrive. Had to find someone to order drinks. The food was great. Offered dessert menu. Didn't arrive had to ask. Asked for bill, didn't arrive had to ask again. Sparkling water was on the bill which we never got. My wife is disabled with a stick and had to use the gents. A customer came in when she was there which gave my wife a shock.

    This was high cuisine at its best with subtle spicing for the Indian dishes. We were welcomed and the waiters ensured that they gave individual attention to all diners, checking out if everything was satisfactory without being intrusive. Waiting times were well considered, so food was presented at a leisurely and apt pace. A soft, pleasant environment, possibly could do with some refreshing of the decor including floor.

    All four of us thoroughly enjoyed the Tasting Menu with wine with each course. Every dish arrived in timely fashion, not too slow and not too quick. The Crisp Wheat Bubble(Dahi Puri), the first item was a spectacular start and each course brought different flavours and textures. The Halibut was another superb dish among so many. The only criticism that we could make was an unusual one, the Beef main course was too much for us all. We would have been happier to have had half the size. Meal finished with the smashing Chocolate Surprise.

    We were a group of six and all enjoyed exceptional food and service. Advice received regarding our choices was great and generally very good service. We had a starter and a main each and 5 side dishes, 2 portions of rice (2 had biryani) and 3 breads. We all were very full by the end of it and had enough left over for a couple of doggy bags. There was nothing that disappointed, the quality of food and flavours were exceptional and we will definitely be returning.

    Delicious dishes of food. Well spiced and bags of flavour without being too hot or overpowering. Freshest popadoms we've ever had. Black lentils are a must and can highly recommend the lamb biryani and the butter chicken.
