“Consistently good modern Indian cooking” and “engaging staff” win firm praise for Manoj Vasaikar’s “lovely” colonial-styled outfit near the river – sibling to well-known Hammersmith star, Indian Zing; “from the first taste of the amuse bouche, on the table within seconds of sitting down, to the kulfi dessert, absolutely everything is excellent”.

“It may not have the cachet of a London address but it has a wow factor!” – Manoj Vasaikar’s large, colonial-style villa out in the ’burbs delivers some “beautifully presented dishes” that are “tip top”. Top Tips – “the lunch menu is particularly good” and they go “great take-out too”.

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).
