“Even my Punjabi mother-in-law swooned!” – Manoj Vasaikar’s “very distinctive” modern Indian cuisine remains “worth the trip” to this very well-known, but somewhat “oddly located” little “gem”, near Ravenscourt Park.

"Have been meaning to visit this for a long time, as it seemed to get good reviews and I like subtle, modern Indian food. Finally did on Saturday and it was a big disappointment. Maybe I left it too long and it's now coasting on its reputation. The ambience was lively, as expected on a Saturday night but, by the end, I didn't see what had attracted such a large crowd. I was seated in the back 'annexe', which seemed to be a glorified marquee and managed to be both drafty and too hot - the latter because of the ceiling heater pointing straight down on me. Service was outwardly ingratiating but suggested little warmth or care for me as the customer. The food was the main let-down, though. Generally can only be described as lacking zing! Little subtlety in the flavours or 'edge' to the cooking to justify the really quite high prices good value. The poppadums were no different from those I've had in many cheaper restaurants and weren't warm. The 'amuse bouche' of soup was bland. The spicing of the sauce on the starter (lamb koftas) tasted hot (too hot for me, but that is admittedly down to personal taste) but lacked subtlety. They were surrounded by flabby but dominant slices of onion. The main - large prawns - was very over-cooked. I could hardly distinguish the prawns' cotton wool texture from that of the new potato (of which there was a single small specimen, not the 'new potatoes' specified on the menu) griddled alongside them. On the side, there was a bowl of the same slivers of onion in hot sauce which had appeared on the starter. I avoided them. The Indian Sauvignon Blanc was nice enough, but didn't redeem a pretty miserable experience. I wouldn't return, or recommend - though I have the impression that won't bother them much as I didn't feel greatly valued."

"Still very impressive spicing and presentation of the food but on the last couple of occasions I've found the service verging on poor."

"Excellent Indian in Hammersmith, with genuinely high quality cooking that doesn't cost the earth - the fish curry, cauliflower and other dishes were all delicious. Efficient if uninspiring service, atmosphere a bit dull but you come for the food."
