Delicious food and drinks, but I’d say the service could be improved. We were sat in a corner table and struggled to get attention - especially given that it wasn’t too busy

Food was very good - great veggie options and decent portion sizes - but 90mins is far too rushed and we were hurried a fair bit.

And the waiter been very unfriendly face too ,i do not want to argue there .because I go there for enjoy ,not for angry!but really feel been treat not fair ,I do not owe your money .I will pay my bill, should not been treat the customer differently.

1.5 hours to have a meal and drink is ambitious...! Barely time to settle in and catch up. 2 hours is a bit more considerate.

The cocktails were too strong and sugary for £9 each.

The chilli paneer and sesame chicken sauces tasted identical.

The waiters and staff were good though, helped switch on the heaters and served everything on time. Efficient staff.

Great food and lovely, friendly staff! Shoutout to Hersh for making us feel extra welcome and accommodated! The outside set up is very sweet with the lights and you can keep warm thanks to the flame heaters! Will definitely be back again! Thank you!

The food was great. Service was fine, even though we had to wait 40 minutes for our mains to arrive. There seemed to be a large group (around 17-20) behind us, who all knew the manager, she greeted them with a hug. They were extremely loud, and ignorant of the people around them, some who may have health conditions. There was also no 2 metre rule, as they all sat very closely together and behind us. All this goes against Covid rules, we did not feel safe. Disappointed.

Started off well with the starters, but mains were average. Butter chicken was very below average but the garlic naans were superb. Cocktail range was limited but they were nice

The starters were great but that’s as far as it goes. Maybe because it was after lockdown but the we waited longer than 30 minutes after being seated to be asked what we want to order even after we ate our starter we waited very long for our main which wasn’t great I ordered there special curry and and my partner ordered the masala it was very bland and was not tasty. I enjoyed the starter and cocktail. Lastly the people around us we’re acting very anti social and singing very obnoxiously I could t hear my partner speak even after complaining it continued. I will not be returned

Very loud and hard to hear yourself speak
Not following social distancing at a time where london is in tier 2, didn’t feel safe as a customer. The management need to appreciate that there are people with health conditions coming to the restaurant with the trust that safety measures would be taken, this was disappointingly taken very casually.

The food, the service, ambience was fantasic. Could not fault the waiter, he was exceptional, very curtious, acknowledged everything, was fast and accurate. Shame the social distancing was a bit lax, we were sat too close to the tables on either side, maybe it was just where we were sat at the back on the left. But still a great night out.

We went to eat here for my husbands birthday. The place looks very stylish and with covid We felt very safe. They have a one way system and everyone wears masks while walking around. The tables are all distanced. Sit in a booth if you get a chance! The cocktails were amazing! The bar tender was lovely! Waiter was very attentive and was always there when we had questions/ needed to order. The food was amazing! We did over order as couldn’t decide what to eat but means dinner for the next day was sorted for us! Food was AMAZING! I left super full and couldn’t wait to go back!! Would highly recommend it!!!

The music was loud sounded like classical music. Really not the right ambience. I expected funky music as before but not sure what music they were playing. Food was plentiful & good value. Tilapia starter was perfectly cooked & delicious. Only disappointment was that the chicken korma was quite sweet & had sugar added to it, some granules undissolved. We didn’t eat it. We mentioned it to the waitress but she didn’t offer to exchange for another dish or a refund. We still paid for it.

My first thought as I walked in was I want to leave! It was the noisiest restaurant I have ever been in, plus it had giant screens showing football.(Not necessary during an evening meal in my opinion) If I had walked in without booking, I most definitely would not have booked a table. The staff were very friendly but the service was very slow. My friends enjoyed their food, mine was ok. With regards to Covid, apart from a separate Entrance & Exit, it could have been as normal times, ie: there were no screens between tables & there were 2 large parties of people seated nearby us. It was so noisy, we struggled to hear each other speaking. I would not return here. My ears were ringing for a long time after leaving the restaurant!

Sat in the garden area. Ok. However slow with service, taking orders for drinks and delivery of drinks and food. Food was good when received. Tiger wings are outstanding
