A firm favourite whenever we stay in that part of London, we particularly like the Sunday-night buffet which is great value, and there is a big choice of the (all-vegetarian) dishes. The place is almost more of a café environment rather than a posh restaurant but none the worse for that - the décor is cheerful, and the place has... More

This is the most pathetic restaurant we ever visited. Was staying in the area as part of my business travel. I asked to remove the service charge as service was really bad. They all started in talking there own language, abusing and gave me very small receipt as bill. I asked for the itemised bill and for this they all... More

I had dhal soup and aloo methi which included 3 chapatis washed down with mango lassi. Both dishes were excellent and I was very full afterwards. The food and drink were excellent value, coming to about £15 including a service charge. Been going there for 25 years and it's as good as ever.

Vegetarian. Very helpful staff give you recommendations. There are dishes here I have not come across in all the Indians I've visited. The place is decorated in a colourful but simple way. It's not posh nor trying to be. For a relaxed time it's perfect

Great place for an exotic selection of vegetarian Indian dishes. The Sunday buffet was great value. The selection is vast with a variety of starters, salads & main dishe. The food was delicious. Included in the price are Indian desserts. The spread was great that I did not miss not eating any meat or fish. The service is somewhat non... More

I have had lunch here a few times and never been disappointed. The food is plentiful and delicious. Its a vegetarian restaurant and has so much to choose from. Curry's, kormas, fried vegetables, battered vegetables and some lovely sweets. There is nothing fancy or pretentious in the building but that is reflected in the incredibly low price. If your in...

I have been eating at Ravi Shankar's for over 17 years. I have always loved the food but to be totally honest in the past few years it has been hit or miss. Nevertheless I have remained loyal and whenever I am in London I always pay it a visit. Today however it was excellent, I am so glad I... More

The only one of the many Indian restaurants next to our hotel that didn't have really bad reviews. Decent vegetarian fare from S. India. Rather odd service. We ordered two different sampler plates, they brought out the same thing for both of us. Without comment, whisked one away to bring it back with only a couple ot things differents. Pleasant... More

We visited Ravi Shankar while walking on Drummond Street and it looked really inviting. This is places was established 1980's and boasts to be a really old authentic Indian cuisine place. It's a fully vegetarian restaurant We went in on a Friday evening at 6 and the place was quite crowded. We got a seat quite fast and the person... More
