Their Butter Chicken, is chucks of boiled chicken dumped in a korma-like sauce. I complained and was met with rude service and an even ruder manager. Avoid like the plague - there is nothing Indian about this restaurant.

Had an excellent meal with 15 friends this evening. The service and the meal was really outstanding, everybody was very happy including the organiser Mr Malcolm Russell. Well done everybody and thank you. I have no hesitation in recommending this establishment.

Good quality Indian. Lamb Vindaloo and a tandoori mixed grill were excellent. Staff were very attentive and polite. Recommend a visit if you are in the neighbourhood. Prices are on the lower side for London!

Good choice on menu and very attentive staff, although getting the bill at the end can take a bit of time. Keep coming back though - quality of food is excellent.

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
