    Diverse and tempting menu did not disappoint. Topped off by great guidance on choices by the owner led to a delightful meal. Even papadam and naan were notable, as was a surprisingly full bar and wine list. Super.

    Having heard about Ritu, I decided to have lunch there on the way back from a meeting. I was pleasantly surprised. Nice décor and ambience and tastefully furnished. I was greeted by the truly wonderful Raisa with a beautiful smile. I was given the main menu and lunch menu. I choose the lunch menu plus an additional dish from the main menu. The Swiss Chard Chaat was fresh and healthy, and a perfect starter. The Beetroot Kofta was exquisite, and very very tasty. The Spinach Daal was exceptional. The paneer was very nice but could have been a little more flavoursome. The food arrived on time and was so good I've been wanting to return everyday. What made the experience even more enjoyable was the service provided by Raisa. She was warm friendly, polite, enthusiastic and extremely respectful. A perfect hostess. I congratulated her one her service. Thast the kind of service one expects in a fine dining establishment. And another reason to visit again which I hope will be sooner than later. Thankyou

    I recently visited the restaurant to celebrate my anniversary as well as the auspicious festival of Diwali. Having heard such delightful praises about the food and service, it was a preferred choice. To be astonishment, the overall dining experience was extremely awful. My partner and I ordered the Cheese Masala Kulcha which was forgotten and then upon our follow up, we were provided by a concoction by the manager, Mr. Frances. Additionally, the Navratan Korma was highly undercooked. Consequently, the above lower standard food resulted in severe health issues for me and my partner. This has resulted in a bad taste associated with the restaurant and our dining experience. Further, this experience has sparked a negative light across our celebrations hence I would like to raise my concerns with your prestigious team. I would request you to look into the matter

    First time visiting Ritu - The welcome was warm the food and drinks were great! We tried a wide selection of things (gunpowder prawns and chicken biryani were a fave!) The only thing letting this restaurant down was the speed of service we waited a while to be asked to order a drink so when we did order we ordered food and drinks together as we had cocktails we then had to wait for a bit again but they were worth it. The food came out nice and hot with fantastic presentation on some of the dishes. Everything was light and fresh. NB: If you are warned it is spicy - it is very spicy! As it was Diwali we were treated to some sweets at the end of our meal on the house which was a nice touch! Would 100% recommend this restaurant even though I would rather keep this little gem to myself - I foresee difficulty in booking here in the future!

    I really wanted a great local restaurant and in Ritu I have it, will be back 100%. Really nice relaxed place, great food and service. I really could not fault it at all. Their take on butter chicken is just amazing, bread also great, nothing dissapointing.

    Really nice area and cant fault the taste of the food, but I am a stickler for service and it was below my standards. I ordered Monkfish and was served Salmon, when I questioned it I was told that they stopped selling Monkfish. Why was I not told this when ordering? The manager advised its the waitress fault and told me she is only part time and doesn't know the menu well yet. My wife's main arrived 15 minutes after mine and was told it was not processed with order, the manager is clearly not from a hospitality background as he didn't have much to say and unable to resolve the issue in a timely manner, some communication issues also. I won't be going back anytime soon purely based on the service.

    This was our second visit to Ritu and we left with nothing but praise for the taste and quality of all the dishes. Their Dahl is perfect and always accompanies rice and main dishes so well. This time we had duck and spicy prawns for mains, both delightful. Our starter was a mushroom chaat. Plain naan and raita completed our choices. We have booked our next visit and hope hope that if you go, you will be as happy as we have been.

    One of the nicest modern Indian restaurants in London. A beautiful setting and an outstanding menu of flavoursome ingenious cuisine. The service level is also excellent with Mr Marku recommending certain tasteful dishes and a lovely Indian whiskey. Keep up the good work and we will definitely be seeing you again soon.
