Food was pretty flavourful, especially enjoyed the paneer. Venison doughnut was not as life changing as other reviews would imply.

One of the best meals I had during my short time in London. My friend and I came here shortly after opening on a Friday evening, and were able to secure the last two seats at the bar right by the door. Soon after, we heard the hostess quoting 1-2 hour waits. The space is not large, so seats are limited, and what seats there are are situated almost right on top of each other.
