“Always packed with locals” who come for the “huge portions from a menu that never changes”, this “mainstay” Hampstead Heath curry house is now run by the founder’s son, but the “exceptional” welcome and service “are as warm as ever”.
This veteran Hampstead Heath curry house is now run by the founder’s son, but has lost none of its legendary welcome: “they pretend to know you like an old friend!” “It looks a bit dated now” and the food may be very traditional, but it’s “always delicious – with never a bad meal”.
A “wonderful front of house” further boosts the “highly convivial” style of this “excellent, traditional Indian” of nearly a half-century’s standing, near Hampstead Heath station. It’s “madly busy”, “so booking is recommended” – the food’s “not the most adventurous, but done exceptionally well”.
“The friendly owner goes the extra mile” at this “classic, traditional, British Indian of decades' standing” – an “insufferably popular” neighbourhood “hotspot” by Hampstead Heath overground; everything about the place is “a cut above”.
