Summary

“A menu inspired by street hawkers and roadside cafés” produces “delicious” and “authentic”-tasting street food at this highly popular, contemporary Indian operation, near Selfridges. The formula is essentially the same in the ground floor café or basement restaurant, and in general folks “are not sure that eating downstairs is worth the extra”.

Summary

The “spicy” dishes are “damned good” at this “original and interesting” Indian operation near Selfridges, serving street-hawker-style small plates on the “more casual”, “grab-and-go” ground floor and tandoori grills plus regional specialities in the “more formal” basement. Both options are “very good value for central London”.
