Memsaab in Barnsbury/Islington is a hidden gem for foodies who have an inclination to Indian dining. The restaurant is superb and yet reasonably priced. Compared to other Indian restaurants that enjoy a good reputation in London, Memsaab is excellent value for money. We have visited...More

Excellent quality food, and the best service in a restaurant we've had in a very long time. This is a hidden gem in a quiet corner of Islington. A great menu; some classics and some interesting new (to us) dishes also; we'll definitely be back.

Had the vindaloo and was very impressed. The waiters were great. Friendly, professional, helpful. Sometimes London restaurants are anonymous. Not this one!

First visit to Memsaab but hopefully not the last. Food was delicious, Tandoori lamb chops, Chicken Acchari and chilli chicken masala all really good. Nothing to disappoint and looking forward to coming back next time we're down in London.

Nearest tube station would be Caledonian Road. We were just over £100 for 4 of us and for what we had, I would say it's a tad expensive. Whilst the food was nice, I've had better, but, living in Glasgow, we have the best... More

Good news about them opening from 1.00p.m. from 17th October! Not surprised, as they're so good there's a demand they want to meet. We've been used to going there from 5.00p.m. onwards any day, apart from the long Sunday... More
