We went on good friday 2012 (apr 6th). I am writing a review on all the websites hoping they will improve. This is a tired looking restaurant so do not believe the pictures on their website. Food was very mediocre. The Mixed grill starter was cold and tasteless. The chicken tikka was white? and there was only 1 seek kebab which was dry and tasteless! The plates with the Khan’s livery were clean but tired with marks around the sides. We ordered a full chicken. Normally this takes time to cook and is made fresh with a marinaded full chicken. At Khan’s they just took 4 leg pieces and 1 breast piece from a previously prepared chicken which was over coloured and they simply just heated it in the microwave and put on a plate. Mixed grills normally arrive sizzling hot with fresh ingredients. Not so here. The best thing was the chips! which the children ordered. We were going to walk out after the starter but mistakenly decided (giving them a final chance) to have the main. We ordered the chilli chicken and the chick peas curry. The former was too hot, tasteless and over coloured red! For the latter, the chick peas were not cooked and still hard. The best thing we had were the starter poppodoms with the 4 different sauces. This is the first and last time we will go to this restaurant. There is a 10% service charge which is not optional as it automatically added to your bill. Staff service was OK and relatively attentive, but then this was about 6.15pm and it was not very busy.
Mediocre food with menace! So we have been eating at Khans for about 3 years now, ordering once a month or so. Its nothing special just standard Indian food, sometime not even. We only order because its convenient. That is until tonight when I ordered, it took about 2 hours to arrive, when it did I got a phone call from the delivery driver saying he was on out on Edgware road and could I come and collect it from him in the rain?
I am home on my own, my 2 children are in the bath and I live on the 19th floor, not to mention that Edgware road is a good 2 minute walk from the bottom of my building. I said no, explained I couldn’t and asked him to come to up, I explained that he was in the wrong the street and how to get to the correct street. Anyway, after 15 minutes he had not buzzed, so I called the restaurant, I explained what had happened, he was unapologetic and said I should have gone to get it from the driver like it was my fault? He then said he was banning me from delivery ever again and said good luck to me. I was absolutely gobsmacked, why would any restaurant be so unreasonable and lose a steady customer? Anyway suffice to say STAY WELL CLEAR OF KHANS!
Excellent place just hidden round the corner at the end of Bayswater Street. Its a massive restaurant inside, with a weird sky-blue ceiling and palm trees painted on the wall, but the main attraction here is the food, which is also extremely good value for money.
If you're looking for a posh, high end Indian restaurant to entertain business clients, this is not for you. But if you're looking for a filling, delicious cheap meal, then this is perfect.
Khans is also halal, does not serve pork or beef at all, with all their meat either seafood, lamb, or chicken. They do have a wide variety of vegetarian dishes as well.
I've come to loathe this place! Dragged here on too many occassions to eat toxic looking sauces, strange textured meat, abrupt staff and random delivery of dishes.
Go to the nearby durbar it is soooo much better!

Great Indian!This is one of my favourite Indian haunts in London…. I went 20 years ago as a student and then visited it again last year on a Sunday lunchtime and recalled how good it was. I have since been back afew times however, maybe its my age….but I do prefer it at lunchtime/early evening rather than a Friday / saturday night. That’s when the waiters do become slightly rude and more harassed!The food is great - good Indian cuisine - I like the biryiani’s - great sauces. Do remember it doesn’t serve alcohol, however there is a good pub on the corber for a few drinks before hand! You see…perfect Sunday afternoon!Great value too!
Khans has more of a following because of their name than anything else.The staff’s attitude is as if they are doing you a favour. It is a nice large venue in case you are a big group or having a function. The view of all the dirty dishes while eating your meal isn’t the greatest one.
The food isn’t bad but more attention could be paid to service, decor and general cleanliness.
The best thing that they have going for them is their location.
I would rather go to a place in Whitechapel like Lahori Kebab House or Tayyabs any day.
As this restaurant was recommended to us by good friends, I was quite disappointed when it did not live up to expectations.
It was a Sunday night and although busy, our order was taken promptly. The vegetable samosas were fresh, crispy and very tasty. A good start. Then we waited… and waited… and waited some more. Loads of people who had arrived after us were served their main courses before us. It gave us time to appraise the decor, which is ok, but overall the harsh lighting spoils the atmosphere, making it seem more like a canteen.
I had chosen a vegetable biryani which, when it eventually arrived, consisted of unappetisingly tasteless rice with what looked like frozen vegetables through it. These were overcooked too! There was no accompanying tasty sauce, just a dish of raita. I have eaten Indian food all over the country and this was probably the worst dish I have ever been given. The rest of the dishes were not as bad as this and I am left to wonder if this was just a blip.
Really like this place. Its reasonable but delicious food. I always go for butter chicken in this place, the best I have ever had anywhere else. Have it with the buttered nan and its real good. Starters are nice too, go for the mixed grill which comes sizzling. Tandoori is a bit too red for my liking (the type that stains your fingers) and the pina colada mocktail is superb! Used to always make the trip down with uni friends from central london. Can get really packed at times, best time is probably lunch time, to avoid queues. You can always pop round the corner to one of the cafes for some nice dessert afterwards
I used to live across the road from Khan’s, and still to today continue to go back there for meals. If possible try to sit in the front portion of the restaurant as this is the nicer area, with it’s great interior of artificial palm trees and a painted sky.
The menu is massive, and every dish (that I have so far tried) is excellent.
Located along Westbourne Grove, Khans is a cheap, and reasonably tasting Indian restaurant. I always seems to pay just around £10 and come out feeling stuffed with a curry, vegetables, rice or naan and a drink filling me up.
Alcohol is not allowed in this restaurant so enjoy some of their other unusual drinks (mocktail mixtures) or one of their tasty lassi mixtures.
Sometimes you have to wait for a table but it’s not unusual that you get seated immediately since they have a lot of people and things seem to flow very quickly. Some of the waiters help this along by sometimes being a little bit pushy but when you’re paying such a small amount, it’s understandable.
Always found this place to be clean and well kept. Staff are friendly and the food is great. Nice to go as a big group as they are very accomodating. Decor is on the tacky side but in a good way as it adds to the atmosphere!
Very popular, extremely cheap Indian restaurant, serving really authentic cuisine in good size portions.
If you want an authentic Indian dining experience in this popular spot with good atmosphere, then this is the place.
As they mention, they don’t serve Alcohol, but the alcohol free Cobra is ok, and the food more than makes up for the potential short coming.
