Sag Paneer

Was in London for a night and desperately wanted to get some Indian food. Found this place on OT and it was pretty solid. Great South Indian dish and friendly staff. I also liked the setting quite a bit- it is a bit hidden down an alley and the restaurant is downstairs from street level. Candle lit tables are a... more

The food was ok, it wasn't particularly exciting and the portions weren't particularly good. The beer... more

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
