Wow, people so far have given this place good reviews. I am honestly shocked.
This is by far some of the worst Indian food I have ever eaten, and I've been to some pretty crappy Indian restaurants over the years.
The service was mediocre at best, they were a little pushy and not exactly polite or friendly.
The menu. Someone here said it's varied and has a good choice?
Have you ever been to a real Indian restaurant? The menu is terrible, the selection of curries is very narrow and they don't even have peshwari naan.
I ordered the butter chicken, my friends ordered the korma and the lamb thali. The butter chicken was passable, but the chicken was a little strange and the rice didn't taste freshly cooked. The garlic naan was strangely flat and false tasting. Not nice and light and fluffy as you'd expect.
I tried the korma and the thali as well. The thali was passable too, not good, but edible. The korma on the other hand, wow, sinking to a new level of terrible. It tasted like one of those microwave curries you'd get from a supermarket for a quid. The sauce was horrible and the chicken had chewy nasty bits in it.
If you want good modern Indian food in North London, try the Tiffin tin or Dinnerbox.
If you're going to eat out on Upper street, why choose this place when there are so many great, real restaurants in this area?! (the fig and olive for example is brilliant)
