I've never seen a set menu in an Indian restaurant but they have three sets here. I went for the £20 pound set that included (pics below ) two small pieces of chicken tikka with pomegranate salad, 2 types of curry (tikka masala, lamb), lentils, naan, rice, and a dessert. Portions were pretty good size. I felt almost as full... More

Some of the dishes will be very familiar to Indian restaurant go-ers, but also there were interesting departures, such as a vegetarian tandoori platter, and the spinach bhaji starter and roasted aubergine side dish were particularly nice. Don't be put off by it being on a seemingly unpromising section of the Finchley Road nor by the takeaway moped riders hanging... More

Found this restaurant by mistake, what a turn up for the books. Probably some of the best Indian food I have had. I would and have recommended this to everyone I now see. Please visit this restaurant.

Great food, hygienic and quickly prepared - flavours are interesting and the 10% discount for collection was appreciated.

Excellent food - the genuine thing. Recipes are not adapted to Western tastes so the experience of eatin both starters and mains is the "real deal". Good service, occasionally a little chaotic. Highly recommended.

We've tried most of them, and always come back to Guglee. It's our local favourite, scene of many family special occasions. The food is consistently good - the carnivores among us adore the kashmiri lamb chops and the mutter paneer is great for veggies. The staff are always pleasant and polite and we hope it never changes. The colourful decor... More

Like other reviews we got the prawn main course and came with just 3!!!! The other dishes were lacking in flavour and the chicken tikka was dryed out!! The nann was ok and the free poppadoms however very disappointed overall.
