“Lamb fat in a Chili powdered tomato soup”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

Without doubt the most disappointing India restaurant I have ever been to. We are from the Midlands with one of us from Bradford so we know curry.
We ordered three meals, a Lamb Rogan Josh, Lamb Madras and a chicken vindaloo and it was very obvious that these were reheated efforts. The rices were dry and microwaved. The keema Naan meat was like liquidised sauce .. truly horrible.
Madras - Lamb 'meat' was terribkly fatty and strangely very soft and mushy, The madras sauce was thin and runny like a tomato soup overloaded with chili powder.
We had to complain and I asked the waiter if he would consider this a madras sauce and would he try it to which he declined..
After a protracted row they agreed to take the meals off the bill but still wanted to charge for the rice ?? which we couldn't eat !!
All this along with some creative billing, I cannot find anything to recommend about this restaurant other than to walk past.
Sorry.

“Underwhelming but will suffice if you just want to fill your belly”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2013 via mobile

We tried to go to a nearby pub but it was full due to a football game. So we wandered over to this place. Worst samosas I've ever had by a long shot. The only thing that tasted good was the Chana masala. Butter chicken was strangely, almost cloyingly sweet. Aloo gobi - disappointing. At least I am not going to bed hungry tonight.

“Good Indian Place near Earls Court Tube”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2013

The food was pretty good. No complaints about it. The reason I gave it an "average" rating is they served me a completely flat coke. I complained about it and they still put it in the bill. If you go, drink the beer... otherwise I would defiantly eat there again.

“Awful Indian food - i guess they can't be bothered due to the tourist clientele”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2013

really poor quality chicken in the korma.

Watery and tasteless dhal.

Pickles looked and tasted like they had been hanging around all evening

waiters trying to push more drinks and food onto us.

Really this must be the worst Indian food that I have ever eaten and amongst the worst food available in Earl's Court
