Yes, my only criticism is that some of your main dishes are quite expensive ranging from £17-£25 which is too much for not generous portions. For that price it’s one main each and go home still hungry, unless your order a few sides and starters. Which starts getting too expensive. It doesn’t feel value for money, which is the only thing stopping me from giving you a 5.

Skilfully packed with tables to accommodate demand. Luckily it is so noisy that only your close (and I mean CLOSE) neighbours can hear your stories. DELICIOUS FOOD!!!

Over priced and small portions. Had to remind staff of orders and was told table needed to be vacated in 1 hour 30mins. Wouldn’t go again. Tea was served luke warm too.

Diner was amazing - some of the best Indian food I’ve had! If you go after 9pm there a special menu that gets you two courses for £21. Would recommend the potato cakes and paneer curry!

Very lovely meal - the pre-theatre menu was great value for money, I would definitely recommend the twice cooked pork.

Busy Covent Garden restaurant. Service lacking, left a long time between being seated and ordering. Food came quickly and food relatively tasty. Bill was high, not including service, and we only had one drink each. Let down by lack of warm welcome and perfunctory service throughout.

The waiter was hilarious and attentive, we only loved one dish which was the prawns but all round relatively tasty food. Only big down side was the portions sizes but I guess that’s expected in a restaurant like this. Overall lovely restaurant!

We mostly had a wonderful time and the food was delicious. However, we went for the set menu that is advertised in some places as being a pre-theatre menu- we waited for 15 minutes to be served and then had to wait for half an hour for our mains, whilst the couple next to us who ordered when we first sat down left 30 minutes before we did (and had all their three courses within 10 minutes of finishing the other course). This meant we had to rush to the theatre, whilst some staff were apologetic they had no explanation and said it does not usually take this long. Was a sad way to end what had started off as a delightful culinary experience.

The place was a bit too noisy, couldn’t really speak which is a shame in a restaurant.
It was a bit difficult to understand the menu so we ordered a bit randomly but the food was really nice and tasty.
Careful also because the food is overall quite spicy so be aware.
Decoration really nice and colorful!
Food came really quick!

went for a family birthday meal on a Saturday night. The restaurant was buzzing and busy. We had a table upstairs which was perfect (quieter) The service was outstanding and the two ladies looked after us so well. Food arrived within perfect timing not to quick and thank God not too long. Chaats were delicious! Perfect blend of sweet savoury and spicy. The shepherds pie was good, spicy though. Would recommend the cod which was perfectly cooked and spiced. For dessserts the creme brûlée and kulfi were delicious.

Whilst we enjoyed the food, and thought the menu well planned and great options, despite booking a table, we were placed in the corner by a bar entrance where there was not enough room for two people to sit without them being hit by the bar and waiting staff every time they went in to the bar area which was disappointing as non-bookings for the same size ahead of us were placed in a much more favourable location. The service left something to be desired which really detracted from the enjoyment of the meal. It took 30 minutes from when we arrived to an order for drinks to be taken (likely due to our out of the way location) and food was taken at the same time. When it came to pay our bill was wrong and took some time to resolve as well.
All in all I would expect better service from a central London restaurant for pre-booked table.

Delicious quality modern Indian food. All the chaats we tried are worth recommending. But not a place for traditional tastes, paneer butter masala was average at best. Mango lassi is unfortunately pre-made, no no sugar option. Bit loud and hectic but not worse than most of other places in central London.

Lovely food, very buzzy atmosphere, prompt service, although overall a bit rushed and we were asked to vacate the table as they had a queue at the door, but to be fair we'd virtually finished (in there approx 1 hour) . Although we weren't offered a coffee at the end of our meal. Overall, I'd go again as the food was great.

Service was very slow, we got our starter’s quickly but then had to wait nearly 40 mins for the main dish. The portions were small and unfortunately not much flavour .
Not a restaurant to return too,
Overall not good value .
