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. However, I still think this is no match for Brick Lane where the food has more punch and the portions a little bigger. After spending £12 I was still hungry and felt like I only had half...more

The colonial vibe, cheap beer and friendly staff are all fantastic here, and if you're happy to put up with duff food for the sake of a fun night out then go for it, but I won't be returning. The food was just too mediocre - the lamb madras was the only dish of about seven that I sampled which stood out.

There are many overused phrases and cliches in the English language.

One that I use too much myself is " the mother of all-whatevers"

Well, this really is the mother of all Indian restaurants. Literally.

This is the first Indian restaurant that ever opened in the UK - probably in the early 50s, and the decor has not changed much since. The early patrons were the exiles from the Indian...more
