survey result

For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.

Summary

“Delicious pimped-up Indian food” is served in a “cool and slick”, “night-club-vibe” setting at this conveniently sited duo, with locations just off Trafalgar Square and Bank: “not cheap but value for money”.

Summary

The low profile of these designer Indians – in a “dim-lit” basement near Trafalgar Square, and near Bank – is at odds with the big sums lavished on their slick décor; feedback is thin but upbeat – the food’s “not cheap” but “very well prepared”, and they serve “great bar snacks along with full meals”.

Summary

These slick and ambitious designer Indians – in a basement near Trafalgar Square, and in the City – are certainly a “step up from most curry houses”; the level of survey feedback they inspire, however, is now very modest compared to their glory days.

Summary

Surprisingly little commentary on this style-conscious duo of designer-Indians, in a large basement by Trafalgar Square, and near Bank… especially as almost all the feedback says their “different” dishes are “good” or better.
