“Simply brilliant food that just blows your socks off”“posh curry, but not too mucked about with” – continues to wow at JKS restaurant’s original Marylebone venture, which remains one of London’s top destinations for “top notch” Indian cuisine. (“Excellent home delivery meal boxes” are also a feature.) Its modestly sized, U-shaped premises are slightly constrained by their layout, but for most reporters the effect is “lovely and intimate”.

“Original, flavour-packed and utterly delicious” – the cuisine at Karam Sethi’s original Marylebone venture (the first in the JKS stable) is a fine homage to the Mumbai venue from which it takes its name, and even if “sister-restaurant Gymkhana has the edge” nowadays, it remains one of the capital’s top Indian destinations. It’s “really buzzy when full” (to an extent one or two reporters find “disturbing” of enjoyment).

The Sethi family’s original London venture – this “low-key”-looking, ten-year-old recreation of a famous Mumbai venue, in Marylebone, is beginning to show its age a little. Fans still tout its “exquisitely prepared and not over-spiced cuisine”, as “the best in fine-end Indian dining” and on a par with its now more high-profile sibling, Gymkhana. But ratings here slid noticeably across the board in this year’s survey, amidst gripes about “rather sporadic service” and food that’s “starting to feel a mite unexciting nowadays”. Is their empire finally showing growing pains?

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).

"A very pleasant place to eat. The early evening menu is very good value but one generally has to ask for this menu, it isn’t often offered. Although beautifully spiced and v enjoyable, this food has never really felt like eating Indian food, not sure why."

"A lovely restaurant. The tandoori salmon was near perfect. The scallops were another high point. The only point to note is that the portions were generous and we were very full by the end of the meal. We definitely over-ordered."

"My 3rd visit, and best experience so far, better I think for opting for a la carte - and spotting an old German Riesling. Cooking varies from exceptional / inventive to more hearty / traditional - you have distinct choices to make about how adventurous to be."
