Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great food, fast service. But a little low on what you get for the price that you pay. Busy so reservation is necessary. But overall, for a quick diner its ok

Great food with the best manager. The student meal deal was great for our group dinner. The manager was incredible charismatic, and made dinner a ton of fun.

Memories of India gave us a student meal deal and it was amazing! The food was delicious and the manager was so funny. Memories of India was hospitable and gave us a very warm welcome to London.

Would not recommend. We had a booking for my friends birthday at 8pm. They had us waiting outside in the cold London weather for 45 minutes. Unacceptable. When we complained, the guy even argued that we had made the booking at 8:15pm which was not...true. Would not recommend the place. Its expensive and very bad service.More

Atrocious service. It took 15 minutes for the waiter to notice us, come and take our order and then even more time to actually get us the food. It even took them 25 minutes to serve us our vill after we asked. Dreadful. The restaurant...was also very noisy and cramped, difficult to hold a conversation. I have to admit the food was delicious, but does not compensate for the service.More

We went here just off reviews. I messaged and booked about an hour before we wanted to eat. Never been before and it didn’t disappoint. First of all you can park up a side road which is always a bonus in London! A warm welcome...awaited. Made to feel very welcome! The staff are lovely. I would even say that solo travellers would be good here. We felt very relaxed and comfortable it was spotlessly clean. Our order was taken the food was beautiful. We’ve eaten in a lot of Indian restaurants and this one is up there with the best. There wasn’t a thing left on our plates. Which is very unusual when you eat out. I was disappointed I couldn’t fit desert in! But even the bill was good at £66. I’m up for another hospital visit soon. We will be coming back without a doubt. It was a treat thank you!More

This is a fantastic restaurant and has been a family favourite for years. My parents are locals and go frequently. They are treated so incredibly well. The food we had, a mixture of tandoori treats and tasty curries with rice, papadums and bread, was truly...delicious. The service was absolutely fantastic. A wonderful restaurant! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.More

Excellent meal with family. My in-laws live just around the corner and have been going to this restaurant for decades. It never disappoints. The service is genuinely warm, friendly, and attentive. The sheek kebab and tandoori chicken starters were delicious, as were all the curries,...and hot sizzling tandoori lamb chops to die for. Excellent naan and pilau rice. We have been here several times and always found the food and service to be of a very high standard, and have never been disappointed....otherwise we wouldn't keep going!More

superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and

such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
