The food was premade and then microwave heated. I had the black daal, there was almost no flavor. Staff was very nice, so that's a plus. Okay food for the price.

Tried a few different dishes in a takeaway order. Both the chicken tikka masala and the chicken saag were cooked well and tasted good, but they also had a lot more heat to them than at many places. In fact, even though my wife usually loves those dishes, after a couple bites of each she decided that she was done. The beghan barra (eggplant dish) was less spicy but a little oily. Garlic naan and plain naan were both great.

The restaurant itself was neat and tidy and well organized. The man at the counter was friendly. For better or worse, the food is all pre-made -- it makes the service quick, but you can't ask for a milder version of the dishes.

Home cooked food.
It is not fancy and very small. Many locals get takeouts.
They use high quality ingredients and do not skimp on the quanIt’s of meat in their lamb and chicken dishes.
Very plain atmosphere with great food

Don't be misled by the outside appearance! The food is fresh, well cooked, delicious and best of all nicely priced!

Served by a lovely couple and always a pleasure and treat to visit their restaurant!

My preferred local Indian! Never a bad experience!

Thanks for delicious food!

This is down a little side street off the main drag virtually opposite the main entrance to Earls Court tube. I came across it whilst browsing for an inexpensive light supper. It is cafe style. Food is all apparently made fresh on the premises each day. Great range of meat and veggi/vegan dishes. Freshly made naan bread. Take away or eat in. The two lady members of staff were a bit brusque at first...they seemed rather tired(!) but pleasant enough as I left.
