Having discovered the famous shepard market, we had a look around the hidden village everyone's been hyping about, and stumbled across this small jewl, tucked away in the corner like something In an aladins movie. On arrival we were greeted with warm welcomes, but had to wait for a table as it was obviously a very busy time. Eventually got... More

I was hesitant to try this restaurant as I saw some mixed reviews, but I and 6 of my little party, were more than impressed by the standard of service and quality of food provided in this little Indian. I couldn't find fault in anything and I can't say how much I appreciate the level of personal attention found in... More

I am at least 10 countries and six months behind on my reviews but I liked this place so much that I decided to do it first. What makes a good restaurant? The ambiance? The location? The quality of the fittings? To an extent, yes. But what really makes a good restaurant is the quality of the food and the... More

First of all, Kiefer Sutherland who happens to be one of my favourite actors ( see him in the amazing Designated Survivor !) should not be reviewing Indian restaurants. I read the reviews in TA, both positive and negative and was hoping for a good meal. This is a tiny restaurant, but well mantained and very clean. Seems to be... More

Terrible food, poor service and very expensive, that's all I can say really. Oily food, no flavour and just generally very bland

You were situated in Mayfair, the most expensive location of the UK therefore you should be knowledgeable to understand the price of anything in this area is not the same anywhere else. In fact the restaurant is one of the cheapest cuisines in the area, please have a stroll around our neighbor cuisines and view their prices before making absurd... More

What a wonderful place! We were strolling around Shepherd's Market trying to decide on a spot for dinner...saw the cute article in the window of New Taj Mahal...Kiefer Sutherland highly recommended it! The food was delicious and we loved our waiter! We were visiting from Texas and he gave us several suggestions for spots to visit! Really enjoyed everything about... More

We were here last year by coincidence while we were walking from green Park to Hyde Park. At the first look it's really small and not really invitingly like the whole street. There is only space for around 10 people. The Owner ist very friendly and the food is really delicious. So we came back today with the whole family.... More

Stumbled across this place and thought we would give it a try. It's small..20 covers and a tiny loo but the food was good, reasonably authentic and wasn't expensive and the service, while a little abrupt was fine. Can't ask much more than that in an area which has some super expensive places to eat and drink.

Well there I was with a group of Swedish friends in Grosvenor Square looking for somewhere interesting to eat. Shepherds Market was a favourite area of theirs and so we headed in that direction. On previous occasions they'd been to the larger restaurants and whilst walking around we came upon this restaurant which looked interesting. Indeed, you descend the steps... More

Despite the mixed reviews this was the closest Indian restaurant to our apartment. And we did not have the same experience as others. The food was good and the service friendly and efficient. I am not sure how such a small place with a probably small kitchen manages, but we enjoyed our experience.

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
