    We went for an early dinner and the staff were fantastic. They even brought out a special dessert at the end for our celebration. The food is terrific and quite authentic upscale Indian food with lots of seafood. Finally they have an amazing selection of wines. Price is not for the faint of heart but otherwise, check them out!

    Outstanding food. I’m of Indian origin and I can assure you that the flavours are unbelievable. Service was even better. Wine selection is great and the sommelier was knowledgeable. Been meaning to try this place for a while and I’m glad I did. Would highly recommend the seafood ‘Thali’ and the Venison starters. Komal and Shubam took care of me and went above and beyond.

    Came here with my best friend as our first Michelin star restaurant and had the best dining experience! Did the tasting menu and every course was amazing, Chelsea was a great server and Singh was so kind and gave us some beautiful scarves when we left. Will definitely be coming back the next time we are in London!

    Really great meal. Food was very very tasty, service was extremely friendly. Nice buzz in the restaurant, great bar area for cocktails. We had Halibut, and Chicken Makhani for mains- both perfect. Nice selection of poppadoms to start.
