I have eaten at the Delhi Grill on numerous occasions-the food and general ambiance are excellent. In fact, it's one of my all-time favourite Indian restaurants. It's particularly impressive that in this case, quality doesn't come at a price as it also represents excellent value for money. In my opinion, one of the highlights in an area very well served with good quality dining establishments.

The Delhi Grill has some of the best Indian food in Islington. A limited menu where each dish is lovingly and freshly prepared. Be sure to book.

Up there with the best Indian food I’ve ever had - will be our go to for pre-show dinner when at sadlers wells in future -the Delhi Grill (to share) and lamb biryani were to die for - very reasonably priced as well.

Nice place and nice service. The food was perfect.
One thing to know : even the food that is not state as spicy has some spice. Not fire ones but for the little ones, a yogurt or raita dip will be needed if they have a palate not used to spices.

We had a lovely evening at Delhi Grill. Even though my friends were running late that was no problem at all. In fact the services was excellent and very friendly throughout. The Ginger Refresh cocktail was really tasty. As were the starters. Probably the only disappointment was the main courses weren't as tasty as the starters. For example, the meatballs in the Lamb Kofta were too spicy.

Lovely authentic food, generous portions, lovely blend of spices. Meat excellently tender with plenty of sauce. Wonderful aroma whilst waiting for our meals which led to much anticipation. Not posh or fussy which is exactly what we wanted. Got busier after we arrived which added to the atmosphere of good food and drink. Thank you Delhi Grill
