Indian
London’s Ooty on Baker Street promises an extravagant South Indian culinary experience, unlike anything the city has seen – or eaten - before. With a name tracing back to the origins of an idyllic hill-station in Tamil Nadu, Udhagamandalam (a.k.a. Ooty), this new concept restaurant captures the essence of the historical British Raj combined with the plush contemporary finish of modern day London. On Saturdays, Ooty kicks the weekend off with a vegetarian-friendly and bottomless Prosecco-fuelled Indian brunch and the lunch and dinner menus are stuffed with delicacies from all corners of South India. If you want to try as much as possible then we recommend one of the set menus. You can go gourmet with either tea or wine pairing, or go for the meat, vegetarian or vegan set menu. As you can see, there’s plenty of choice!

My wife n me went out for dinner for my birthday. The reception, food and service were all good. One particular thing which unsettled us was the fact that all the customers around us were requested for snaps by the restaurant team while we were never asked for one. We didn’t want one.

Nice new addition to the Marylebone area, and a good way for foodies to appreciate Southern Indian cuisine. Staff was very helpful with food suggestions. Also a classy, though slightly limited, wine list. Overall would strongly recommend.

Service is excellent and they went overboard to help us in our choices and ensure we enjoyed ourselves however the food was simply not tasty. I have rarely eaten such bland food in an Indian restaurant and was sorely disappointed in what we ate. If as much effort was put into the non meat dishes as the meat ones I am sure this review would be better, but truth is, as a non meat eater, the fish dishes were not enjoyable and the vegetarians bland beyond words. I will not be returning despite the excellent cocktails and service. - their bar however I definitely will!

This is by far the best restaurant I have dined at. Went there for a business lunch and returned for dinner with friends. The chef does not disappoint. Each dish is served in style and the flavors are simply outstanding. It is hards to be innovative with South Indian cuisine, but this place makes it look easy. Dosa with mince stuffing that has a touch of lemongrass... or pineapple rasam with coconut foam... or the chat with lemon foam canapés. Every dish was amazing. Highly recommended. This place is a gem!

One of the best Indian experiences I've had. The food was SUPER tasty and that started with the poppadoms that came with jaw-droppingly tasty chutneys.

Ooty was snooty - would not serve tap water.
We ordered too much food as server told us portions were single sized, but byriani could have fed 3 people - Unable to take a doggy bag home which is unfortunate and so food wasted which is a shame as pricy

WOW!!
A perfect new modern Indian with a twist in Marylebone who will give the other modern Indian a run for their money especially when it comes to service value.
Service was polite, warm, informative and thoughtful from being greeted at front-of-house to final check request.
Food was delightful! Layers of flavour, abundance of fresh seasonal produce and beautifully presented. Does was freshly made, sea bass in banana leaf was divine, tofu and spinach on roti
Can’t wait to check out Ooty Station!

This restaurant used to be buzzing when it was the French restaurant Galvin. Now in its new incarnation an air of pretentiousness has overwhelmed it. The food really is not Indian at all. It is very bland, almost tasteless and presented like European dishes. The place is dreary, the decor old fashioned (pink chairs!) and the background nighclub music annoying. We won't be back. Shame as we love Indian food and live locally.

This new gem is fantastic, an elegant ambiance, refined flavourful dishes, warm but professional service. Our server elli was extremely knowledgable about the dishes and everything she recommended was superb.

I have been twice and I will be back. Nicoletta the maitre and Kenny the manger are also outstanding

The food was expensive for the portion size of the main dish. There was very little meat on the lamb shank and the bread was oily

When my friend asked what the small piece of equipment was that contained liquid chilli, the waiter picked it off her plate, showed her how it worked then placed it on top of her food - not very hygienic

There was very little atmosphere

All in all very disappointing
