Really good quality Indian food in a small, cozy setting for a decent price. Could be improved with faster service.

Chicken Biryani was great! Also everything else what we ordered was nice but the service staff who served us was not so friendly.

Hidden gem in central London if looking for quality Indian cuisine at a very reasonable price, the decor is not the best but the quality of the food and price more than makes up for it, well worth seeking this place out, off a little...More

Fresh, tasty food; excellent prices, including alcoholic drinks; and, contrary to what many have said here, friendly service.

The flavors are just right, and the drinks are cheap. This is my number one go to place when I want quality food for what I pay. I love it.

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.
Despite an understandable popularity with students,
tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and

This classic curry house, located between Kings Cross and Russell Square tube stations in London, is conveniently located for snappy working lunches and post-work Phals. The bright and buzzy restaurant has a modern dining room decorated with fairy lights, blue velvet chairs and crisp linens, and the convivial atmosphere is a hit with local curry aficionados. The kitchen at Tavistock Tandoori cooks up traditional halal Indian and Bengali fare, and we recommend the Prawn Kurma Kashmiri cooked with lychees and cream; the Chicken Dhansak in a sweet and sour lentil sauce; and the Lamb Tikka marinated in yoghurt and spices barbecued in the clay oven. The restaurant has a fully stocked bar with lager on tap.
