Went to Kanchans after a very long time. Food and service used to be good here. What happened. For a Friday night it was empty. Only one more couple. They had a function upstairs, looked busy. The service was poor with only 2 couples in the whole restaurant. I wonder how they cope when it's full capacity. The fish starter... More

We came in on 26.10.2016 and was appalled at the service and food. There was a time when Kanchans provided mango chutney, chopped onions and mint chutney with the starters, however, now they provide mint chutney and a very sour imli chutney. Poppadums tasted as if they were old and just been re-heated. Haryali chicken was warm upon serving which... More

We used this venue for a party on the ground floor and I must say the catering and overall service was of an exceptional standard - there was also a live singer which added to the ambience.

Dhaba Meat and Saffron Rice was all good but both the chicken dishes were very salty.. We did finish the kebab somehow but Butter Chicken, we... More

Not sure what it is about Indian restaurants in London, but they do lack that all important sense of customer service! We were at a family wedding function in the private room upstairs, but the ventilation was poor and the dance floor way too small. The food was average and the catering manager was far from accommodating (or even just... More

Walked into an empty Kanchans at around 10pm and was greeted by friendly staff. Nothing to worry about I thought as this restaurant has a decent reputation but it has been years since I last visited... It will be years for me to ever go back too... The draft beer we ordered was off and smelt of egg, obviously they... More
