Perhaps “the best and coolest Indian restaurant in London” (if you have deep pockets) – this slick Belgravian provides “beautifully presented, utterly delicious” small plates from its “wonderfully original menu” (fans are “not sure it’s really Indian in a purist sense, but more a top, modern Indian grill on its own terms”). It is “expensive but provides real value”“I’ve rarely tasted such terrific flavours in India, and never in the UK”.

“Cracking Indian fine dining with-a-twist” is to be had at this “congenial” and moodily “cavernous” Belgravia fusion-venture (under the same ownership as Chutney Mary and Veeraswamy). The tapas-style dishes, prepared in an open kitchen over the grill, deliver “vibrant” and “fabulous flavours”, and rank amongst London’s very best. Overall, it’s “a bit expensive”, but a “super, super, super-lovely experience”.

“Treat yourself – you won’t be sorry!” This “dark and luxurious”, “fusion-Indian” has a “surprisingly different tapas-style approach that just works”. “Subtly-spiced”, “wonderfully fragrant” small dishes (many of them from the grill) are prepared in the open kitchen, providing “contemporary food at its best… if at Belgravia prices”. “Don’t let the staff cajole you into more dishes than you need!”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
