Harden's survey result
After a “welcome return” and revamp following an extended period of closure, this stalwart of Hammersmith’s restaurant row (est 1972) continues to provide a “very relaxing” setting for chef Rafiq’s consistently “enjoyable” curries.
This “favourite” fixture of the Hammersmith strip (which opened in 1972) sports a brighter, more modern look than once it did (the ’70s-tastic dark glazed frontage is long gone). Praise remains steady for chef Rafiq’s deft curries (including “the best bhuna lamb ever”).
“A cut above the after-pub curry house”, this “high-quality” Hammersmith Indian of decades standing has been able to thrive “in an area of high competition (Zing, Potli)”. In summer 2017 it closed for a total reformat under long-term owner Rafique – when it re-opens we expect it to be good, but we’ve removed the (very solid) ratings as a sharp break with the past seems to be on the cards.
“Freshly cooked food by chef Rafiq is always a pleasure – fairly standard Indian, but done so well”, say fans of this age-old, comfortably traditional Hammersmith curry house. “Great service” too (“attentive when they needed to be, otherwise left us alone”).
