    Nice venue but food options were average, lacked flavour, overly priced with small portion sizes. The masala chai was, however, the best part of the meal.

    We had Sunday brunch. Only a handful of tables were occupied and considering the food served I am not surprised! For a high end Indian, food offering was dire! Vegetarian starters which consisted of 2 tiny piece of grilled broccoli, mouthful of corn kernels to share between two - really, when indian food is so famous for vegetarian cuisine. Biryani main was at best mediocre, my local take away serves better. I most definitely will not be returning to Kanishka!

    Good friends gave us a voucher for our 40th wedding anniversary and coupled with my good lady's birthday we had a day of celebration in London. Lunch at Kanishka was the perfect start. Crisp and tasty samosa as starters followed by lamb and chicken curries and finished with pistachio and milk fudge and brownies. The dishes were light, textured and very flavoursome. We have a bottle of white rioja which complimented the food well. I would love to go back to Kanishka.

    The supper club is a fantastic idea. The restaurant was full and there was an air of expectation that was not let down! From the amuse bouche to the palate cleanser and the petit fours the offering was very generous, with the tasting menu similarly well portioned. Next time I will have the flight of wine. Wonderful food, brilliantly organised and served and the benefit of two marvellous chefs circulating after the meal. Excellence and quality.

    Poor service, did not receive a drinks menu during our entire time at the table, I had made it clear at the start that I had a food allergy, which was not taken seriously. We had to repeatedly ask for a waiter, our food was delivered slow and cold. For the value of the entire meal the food, service were not up to scratch. And was overall very dissatisfied at the end.

    We were looking forward so much to this meal and it was a classic case of the overall experience spoiling the food. We were seated downstairs, as the upstairs area was closed, and were extremely cramped. Small space with tables far too close together. Adjacent diners had to move to allow us out to use the bathrooms. Worse, however, was the draft caused by the air-con/front door? My wife was uncomfortably cold and whenever we mentioned it, which we did several times, we were just told they'd done their best to make it warmer. As for the food, we had the tasting menu. The smaller dishes were lovely and cleverly produced. The main curry dishes were, however disappointing, being rather bland and tasteless. All in all, sadly a very disappointing evening.

    Our table of two was booked for 9:00pm on Saturday evening, we had called ahead to advise that we were stuck in traffic so arrived at 9:15pm. We were greeted by friendly staff who promptly sat us in the main area of the restaurant, as well as ourselves there was a table of 8 and one other table of 2, so it was not overly busy at this time. The menu had a nice varied selection of food and once our choices were made the food proceeded to be served in rather quick succession. The food was very tasty, however this was marred by the waiter asking us if we wanted anymore food as the Kitchen was about to close, and at best, we were not even a quarter of the way though our mains? This was shortly followed being asked if we wanted any more drinks as the bar was closing, we still had half a bottle of wine at this stage. As we finished our main courses and sides we were asked immediately if we wanted desserts, at which time we declined, I’m not sure we’d even finished chewing and swallowing our food. As soon as the plates were cleared we were presented with our bill, an obvious indication that they wanted us to leave, we even joked with waiters standing around “did they want to get rid of us so they could get home”, to which we didn’t get a clear response. Whilst we both had a glass of wine left to drink we were told that we had to drink up as they were closing (10:50pm), I pointed out that the table of 8 people were still sat and was informed they had been also told to drink up. This completely ruined what had been a pleasant evening, we had never been informed of any time constraints when booking or arriving. The bill was around £250 for a starter, main, a couple of sides and a bottle of wine, this is rather pricey for OK food but certainly not acceptable to be rushed along. This was my third visit to Kanishka, but this has put me off returning, which is a shame.

    The food was surprisingly tasteless. None of the dishes appeared to have any flavor at all ..which is not typical for Indian cooking. The serving sizes were small and service was indifferent. We left early after leaving most of the food sampled just once and went to another nearby restaurant.

    Received a warm welcome at Kanishka and shown to our table. We chose the Tasting Menu. The amuse bouche with spiced chickpeas caught me in my throat, making me cough, the waiter brought me a chilled mango yoghurt which relieved the tickle. My husband enjoyed his choices Crab Bonda, although he was disappointed with the lack of crab, more enjoyable was the monkfish tail and loved the Lamb curry Rogan josh. Too many spiced dishes for me, but I did enjoy the Wheat Crisp Bubble. About 10 years ago we dined at Benares with a tasting menu.

    An amazing way to spend a birthday meal. The restaurant is beautiful, lots of lovely small touches that made it special. The restaurant team were very friendly, attentive and professional. The food was absolutely stunning. The tandoori Monkfish was our particular favourite 🤩 Birthday wishes and a merry Christmas from Chef Atul Kochhar was a special touch. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this restaurant. Thank you Kanishka team. Merry Christmas.
