We had to wait till noon on a Saturday for the restaurant to open and order some food for take-away to visit a home-bound friend. The ordering was quick and efficient -- a scant 20 minutes while we browsed the bookshop next door and some other shops on the High Street. We thought we had ordered "generously" for three people...

Tried Guglee via Deliveroo. The food I was delivered was simply appalling. To call it Indian food is an insult to the delicious cuisine of a great country. My chicken tikka masala was a suspiciously glowing orange colour, with rubbery chicken and a disgustingly sweet sauce. Nothing was seasoned in the dish. The garlic naan tasted burnt and was bland...

I ordered through Deliveroo. Positive: the food arrived really hot. When I opened the lids, I knew something wasn't right. It didn't smell like any Indian takeaway I had ever eaten. I had chicken korma with a peshwari naan and pilau rice. The chicken was like plastic - so dry and burnt. The sauce? What can I say? It wasn't... More

Claims of "authentic" Indian food appear misplaced when the food I had was tasteless, hardly any spice or chilli and bright orange food dye in the curry sauce very offputting. First and last visit to this place.

Always feel like it is a risk trying a new Indian place and having moved to a new area it became required on this occasion. Well it is safe to say this put the fear of god into us and i really dont like writing poor reviews. Dont go expecting a nice thick creamy sauce, both curries we had were... More

I ordered a deliveroo from here today for lunch. I spent £36 on a variety of naans, curries and starters. Never before have I been unable to finish a curry. The chicken in my korma was inedible. V.chewy and tasted like plastic. The 'creamy' sauce was simply beige water. If I had been eating in, it would have been sent... More

This is a great indian restaurant in West Hampstead. The food was exactly what we wanted and there was a bit of spice to it. Staff are nice. I do recommend eating here.

We found the food at Guglee to be pretty average. The pani Puri wasn't very authentic and the paneer makhani a bit too sweet in flavour for our tastes. It was by no means bad but have had much better Indian food elsewhere.

I'm a huge fan Indian food, and over the years have been to dozens of Indian establishments and finding it increasingly difficult to not get that uncomfortable heavy and full feeling afterwards. The food at Guglee was phenomenal and I felt like I could have gone for a run afterwards. No full and lethargic feeling whatsoever! For one the popadoms... More

Really good meal for ordering a few dishes together and sharing everything. There's a really good variety of food, especially vegetarian options. The mango Lassi was really good. Between 5 people, a selection of starters, two mains, several Naan and a Lassi each came to £17.50 a head. Super filling food as well so you will not leave hungry. Decor... More
