“Fresh-tasting food with distinctive flavours” and “unpretentious, tasty thalis” make this small London group (now in its 20th year) a “go-to chain” for its fans: “amazing value for such high-quality cuisine”.

“Very interesting Indian food for a chain”, “professional service” and a “lovely atmosphere” have carved a strong reputation for these well-established street-food cafés. “Prices seem to be creeping up” however, and even those who praise its “fresh flavours” feel it’s “not quite as good value as in the past”.

“We always go for the Grand Thali and it’s a knockout!” – These “ever-buzzing” contemporary Indians make a very “handy backstop”, with WC2 in particular “an excellent pre-theatre option” for a “fast and delicious” meal. “We thought it might be chain-bland, but the food was good and quite authentic… and good value too!”

“Surprisingly good for a chain” – these “fun” and “fast” street-food Indians provide a “genuine, varied and healthy” pit stop, with “good value thalis” a popular bet. The handy Covent Garden branch is particularly worth remembering.
