Pure excellence. The experience was superb even though numbers were reduced because of coronavirus. Both food and service were superb.

Really outstanding food - every single bite was a taste experience that was delightful. Thoroughly enjoyed it. We were unfortunate to have a waitress who wasn't great (maybe new) and either didn't understand us or just didn't know the answer to things and didn't want to say, but the other staff were lovely. They made a fuss of my friend for her birthday. Lovely evening.

we thad travelled 70 miles to eat at the restaurant. This was our 5th visit.The staff looked uninterested and my friend almost left the restaurant without eating. He had to be cajoled into coming back. The person serving us was a bit patronising,telling us that "This is England" when asked about the types of whiskey served in the restaurant. Surely we are aware of the region we are in!Honestly, this was not what we were expecting with our previous experience.
The food was good;perhaps the saving grace.

I feel slightly embarrassed to order Butter Chicken at a Michelin star restaurant considering what’s on the menu BUT the butter chicken here is amazing and so hard to pass up. It’s utterly superb, and a perfect dish to share. Every time I have it here I leave well satisfied and happy. By far one of my favourite restaurants in London and the setting is fantastic. Perfect setting for a date, or private time with a partner as you’re sat far away from everyone to be in your own private bubble. Love it here

Very enjoyable early Sunday evening meal, although it is not clear on the website the Sunday Jazz is only lunch time...
The black cod and venison were superb and black dahl (rare find in UK) really reminded us of our 6 months in Pune!
The restaurant was very quiet and we were a bit surprised no one offered to take our coats.

Lovely venue for a restaurant with good ambience. Set menu: some dishes were style over substance e.g. too much yoghurt in starter dish, mutton was a bit tough (saw someone sending it back to have it taken off bone), colourful dessert but should have concentrated on getting flavours right. Been here previously and enjoyed the food so this time was a bit disappointing.

Felt like Faulty Towers. Food was average and it is expensive. Does not compare well with other restaurants. Drinks took almost 40 minutes. Would not rush back

Did not enjoy the food at all. Beyond bland, and made my friend and I both slightly noxious afterwards. Highly disappointing. Good ambiance and character however.

I booked this for my partners 50th birthday, after he had seen it on a programme. It was a fantastic evening, the ambience was great, the food was amazing and the waiting staff were very attentive. We will definitely return and have recommended it to some of our friends who had previously told us that they were interested in going.

Located in the former Colonial Office's Library, the restaurant has a distinguished atmosphere and surroundings. A former colleague and I now meet there to discuss how to put the world to rights! It makes a convenient location near Westminster Abbey for us both.
Signalling in advance for a quieter table, the restaurant gave us a comfy corner table. The place was not full but it was a Friday and some politicians would have gone back to their constituencies.
The 3 course lunch is a good choice for business style lunches though a word of caution that this Indian restaurant does not mark on its menu which of its dishes are more spicy/hotter than others as evidenced by the same chicken my friend and I ordered: mine came with plain rice; his with a ratatouille because I had asked for a less hot dish. This is not a cheap restaurant, but service is good and the food is tasty

One of us was unfortunately running late due to transport issues and by the time they arrived, the restaurant had filled up and we had finished our first glass of wine and bread basket. As a result, service was quite slow but that is understandable, since they were probably waiting for our late arrival to peruse the menu properly. One person asked for advice on the menu since he couldn’t decide what to have: the advice was sensible and good, and that person really, really enjoyed his meal.
Staff are lovely: food is beyond good, it is exceptional, and the room is delightful. If you want the best value, go for the set lunch. But the a la carte brings delights of its own. We have been several times - and we will definitely be going again!! A serious cut above Cinnamon Soho in terms of smartness, but just a lovely place to spend a special evening... with the charming touch of a little cake at the end of it for the birthday guest. Thank you!

We decided to go for the tasting menu, which was nice, but not amazing. We were very shocked that this did not include any rice or narn and we found ourself eating mash potato! On reflection not the best choice of food perhaps... Wine pairing was very good though

There is not much that has not been said really, I make an effort to go to a nice restaurant once a month!
Saying that this was not a nice restaurant it was fantastic the food was unbelievable every bit was sublime!
The staff were all brilliant unfortunately I cannot remember the name of the our waitress but she made the whole experience that little extra.
I know you should expect that kind of service when you pay that sort of money but we walked out of there just saying one of the best meals ever (deff in the top 3)
All I can add is a thank you to all the staff you made our evening special
