Their food is delicious and we tend to order for a take away as the service can be a little bit rushed at the restaurant and the venue itself could benefit from a face lift. However, if you are after excellent Indian food then go...More

From the outside, it looks like your typical Indian restaurant in London. White table cloths and napkin and waiters dressed in white shirts in black waistcoats. But boy oh boy, is it the best Indian ever! The poppadoms are fresh, served with the usual chutney...More

Excellent Service asked the waiter to recommend something and he did so. Lamb Curry and Dhal on the sideline. Atmosphere lovely but needs a bit of background music. Prices are a bit high and not for a family outing too expensive. Rating on food average...More

Not the most mind blowing Indian food I have ever tasted, but for a local curry house in the neighbourhood this does the trick. The dishes here tends to use less ghee/salt compared, so it feels healthier...

Frankly the food was well below par, we ordered two separate chicken dishes and the chicken was absolutely bone dry. It was as if the chicken had been pre-cooked, left in a fridge for days and then warmed up and dropped into the sauce. A...More

With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

Description
There's something special about Noor Jahan that not only attracts big-name eaters - Hugh Grant, Eric Clapton and Rowan Atkinson, but also a veritable army of devoted regulars who make a habit of dining there. Maybe it's the Chef specialities, like the special recipes for chicken, lamb, king prawns and duck, but also our own British invention of chicken tikka masala. Lunchtimes are slightly subdued with the business of the day, but evenings are more vivacious and warm. The decor is simple, the service welcoming, and the cooking convincing. No wonder Noor Jahan has been a local landmark for nearly forty years.
