“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.
