I ate at Delhi Grill with friends. We commonly go out for indian food in London, and the dishes were good, but not noticeable great compared to other places we have been.
I wasn't a huge fan of the restaurant's atmosphere and we had to wait a while for someone to take our order even though the restaurant was fairly empty. I really didn't like how the dishes came at separate times - naan came...more

I went there for dinner, chose it based on the Yelp rating score and I wasn't disappointed. Very friendly staff and tasty dishes.

Food was decent, had daal which tasted like it should, a curry. I will go again, but because it's close!more
