Absolutely outstanding & easily the best curry i have had in London. A reduced number of choices on the menu results in absolutely delicious properly cooked food. I really believe that the use of ingredients & particularly spices results in an absolute taste sensation. A great meal in a great location.
We were very disappointed with the menu as there was only the set menu available at £45 each with no choice of starters. Having paid exorbitant amount of money for just one main curry and chickpeas all the left over food had to be wasted as we were told that they did not have containers take it home. Perhaps this restaurant is not for locals but for rich tourists
Phenomenal! A wonderful experience!
£8 for a small bottle of Kingfisher....
Food was excellent. But a complete rip off.
Staff attentive. Overpriced , not as amazing as it thinks it is!!
Went for my wife's birthday. The food and service were excellent. The chef came out for a chat and there was live music from a fabulous singer in the bar upstairs.
Drinks a little on the pricey side but you are in a central London hotel.
Well worth a visit.
Friends and I went to the Curry Room because all of the trendy fancy places were booked. Man, did we luck out! The food is top quality and you can taste the love and care that goes into every dish. Great service, amazing ambiance, great food, great drinks and wine---and only 35 bob. We'll be back!
We were treated like honored guests from the minute we stepped into the restaurant. The manager explained the menu, a fixed price, three course dinner. He explained that each of the main courses were designed to represent a different region or style of Indian cuisine. And he described the cooking techniques and flavor profiles. We chose two from different styles. The flavors were wonderful. Presentation was beautiful. The value was outstanding. We are both experienced in Indian cuisine. This was a great experience.
Some of the best curry I’ve ever had in my life!!
Absolutely wonderful meal! 3 course tasting menu--would highly recommend the lamb curry, butter chicken and cheesecake, although all of the choices were delicious!
Loved everything about it!!
First off we were not aware the restaurant was in the lower level of a hotel, so it took us a while to find it. Once we located it and went in we were seated in a back corner and were greeted by our server who was quite attentive. Ordered samosas and drinks, samosas were quite dry and the beer was warm, so not a great start. Then we had our main course of lamb and butter chicken, both were quite good and they even made an attempt to get the beer colder! Have to give them points for effort. Overall not a bad experience.
Nice Indian food, nice room inside the Rubens hotel with really nice staff
Very good service. Amazing food! Very romantic setting for girlfriend birthday dinner!
Amazing food amazing service. recommend the vindaloo
Great location in the Rubens Hotel. Wonderful service and delicious set menu. Amazing samosas and pappadums to start with- made in the kitchen!
The food was so flavorful and delicious! The atmosphere was also so romantic and very personable. I would definitely recommend this spot!
Excellent for the second time. Superb food, interesting menu, great atmosphere and exceptional service. Try the vindaloo.
The service was so slow!!! It took us 3.5 hours to get out of there with a set menu. It’s in the basement of the hotel and obviously the kitchen is far away. Also, we asked for not spicy food, and they assured me they would do their best with all the dishes, but not one out of 5 was bearable on spice.
Great decor and attentive service. Much easier to have a conversation in than many other restaurants that are so noisy. I think it's the thick carpet and upholstered chairs that help. Beef in the curry was unpleasantly fatty which was a disappointment so I left most of my main course - something the waiter didn't pick up on.
A lovely meal at a very reasonable price for the food. The wine list is on the pricey end although the bottle of wine we had was fantastic (Their own vinyard and the Hannibal Red). The restaurant is situated in the basement area of the Ruben's Hotel opposite Buckingham Palace mews. Great location but the bar is London premiere hotel prices which rather offsets the value for money of the food.
Overall a thoroughly enjoyable meal with fantastic service and lovely ambience.
A hidden gem. This restaurant is warmly decorated with deep armchairs, soothing lighting and cosy furnishings and lots of space between the tables. The set 3 course menu was delicious, the pork vindaloo a real eye opener (try it!). It's not be open long but the food standards seemed very high for this price, we paid 35 per person and felt we had a bargain.
Good wine list favoring lighter whites. The waiters were attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. The room isn't obvious when entering the hotel, you need to go through the bar. We were lucky to be serenaded by live lounge music from the bar giving it a lively relaxed feel. Strongly recommend.
Excellent flavors, well prepared food. Nice atmosphere with live music from the bar above the restaurant. Overall, very enjoyable!
