DHABA a word that comes to our mind when we talk about tasty, mouth-watering and authentic Indian food. A vast network of roads connects India. It forms the economic background of India as a passenger and commercial traffic moves along the well-laid tarmac roads. Like civilisations have evolved over time along the banks of rivers: along the highways buzzing with traffic activity, Dhabas have mushroomed. They have influenced and added a dimension to the socio-economic status and culture of our society. We at Social Dhaba have attempted to make you feel at home as in a Dhaba albeit in a more social environment set in a chic and contemporary ambience.

Apart from service, rest was fine . We enjoyed ourselves being in a large party of our own, it was could have got bit noisy, but nobody complained. Atmosphere was generally nice and welcoming. Kind and friendly serving staff group , but it was busy and they could have done with couple more waiters. Starters were nicely done.

Food has deteriorated in quality since opening and service was dishevelled today. A shame as they got off to a good start and Hatch End needs a concept like this...but done much better than our experience today.

Went there for mum's bday lunch. Had palak patta chaat for starters and to my horror had a hair in it. Upon noticing it was replaced with fresh plate. Usually restaurants take it off the bill as its their mistake but it was on my bill(no regrets just observation). Service was very good and polite. Had veg tawa subji and family naan which were yummiest. Overall food taste is great. Ambiance is good. Had a noisy start because of flushing noise from coffee machine. The food is pricy and service charge on top makes it pricier.

Not great service, slow and not that professional. Food was ok but kebabs were raw so had to send them back and we all ended up with bad stomachs! Decor is nice but not good value and will not be going back

Great place to eat and reasonably priced food and drinks.
Lunch 5 people with a couple of alcoholic drinks for just under £200.
Big tables designed for groups and great customer service. Lots of people asking if we needed anything, Particularly Carmen
Restaurant has a great ambience and lots of little touches, from plates and cutlery to the bronze water pitcher and glasses and truly amazing decor.
Hundred % recommend this place.

Didn't quite live up to expectation. Everything was great except for the food. I hope these are just minor teething problems . Although we only had a few starters, the meat was over cooked. The veg starters however were delicious.

Booking for five at 8.30. Got told at 8.45 that the table would not be ready till 9.30.
To there credit they offered a free drink at the bar. Didn’t eat or. Have a drink so please ignore the food rating.
Pretty sloppy for a upmarket looking restaurant.
