Had an Indian here while on a business trip.

I thought the service was a bit slow - but the food - when served well good and it was good value for money.
While I did not have it - there was an all you can eat buffet - and this seemed to be in good supply! There were lots of people eating it too!
I was entitled to a student discount - but had to ask the bill to be recalauted as this was not correctly deducted!
Overall - well worth a visit - I am not an Vegetarian but thought it was great!

The staff here are really nice. But this is what my friend calls 'no love' food - there has been very little love put into the food and no-one seems to take much pride in the cuisine here. Still love the friendly staff. And at 5.95 for all you can eat, you can't get much cheaper in London.

Had a dosa - which was just okay
Rice and peas - not bad
Aubergine curry (my all time fave) - totally without flavour and spice - just a boiled vegetable dropped onto the plate.

Indian vegetarian restaurants can do much better if they tried - what they produce is in the main insipide and limp and this place was no exception.

The night I was there the place was full of dungaree wearing CND women - made me feel a bit out of place.

Service was alright.

This tiny restaurant in a cosy, hidden part of central London has no frills but you get a warm welcome. There is a menu for veggy fans but for the rest of us cautiously exploring vegetarian food, there is a delightful buffet - at £6 (yes six pounds) in the evening, even cheaper at lunchtime, and no mark-up on the beverages. You can start with a choice from more than a half dozen chutney and pickles and also help yourself from the pile of poppadoms and quartered naans. Then go back and try any of the dozen or so mains (the chick pea and the potato dishes excel), with a choice of three rices, and salads to add.There are a three sweets available to finish up with.

This is not a fancy place. They have a set Indian vegetarian buffet which is very cheap and good value. I dont think many people come here to order from the a la carte menu- its mainly the buffet.

The dishes taste ok, nothing great and straddle the borderlands between authentic North Indian vegetarian and the pseudo-Indian food you get in Bangladeshi restaurants.

For this area its a cheap and reliable option but a 15 min walk to Drummond Street will get you better quality vegetarian buffet with not much increase in price.
