We went for a birthday celebration and the restaurant lived up to expectations. The staff are friendly and helpful and unobtrusive. The food was really good. The portions were generous and well presented. We all had a great evening.

Fabulous meal. Described as ‘the best meal I’ve had in a long time’. 4 course tasting menu perfect value for money and the food itself was absolutely stunning. The service was also fantastic. Would highly recommend this restaurant for a date, or special occasion or a nice meal with family.

First time and was happy to see a alot of mains could be ordered as starters to try alot of different tastes . samosas were tasty abet heavy lamb chops were meaty and succulent butter chicken with nice fluffy rice yummy. The only disappointing dish was the roast broccoli which was covered in a heavy paste and felt "mealy" in the mouth. The cheese naan was divine.

I made a reservation online for a birthday lunch and added a note stating so. Received an email which said I may receive a phone call to confirm bookings. Which I did not so I just called the restaurant to confirm my reservation (as it was 1st time booking online, normally I call restaurants) and also to confirm if they could add a small birthday message with the dessert we will order. The lady who answered the phone spoke to me like I was an idiot and was asking for something strange and I should have known this (it was the first time I was going to this restaurant, the whole reason I called to confirm) said "yes we do that anyway". On the day the desset came and it was without the birthday message. I will not be going there again nor will be recommending this to anyone. The way I was spoke to on the phone really put me off but it was already too late for me to cancel and book somewhere else. Food was average but all the sweet stuff (like mango lassi and desserts were) extremely sweet. There are many other places where one will be able find much tastier food and more importantly a polite service.

Kahani takes Indian cuisine to a whole new level. The food is flavorful and creative. It’s obvious they use the finest ingredients. The service is excellent and enjoyable. The only comment I have is that I am always disappointed with the quality of the cocktails. They are small and don’t have the same care taken when making them as they do with food. This is a shame because great mixology would just heighten the experience hugely. I also found their wine by the glass very expensive and disappointed in the quality. But seriously this place is amazing and we will be back!

What a great discovery Kahani turned out to be! Very nice staff, wondeful food and a great ambiance. I'd rather keep this little gem to myself, but that wouldn't be fair to the restaurant or people looking for a great place to eat out :-) I highly recommend it.

Excellent food and service. Such a real pleasure to have good quality Indian food.
The only negative is the small print associated with Opentable. They have a non show policy for 48 hours before at £30 per head. We booked within 48 hours so no matter what happened we would have had to pay penalty if unavailable. We will avoid this service in future. Not impressed.

8 of us went to Kahani for a birthday celebration. We all had the meat and vegetarian Dawat menu. The food was incredible. Absolutely melt in your mouth. Really good value too. The service was also very friendly and fun. We cannot wait to return.

All dishes are unusual with a big choice for vegetarians. Some dishes are not for the faint hearted ie pretty spicy! The flavours were individual unlike many usual curry houses where there are too many flavours to appreciate them. The cocktails and desserts were amazing. Shame no tablecloths. Service was very good.

The food and service was great at the waiter and servers end. However we went for the Christmas set menu and the food service was WAY too slow. 7 courses took way longer than they should have. Pity though because the food was great and so were the drinks. Just wish the kitchen had clicked.

Christmas dinner delight
Delicious meal and delightful service. It was a set Christmas menu with a good variety of meat and seafood each prepared with a delicate balance of spices - definitely the best way to have turkey (turkey tikka). Good value for a 7 course meal and a lovely atmosphere
It was great not to be rushed through despite being an early sitting.
