“Very much a cut above the usual high street Indian restaurant” – Bhanu Pratap's “elegant” colonial-style villa is a “smart venture in the old part of Sunbury”. The food is “top notch” – a “good range of freshly prepared dishes” and “good value for money” too.

“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”.

“The best Indian in the area… no… one of the best full stop!”, say fan of Manoj Vasaikar’s well-established colonial-style villa (sibling to his Indian Zing near Hammersmith), on the south west outer-fringes of the capital.

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).
