Easily accessible venue. Good parking Rate after 6 pm (£10 for the night) at Euston Square... try to beat the congestion charge by having a 7.15 pm booking. The best Indian food ever!!!! Great blend of flavours, friendly staff, clean loos! Fantastic value for money...More

Popped in here for dinner on a Tuesday night, not too busy, quite a big restaurant, service friendly but a little slow at times. All food was tasty, reasonable portions, and to good standard. Reasonable value, and food but nothing spectacular.

Try and stop by the Massala Hut as often as I can because the food is great and service friendly and quick. I highly rate the Chicken Dhansak - perfect balance of sweet and sour and spice! Go try for yourself - good value too!

A fairly standard Indian meal here. However looked to use a discount card (50%) and was met with a rude and dismissive owner; if you do want the business, don't commit to the offer! Plenty of other curry houses on the same street; follow the...More
