Another great evening. We brought our Son who was visiting along this time, he really enjoyed the food as well.

We also had a lovely chat with Cyrus post-dinner, so a great evening !

Amazing food and lovely staff who were very attentive & treated us very well. My only sadness is that it was very quiet. I suppose it’s a business hotel and not busy on a Friday. Would definitely eat at MR T’s again where ever he is.

Excellent as always. We have eaten at Cafe Spice Namaste several times so welcomed the opportunity to try Cyrus Todiwala's new venture. Similar menu but otherwise a completely different style. The partially open kitchen was interesting. Service was exemplary. The waitress and the manager both took time to talk to us about the food and our previous visits. We would certainly eat here again if we were in the area. The only thing we wouldn't do is have a drink in the hotel bar beforehand. We knew it wouldn't be cheap but almost £20 for two drinks!

It was our wedding anniversary and we love Mr Todiwala’s restaurant at Hilton terminal 5, so we wanted to try his new restaurant. The food was excellent as always and plenty of it. I am a vegetarian and would have appreciated more main menu choice, however there were enough vegetable side dishes to choose from. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant could have had more ambience in the evening as it was very brightly lit.
Highly recommend the restaurant if you enjoy very tasty Indian food.

The location was hard to find if you don’t know the area and there is no where to park, ended up in an ncp 10 mins away but the restaurant, staff and food made up for all that. Starters were so tasty, defo recommend the platters for two and the langoustines. Mains I was expecting to want meaty dishes but fell in love with the bhindi and mushroom jalfrezi, the prawn curry, beef tikka and tarka daal were all so tasty and flavoursome, we asked for all dishes to be fiery hot and it had a good kick. No cocktails but they accommodated with the bar next door. I’m not a lover of Indian desserts so I also got a sticky toffee pudding and ice cream while the rest of the family had kulfi and masala chai. Defo give this place a go if you’re after good tasty Indian food which is different to your average Indian restaurant

Superb meal! I thoroughly enjoyed the Beef Xacutti (hint of star anise?) as did my friend her Prawn Green Thai curry (so big a portion she didn’t finish it all, even though we’d walked 5 miles to the restaurant). The pistachio kulfi was deliciously delicate- yum!

As usual with Mr Todiwala, the choice, quality and taste of the food was excellent. Wines reasonable, service attentive and friendly. The restaurant has a very high ceiling unlike the T5 Mtk's, but sounds have been attenuated by creative use of ceiling reflectors, walls covered in antique pots and another wooden elephant(with baby) in the restaurant create a nice atmosphere.

This is a nice modern Indian restaurant where the food and presentation is much more upscale than your local 'Indian'. Great flavours.

Good to see the spotless open kitchen too.

Im not sure the ambiance quite works though; the room is a bit soulless. The bill demands a slight nicer environment

Really disappointed. I was expecting so much more in the way of quality food and service. Mr Todiwala was a gracious host - very warm and friendly but unfortunately the service let him down. There was a delay with the sides with our main course and the same with our desserts. One of my friends had finished eating hers by the time mine arrived - it was only Kulfi. The duck tikka starter was fatty - could have done with a lot more rendering. Obvious lack of experience in some of the waiting staff which didn’t help either. Sorry Mr T - I really wanted to be blown away. 😏

Easily one of the most disgraceful restaurants in this part of London.

The food and service put the Brand and the amazing decor to shame.

We went in a group of 6, ordered the starter platter, murg makhanai, lamb shank bhoona and Paneer shashlik.

It started with the service where we had to speak to chef directly what the platter had since staff did not know. ( call it chef selection so they can put whatever was not sold)

The starter platter was not hot and the size of chicken was same as what I will feed the birds from the leftover dinner party.

Butter chicken and lamb were nice. Lamb was very tasty indeed.

Dal was not fresh but typical consistency what you get after storing it for a day.

Naan breads were nice.

LEAST VALUE FOR MONEY- is the tag I’d give this place. So if you heading there, don’t expect much and you might as well take someone to serve you.

Booked this for my birthday dinner with 3 others on 21st January. While booking, I informed that it was for a birthday dinner but still it seems that the restaurant staff had no clue that it was a birthday dinner. The food was underwhelming. I was expecting to be blown by food taste given the price and ambiance but everything was too dry. We ordered a Paneer Dish, a Chicken tikka dish and a Salmon dish from the main course. The chicken and paneer was extremely dry. Normally any restaurant would bring a small cake if they know that the diner is celebrating his/her b'day on the day but only after we ordered a dessert they simply wrote happy b'day on the dessert we ordered and paid for.

You get much better food at other Indian restaurants at much lower price like Chai Ki & Dishoom. I was expecting this to be at par with Gymkhana in terms of food taste but unfortunately it failed to deliver anything close. At the end we after leaving the restaurant, We realized that we ordered two garlic chiili naans but were served only one and were charged for two.

We are local and wanted to try this out for our anniversary. We were not disappointed. The staff wee excellent and really made us feel at home. We have a 3 month old and a 2.5 year old so we found it really buggy and family friendly too. Dosa was really good, as was the aubergine curry. We really appreciated the kind gestures from the staff to celebrate our anniversary too. We will be back!

Had a lovely lunch here on Friday which was just a few days after they opened. I’ve only marked them down on ambience because it was quiet. Food was excellent and service was very good. Definitely recommend.
