Great food , lovely staff very accommodating. Made us feel welcome and were a laugh. The food seemed very authentic and had additional dishes rather than just typical Indian dishes.

Tried this restaurant as a new location for a regular friends curry club and very impressed. Particular good well spiced lamb hara massala and chicken karahi, and a succulent roast duck curry, but the real stars were the sides. Excellent black lentil and cauliflower/broccoli with...More

I didn't see it on the menu. They will have potatoes and a deep fat fryer, so if you call in advance and check / request, they may be able to do this. If they do, then there's no shortage of curry sauce to go with your... More

A modern, glass-fronted Indian on the burgeoning strip between The Bedford pub and Balham High Road, Indian Room has found itself something of a haven for couples. It must be the serene whiteness (table linen, walls) and candlelight. Then there's the health-conscious cooking using as little as oil as possible. Well worth trying are the handful of dishes unique to this popular local restaurant, a wonderful apricot chicken Kashmir among them. Chicken madras, and a super-hot chicken vindaloo are consistently the most-ordered of the All Time Favourites.
