Description: Khan’s has just entered it’s Thirty Eighth year in business, and is still one of Europe’s largest and most popular Indian restaurants. Khan’s was founded in 1977 by Mr. M Y Khan and is still to this day run by the same family in London. Keeping all the traditional, quality and standard of this amazing founder. To enter the new Millennium the Khan’s family decided to abolish the sale of alcohol, in accordance with healthy eating & healthy drinking, the adopted philosophy of wholesomeness, well-being and recreating the traditional ambiance – ‘The days of the Raj’. As a result, this has created a more family orientated restaurant for every one to enjoy. The selection of Organic & Halal drinks is vast which includes a selection of Khan’s fruit cocktails all created in-house. Renowned for it’s high standard and quality of food as all ingredients are bought fresh daily, 100% Halal. The menu is extensive with well over 70 main courses to choose from, all using authentic traditional recipes. A few house specialties include Fish Curry, Methi Gosht, Chicken Tikka, Butter Chicken, Bombay Aloo and Mutter Paneer. The menu caters for everyone from the Health-conscious to the Vegetarians. Khan’s has also created it’s own children’s menu, whereby, the dishes served are mild, healthy with plenty of flavour. The atmosphere at Khan’s is breath taking; the pace is fast and the service faultless, a unique atmosphere that must be experienced.

My wife took me to khan's for a treat yesterday said khan's is one of the top restaurants in London so i went. Upon arrival we were fighting to open the door as we had a baby pram no one came to help us but the waiter was watching us fighting with the door but one of the customers kindly came and helped us. The old waiter offered us a table for two but we were three including my daughter, we said ok thought they might have a lot of bookings. The waiter gave us the menus but never came back to us to take the order but we had to wave them to come to us. We ordered 2 cocktails came after ages and ordered some papadoms which wasn't crispy but the chutneys were ok. We ordered 1 chicken chat & sheek kebab for our starter, they were nice but we've been charged for main not for starters. The main dishes were nice too but not to be awarded. We called a waiter and complained about the bill we've been charged extra, he sent another old rude waiter who cant speak english said everything is expensive these days i said ok but charge us for starter pls not as main coz we had sheek kebab starter 2 pcs cant be £6.40. The waiter so rudely said he went somewhere and had a glass of coke for 1000 rupees lol
He is too rich thinking why is he working here?
Thank you very much for the service... I will never go back there. Good bye

The place is big and feels more like a "diner" than a restaurant: paper mats on the tables and bits and pieces of food on the floor. The service was so-and-so: they find you fast, but push quite aggressively to upgrade your order and the beer ordered halfway through the meal never arrived at our table.

Food is good, really deliciously fabulously Indian with no fake wannabe fusion-confusions: hot means hot and mild means mild, rice smells heavenly and the sauces are rich in flavour.
Would recommend it to foodies, but it probably wouldn’t be the best choice for a romantic night out or for a sophisticated dinner.

We went to Khans for an evening meal. Disappointed after the hype

Firstly as we sat i asked for a sharp knife or scissors to open a carton of milk for the little one. The helpful waiter told me to use the butter knife....... Deep breath.

We ordered a mixed grill and biriyani. The biriyani was ok. The mixed grill was dry and tasteless. In fact both dishes suffered from a lack of taste.

My wife told me Khans used to be a top end restaurant with tasty food, but since it was taken over by new management, it has gone downhill.

My last visit to London was too many years ago than I care to remember. It was an error to re-visit old haunts. Khans was once laid back, cool, trendy and superb cuisine. All that has changed now.
