An Indian restaurant located close to Warren Street and Euston Square tube stations and Euston mainline station, Drummond Villa is popular with the after work crowd, offering affordable food in house as well as a takeaway menu. Efficient quick service in a pleasant atmosphere appeals to the always-in-a-hurry London diners who frequent the Drummond Villa with its unpretentious, clean dining room and well-spaced seating. Food here is typical of traditional British Indian restaurants, the menu an extensive selection of curries spiced to suit the Western taste, tandoori cooked dishes and, of course, all the relevant side dishes and sundries which really do make any Indian meal. Slightly off the beaten track, just off of the Hampstead Road and just two minutes walk from Euston, Drummond Villa is well worth seeking out for decent, realistically priced dining.

Need I say more about the food ?

If you've ever walked Drummond Street you'll know that it truly is a mecca for Indian Cuisine, and while some of the surrounding establishments do serve better food accompanied by a better atmosphere, Drummond Villa is one of the better options that isn't vegetarian (as most of the top Indian establishments on Drummond are)
Primarily, the service at Drummond Villa really is impressive. I was...more
