The decor at Lasan is very worn and tatty. Not what we expected at all for a restaurant which is supposedly the best Indian restaurant in the UK. The food was average and certainly not worth the prices charged. Service was ok but not up to the standard expected.

Back for a 4th time and the capability of Lasan to adapt to any occasion is a marvel. This time we as two work colleagues enjoyed the most amazing food coupled with absolutely impeccable service. I am struggling to find a single point of criticism and the South African Pinotage was awesome. I will be back ASAP!

Well finally got around to trying Lasan, must firstly say the staff are very attentive and friendly a real credit to the Lasan restaurant. The decor is tidy nothing special and definitely not what you'd expect for a restaurant that is trying to be special. As for the food I was expecting to be blown away and it started well... More

This used to be a great place to eat but now the service is slow the food is well over priced and overall the ambiance is not what it was. Vegi options are limited and I'm not a fan of the meat as unsure if it's organic free range so a lot of the vegi food they used to do... More

Let me say customer service was 5 stars but I want 5 stars for the food which it wasn't. They served a mutton dish to my wife when she had ordered chicken and the chicken dish was too spicey despite the description of ingredients not mentioning chilli.

The food is fantastic and original, but with a few comforting favourites. The flavour was perfectly balanced in every dish and the food was of a really high standard. The service is perfect - not overbearing but quick and friendly. Definitely not your typical Indian restaurant - a great place for a treat.
