Reaching “classic” status after almost two decades of “outstanding food and great service”, this Ravenscourt Park venue is a haven of “superb Indian cuisine”, thanks to chef-patron Manoj Vasaikar’s “well-spiced” cooking and “quality ingredients”. The late Michael Winner was an early fan.

“Always fine flavours” with deft and “delicate spicing” delight disciples of this deceptively ordinary-looking “local Indian” near Ravenscourt Park, which, they claim, could “easily go head-to-head with any of London’s most famous Indian restaurants”. Perhaps that’s over-egging it a little, but it’s very consistently supported. (The late Michael Winner was an early fan when chef-owner Manoj Vasaikar opened here in 2005).

“If you want top-class Indian food, look no further” than Manoj Vasaikar’s “unremarkable-looking” and cramped neighbourhood spot near Ravenscourt Park tube. Open since 2005, it was touted, back in the day, as the late Michael Winner’s favourite curry house and all reports recommend its “interesting” dishes with “wonderful flavours”.

The “amazing”, “top-quality cuisine” at Manoj Vasaikar’s consistently high-rated Ravenscourt Park venue “proves that you don’t need to go into central London to get really excellent, authentic Indian food”. A long-time favourite – the late Michael Winner was a fan – it serves “Michelin star quality cuisine without the wannabe nonsense” in a tightly packed space.

"slightly dated and worn decor, but comfortable. as it was lunch it wasn't busy, but I'm sure it'd bustle well at night. service good. some well observed attention to the needs of our party - not rushing when time was needed. not all restaurant staff have that level of subtlety or accuracy.. food was interesting and varied. one, a chicken, overly sweet and not subtle enough. most of the rest very good. in particular vegetarian dishes stood out (banana flower, dal's) & of these the smoked aubergine was outstanding favourite of everyone who tasted it (the whole table).. somewhere I'd go again."
