Had two takeaways from here in last couple of months. The first was very nice. The second I chose the same food as the 1st take away but was very disappointed. The wrap starter I chose was full of gristle - no meat seemed to...More

Revisited a very well established Kentish Town haunt which continues to offer a good experience. An interesting menu, tasty food, pleasant service and a comfortable atmosphere. Lots of competition in the high street but this is still worth a visit

The food was well good, so no complaints there! The food however was very bland and tasteless. I was surprised considering that the dishes we had were highly recommended by their chef.

Never been disappointed here, reliable food. Good location, I would recommend this as a solid Indian that won't give you any digestive issues afterwards. Spices are good and ambience is above average.

It pains me to criticise a local restaurant, but the waiting staff were so incredibly offhand, escalating to outride rude when we queried our bill. The food was average, but the unforgivably terrible service embarrassed me and my visiting guests.

The restaurant was empty at 7pm on a Saturday evening but we had seen some good reviews so were keen to try the place out. However the waiter was surprisingly offhand overall, and dismissive when asked what vegan options were available. We had to leave...More

We came here prior to a gig at Kentish Town. We weren’t disappointed: fabulous dishes we’ve never tried before. It is best summed up by the fact that the old favourites like madras etc aren’t actually on the menu: they simply state that If you...More
