The India


Bringing exclusive Indian gastronomy to London, The India Restaurant serves 'vintage Indian cuisine' in an intimate underground setting. Filled with cosy leather armchairs, flickering candles and whitewashed ceilings, guests can enjoy refined Indian cuisine in one of the trio of cosy dining rooms. Paying close attention to detail, the chefs hand-pick, dry and ground spices in house, giving the dishes a unique, intense flavour. We close on bank holidays and sunday.

Firstly, what a great name for an Indian restaurant. In a busy city full of restaurants and bars there will be no confusion as to what kind of food you'll find in this little gem.

Located close to Cannon Street tube station, this isn't normally an area I'd head to for a meal with friends. However, we ventured this way, tempted by 50% off with a Tastecard and decent reviews both on Tastecards...more

The actual venue of this Indian restaurant is the star! It is underground, low stone ceilings, you feel like you are in a vault! pretty coool!

The Food is pretty standard Indian, nothing exciting, prices are moderate.

It's central; near Cannon street so gets a regular busy crowd.more

The India is hidden away, just down the street from the Cannon Street station in the basement of a large building.

The atmosphere is dark and kind of "nightlife-ish" with a few separate rooms containing a bar, a long thin dining room with flat screen TV, and music in the background.

Food was decent Indian food. Our table had the standard Indian fare: chicken masala, tandoori, etc etc. All...more
