This is a 2nd floor hole in the wall. Not much on decor and the service was slow. A perfect place to really relax with friends and very tasty food in the big city. I guess if you want bells and whistles, this wouldn't be for you. Down to Earth and easy.more

The staff told us that this was one of the oldest Indian restaurants in London. Hm...

This place is not badly priced for the theater district.. and perhaps a quaint hidden place to go before or after a show.

As everyone has mentioned, this place is old, and it...more

We went here before catching a show at the Adelphi theater. It is a great little place tucked up on the 2nd floor of an old hotel. Apparently it has been there since 1946. The service was nice and the wait staff take their time so you can enjoy yourself. Don't come if you're going to be rushed for time, it will ruin the experience.

The food was great and if you aren't familiar with the menu,...more
