Summary

This landmark curry-stalwart in Soho has revamped over the years, but its ratings waned sharply this year; for fans it’s still a big favourite, but for others it’s now a big let-down – “it made me think of an averagely ‘premium’ restaurant, in an averagely ‘premium’ hotel”.

Summary

“It’s set the standard for Indian food for years”, say fans of this Soho stalwart (which underwent a “faintly impersonal” modern revamp a few years ago); others are more cautious – “it was good on an ‘offer’, but would have seemed overpriced at full tariff”.

Summary

This Soho stalwart – decorated nowadays “rather in international-hotel style” – no longer attracts the attention it once did; some loyalists still hail it as “London’s best traditional Indian”, but most assessments are more middle-of-the-road.
