This is about the only 'authentic' curry place on the isle of dogs. Sadly it's pretty rubbish by my usual standards and it isn't worth a visit even if you're desperate for a curry.
Such a shame as its just within walking distance of Canary Wharf and could be so much better.
I won't give it 1 star because the service is still pretty friendly and although not super high quality, the portions are very big!
I will give this resturant 0 stars if I can.
Went there last night for a friends birthday, resturant was empty made to sit at the waiting area.... For a while, food arrived 1 hour and a half later, waiters kept forgeting part of our orders especially drinks.
My friends food was half cold, does this mean it was re heated again? Food was overly sweet, did not taste like curry.
When we complained to the staff they just laughed it off! Service was appalleling!! Never again
This more upmarket Indian restaurant looks far more appealing than your typical dingy-looking curry joint... massive windows, high ceilings, a sleek wood interior... even the look of the restaurant's name is more cosmopolitan and polished and aesthetic than your run-of-the-mill curry house...
I'd been past this restaurant several times on Westferry Road, and when I needed to meet a friend for dinner in the Docklands, I suggested we try it out...
Wow. What a disappointment... even though they had the standard Indian dishes on the menu... nothing tasted remotely like anything I've had before - in a bad way. EVERYTHING was *sweet.* And I mean everything, from the chutneys, to my Saag Paneer, to my friend's Chiken Tikka Masala... it was like they dumped a bunch of cream and coconut milk and sugar into every one of the dishes...gag - we felt like we were eating rich sticky desserts for dinner - horrendous.
Upon consulting some of my Asian friends about this, they said that this is typical of authentic Bangladeshi cooking... which I guess if fine if you like and are anticipating that... but me, I like my Indian food hot, spicy, and savory... not so much like weird saccharine curry pudding.
Can't we give less than one star ? I wish we could.
This restaurant looked pretty impressive at first sight. Took a friend, who was visiting London for the first time, out to lunch here. The food was ok ... not too good, not too bad, very average.
What was horrifying was the behaviour of the staff. It was a weekend lunch in South Quay. So as you would imagine, the whole place was empty. Another friend of mine called up. He had had his lunch and just wanted to meet up. We called him over.
The staff wouldn't let him sit along with us unless he ordered something (as mentioned before, the restaurant was empty, so they weren't really missing any revenues). The guy just wouldn't be reasonable, and wouldn't leave us alone. We had already started eating else all 3 of us would have walked out of this disgusting place. Finally my friend decided to order a veg biriyani which he didn't even touch. It was a very very bad experience.
This place, when busy, can actually be a good night out. The food may be s little overpriced for what you get but my wife and I have never had a bad meal... The only problem is it is so so quiet which kind of kills any atmosphere. Try the massala paneer and chicken madras.
Food was ok, service was so and so. Prices are high but thats the area for you. Overall worth a visit but can be missed.
