I went with some friends who have been going for years and I'm glad I did. The best Indian food I've had in ages. Served by attentive staff and in a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Didn't seem very busy on the Saturday night I attended which...More

I've been in this place several times and it's usually mostly empty tables, even on a Friday or Saturday night. The food is quite a good standard, and the portions are quite large, so it's fine if you're hungry. The service isn't great but nothing...More

Great location and great food. The lamb madras was particularly good. Worth a visit if you are near tower bridge and you don't fancy a burger or a pub lunch.

Really nice selection of food. We had a lovely date night here and the service was great. They also do take away! Overall a great Indian restaurant located in tower Bridge.

It is a neutrally decorated place that could do with a makeover. The service was a little chaotic at times but the food and the drinks were good. Sometimes they have live piano music which is also nice.

After a good afternoon at the Gin Festival we needed some hearty grub to soak up the alcohol. We were very well looked after but then again our friends are regulars. Good poppadoms, tasty starters and then an excellent chicken jalfrezi. Great spices and good...More

Poor food and service. Well below the norm for an Indian restaurant. I can't believe we ended up choosing this place - so disappointing. The popadams were standard but range and quality of chutnies was below average. Curries were quite watery. One of the guys...More
