The food here is good rather than exceptional but nevertheless I shall return. Slightly off the beaten track the restaurant is smartly furnished in modern style if a little unadventurous. There is the usual extensive menu with standard and unremarkable popadoms before the meal. Chicken...More

We arrived late after traveling and the manager was very welcoming. Asked us what kind of flavours we liked/disliked and suggested dishes for each of us. Food was delicious and the prices are good. Will definitely go back next time we're in London

The 153 bus goes right past the restaurant, but it's also easy walking distance from Highbury Corner (e.g. Highbury & Islington Victoria line/Overground) and from Caledonian Road (e.g. Piccadilly line).
