Lovely restaurant with delicious food. Just such a shame that due to the ongoing pandemic situation there was only one other couple dining and several desserts were off the menu. But we thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. We often go to Sindhu in Marlow as we love Atul Kochhar’s unique food.

Foods were very delicious, service was great. Outside sitting is not the best in London. It was a birthday celebration but we did not get anything as they promised. Prices are very high even for Mayfair.

First of all the staff were delightful! Phoebe the hostess was attentive, charming and professional. The waiters were engaging and polite. The atmosphere and ambience was just what we were looking for as a couple having dinner. The food is wonderfully prepared and the menu has something for anyone who enjoys Indian cuisine. The only thing was the service can be slow during busy hours so be prepared to eat across 2.5 hours. But overall we got what we wanted and left very happy.

Went with my boyfriend for our anniversary dinner. The first thing we commented on was how amazing the food smelt before we had even eaten anything. The food exceeded our expectations, which were already high. Staff were attentive and helpful without being intrusive. A truly wonderful dining experience. Can't recommend this place enough.

Booked last minute Saturday lunch. Restaurant was really beautiful, the only concern soap was finished in ladies bathroom and haven’t been noticed to refill during my whole experience. Considering it’s Covid times I think that’s such an essential minus.
The service upstairs was exceptional, and very welcoming. Big disappointment was slow kitchen service, I ordered a starter (waited at least 15-20min for cold starter), had some snacks ordered that I hoped to get it between starter and main, but it arrived together with a main after another 25min waiting since I finished my starter, and at that point I didn’t know where to start and what to eat first. If I eat main - snack with bread will get cold, if I eat snack - main will get cold. Once all finished waited at least another 15 min to get coffee and desert. There were probably 3-4 tables with orders at that time considering it’s big restaurant it really felt extremely slow. The whole food was nice, just naan bread tasted really uncooked (first time tasted it so badly made).

We had booked outside but asked to be moved inside as the table wasn’t best located for a Michelin star experience. Phoebe the maitre de was outstandingly helpful - seating the 4 of us at the bar (which is lovely) and then offering us a table downstairs when another party didn’t show. She couldn’t have been more helpful! THANKYOU! Cocktails, ambience, decor and food were all amazing. We had the best night and would definitely return next time we are in London!
