                                              Very good value lunch menu, with plenty of choice. Everything was really tasty, with careful spicing to enhance flavour, not just give heat. Friendly service and a well dressed table made the experience very pleasant.

                                              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.

                                              Wonderful food in a very relaxed setting. Outstanding range of taster menus, so everyone was happy. Service was over attentive and felt intrusive.

                                              Love the food at Atul Kochhar and eaten many times at his restaurants. We opted for the taster menu and for the price found it not very exciting, pricey and wished we had eaten from the main menu instead!

                                              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.

                                              Food was unique and excellent. Waiters were friendly and helpful, however it was difficult to understand one waiter , who was very quiet. Overall a very good experience.

                                              Great food a treat and reason to visit Amersham. Because the traditional roast can be tiresome. Well done.

                                              Food was ok. A place that serves genuine Indian dishes as opposed to Nepalese / Bangladeshi owned restaurants in the local area. Staff were rough and not very polite, especially on arrival. We were greeted by a lady who seemed like she wanted to know what time our booking was for only to then abruptly be told that she’ll be ‘with us in a moment’ - the level of hospitality leaves a lot to be desired!

                                              Staff were friendly and attentive but not overbearing. The food was outstanding (we had the tasting menu with accompanying wine flight) which was out of this world! Loved the whole experience and the head chef even came out to say hello. Really cosy restaurant with relaxed atmosphere.

                                              The crown is a lovely old property. The rear dining room is not as nice as the front space bring darker and badly lit. It really needs some softer lighting and dimmers that work - the levels went up and down mysteriously all night! Really nice atmosphere overall and we were given plenty of time, so it was nice not to rush. Starter of aubergine was tasty if not special. Octopus was poor - onion rings on top gave impression of having been made hours before. Sea bass main was disappointing. The suave had no oomph, stringhopper was just a bland rice noodle cake. Fish was well cooked but this isn't an interesting dish. Lamb shank biryani saved the day - fragrant and generous portion. Saag paneer brought nothing. We spent £120 on 2 courses with a side and naan. No alcohol or desert. It was a nice evening and good hospitality which is what counts. We were hoping for some interesting spicing, new combinations or at least elegant execution, and the food disappointed on the whole. I'm glad to have tried it but won't go back.

                                              Lovely restaurant, very good food and excellent service in beautiful old coaching inn. Very busy and we suffered a little in terms of speed of service because there was a large family party dining at the same time but it’s clearly very popular and that is always a good sign.

                                              Lovely meal but the service was so fast we felt rushed. We had the tasting menu which is well worth it and highly recommended. However at one point we had to ask for a break as things came out one after the other. Dishes were removed almost as soon as the last person put their cutlery down. No explanations of what you were getting - it just didn’t match the atmosphere and the quality. Saying all that the whole team were friendly - and wonderful to one of our party who has dietary requirements that name at changes to the set menu. They could not have been more accommodating. Don’t let this put you off - just ask for pauses between courses -

                                              We both had the butter chicken. The sauce tasted a bit synthetic. Small rice portion. The Dahl was good, as was the calamari starter. Just a bit disappointed with the main. We always used to get complimentary popadoms, but not this time.

                                              Interesting modern Indian food.. we had the taster menu.. all delicious except we felt the lamb chop was slightly over cooked and the desert was not to our taste at all… but maybe that’s personal.service excellent.. ambience ok but it’s a nice pub essentially.. £200 for 2..half a bottle of wine.. no coffee.. so quite pricey..

                                              This is one of our favourite places to eat. The service and food is always fantastic and faultless. Our Mother’s Day celebration was wonderful until it was disturbed by screaming toddlers! Such a shame as it put a dampener on what would have been an excellent luncheon.

                                              The food was incredible, you definitely pay for what you get. The service could have been better, attention to detail.
