10 reviews of Memsaheb on Thames in English
We are proud to be able to deliver great tasting food at affordable prices and be recognised for this by receiving awards and accolades.
We are located very close to Crossharbour DLR and Canary Wharf is only a 5 minute cab ride away. We are also very close to Bllingsgate Fish Market so we get very fresh fish and can also source to order if there is a special treat you are after.
Every weekend we have a special menu available and offer a Sunday Lunch sitting too. Our menus are available on our website and we have an online ordering facility for takeaway collections and deliveries (within 2 miles).
We will do our best to meet any special requirements you have – please feel free to either email or call us. We can cater for parties and large groups and offer special menus as required.
Come try us out!
The restaurant is located very close to the river and about a 7 minute taxi ride from Canary Wharf. Good menu of traditional dishes from all over India so lots of variety and flavours.
It appears as well that the owner is a friend of Deliah Smith who is actually an extremely famous and revered cook/chef in the UK, she has taken one of the head chef's recipes and included it in one of her books! So that's the dish we tried which was delicious - Lamb Xacuti - was nicely spiced and really flavoursome with a rich sauce which went well with both the steaming hot naans and the individual long grains of white basmati rice.
We also had the rich spicy garlicky tarka dal which was also excellent - just beware of the pieces of whole chilli in there - next time we will request medium hot! Its making my mouth water writing this!
Definitely a restaurant to try out, its so close to Canary Wharf yet calm and peaceful. The manager also said that you can preorder if you are in a rush and they will do their best to keep everything ready. Really reasonable prices too, we will be returning.
After having a stressful week in one of the busiest city of london, one needs to have a calm and soothing environment where we can enjoy every bit of the ambeince around and most admirable delicacies of Indian food, Memsaheb fits perfectly in the above scenario. The varierty of dishes they serve, the aroma of genuinity which swings throughout the restuarant, makes this one stands out from rest of all the resturants around.
Highly Recommended !!!!!!!
Great restaurant, friendly staff, delicious food - very much recommend the lamb varwhal, spiced chunks of tender lamb cooked with crunchy pulses and served with a fresh salad delicious!
I can see why this place is so highly recommended and Delia Smith's favourite indian - definitely worth a trip.
What a remarkable night I had at the fantastic al fresco dining experience I had with Memsaheb on the Thames- I am so glad I had a chance to experience their Indian seafood on the terrace unique experience – it such as shame that this fantastic offer is coming to an end on the 12th of September. However I must say their wide variety of seafood – whole or filleted – and ranging from sea bass, sea bream, black cod, halibut, lemon sole, red snapper and pomfret to lobster, crab, prawns and tiger prawns, customers are being given a choice to have their preferred fish grilled, fried or steamed in full view. A choice of sauces will also be available to accompany the seafood, including garlic and butter sauce, medium spiced, or very spicy. The plated dish will be served with roasted seasonal vegetables and a choice of rice or bread. I hope to get a chance to come dine soon before the seafood festival ends.
This is not your standard curry house, the food presented here is full of subtle and complex flavours and seasoning. The food is cooked to order and cooked as a whole, rather than meat and sauce separately as is the case with a number of places. This really shows through due to the infusion of the flavours in to the meat/seafood/vegetables.
We decided to make the most of the more traditional Indian menu on offer and ordered a mix of classic favourites and more exotic dishes. None of these disappointed with all the dishes being particularly good - the new dishes we tried were unlike any Indian we’ve tasted before, which is always a positive.
The decor is clean and tidy (toilets are basic but hey it’s restaurant not a restroom!), my only slight criticism on this side is the ease with which other people’s conversations permeates the atmosphere. That I believe is more to do with the quiet and questionable (pop) background music rather than the tables being on top of each other.
Food was presented beautifully in a welcome stylish/contemporary break from usual restaurant-fare that also had an element of homeliness about it. This certainly didn’t go unnoticed and made the generous portions more enjoyable.
We had a 2 course meal plus alcoholic drinks with the bill coming in around the £40 mark.
I would rate Memsaheb as one of the best Indian meals I have had, and my girlfriend went one further as to suggest it was the finest she’d come across.
Definitely will be going back (partly as we are so local) and looking forward to when they have the seafood barbecue going again in the summer.
The décor of this place is brilliant – it is done with style and has an intellectual and cool feel to it, something you would not expect in an Indian restaurant. The menu has a huge choice of different dishes, as you would normally expect with an Indian there is an equally large selection for vegetarians. Although I’m not quite sure why you would bother! The food tastes absolutely delicious and the staff are so friendly and helpful. I really do love it here!
