One of the (possibly many) underestimated small Indian restaurants in London. Excellent food, fine service, nice price. What more do you need? The korma dishes are perfectly spiced to pair with dry Riesling (whether or not this was the plan). Not exactly on the corner...More

We have been going to this small restaurant for well over 10 years and we still like it very much. Quality of food is very good at a reasonable price something that is very difficult to find in London and in that area in particular....More

Went there with an Indian friend who helped with me choose from the very large menu. Great food. Great wines. But one or two of the waiting staff were not very inviting: it didn't look like they wanted to be there!! And my jacket still...More

Tried this local place that was near my hotel. There was an extensive menu and the food was outstanding. I had the grilled lamb chops which tasted fantastic. I thought it was very reasonably priced.

I went to Bina Gardens last night for dinner with four business colleagues. I was asked to order for the entire table as they had all approved of my menu choices previously. As per usual, the bustling waiters were efficient and all food orders were...More

Needed a table for two and we were put on a small table right at the back in a dark corner. The waiter seated us, took the neatly folded serviettes, opened them and simply left them in a mess on each side of the table...More

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

There's something special about Noor Jahan that not only attracts big-name eaters - Hugh Grant, Eric Clapton and Rowan Atkinson, but also a veritable army of devoted regulars who make a habit of dining there. Maybe it's the Chef specialities, like the special recipes for chicken, lamb, king prawns and duck, but also our own British invention of chicken tikka masala. Lunchtimes are slightly subdued with the business of the day, but evenings are more vivacious and warm. The decor is simple, the service welcoming, and the cooking convincing. No wonder Noor Jahan has been a local landmark for nearly forty years.
