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.

“Chaos and curry....a fun combination!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Most locals will tell you that the very best food in London is Indian. Khans is a local legend for Indian cuisine tucked away on Westbourne Grove in Bayswater. The chaos of the dining room at meal time seems to convey the hubbub of the streets of Delhi. The menu is very extensive with a broad range of tandoori specialties. Informal, inexpensive and with excellent food quality this restaurant is a must for visitors to London. You may wish to stop in a local bar for drinks before or after, however, as Khans does not serve alcohol. Still, an interesting range of soft drinks and custom juices nicely complement the sometimes spicy food. Well worth the sacrifice.

“If you love real Indian Cuisine you will love Khan's.”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

I saw that some of the other reviews mentioned dated décor etc. Really that is part of the charm of this fabulous, by now, institution of London.
If you want somewhere fashionable and 'slick' then Khan's won't be to your liking. However if you love Indian Cuisine with real portions and don't need to be 'fawned over' by the staff, but appreciate that they serve you with speed and efficiency, then this is the place to go.

“So good i took some home”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Was staying in a hotel just around the corner and stumbled on this place. From the outside it looks like a large canteen really but the clue to there being good food inside was the number of Indian people eating in there. We went in and were glad we did. The food was great, the service quick. Can certainly recommend the chilli chicken masala, the tandoori chops, garlic nan and pilau rice. Was soooo good I went again before I came home and brought home takeaway to enjoy back in lovely Devon.
