Awesome- love this place
Delightful evening, delicious food
I appreciated the home-style food - a welcome change from the offerings in many Indian restaurants. It was good to see Bengali dishes on the menu. Next time I will come with a larger group, so I can sample more dishes.
I came here for my works team Christmas dinner, the food was delicious, everyone commented on how much they enjoyed it! The only element that could have been slightly improved was waiting times for drinks, we would order more bottles of wine and it would be quite a while before it arrived.
Between the outstanding food and the wonderful staff, this is far and away the best Indian establishment in London. There really is no comparison and nothing more to be said.
Enjoyed the starters. Limited selection of vegetarian mains. All dishes were very good bar the beetroot croquettes. Good service too.
Great food, authentic food, great taste! Super service Thank you had a great lunch!
Cosy space but a little loud. Most of the servers are warm and friendly, but service is inconsistent. Highlight is definitely the food - I keep coming back for the puris!
I thought the staff were lovely. The man who served us drinks was friendly and even found time to have a bit of a chat with me when i was really busy. I think the lighting/decor is okay but not 5 stars- not sure I would describe it as 'beautiful surroundings'. The atmosphere was buzzing and fab all the same. Food was amazing and the menu was a joy to choose from. I have raved about it to all my friends and will definitely be visiting again asap!
To be able to see into the kitchen is superb and it is so good that founder Asma Khan is so on hand to give guidance and recommendations. An absolute must go.
Great value and slightly unusual take on Indian food. Highly recommended!
Lovely! Brilliant place, wonderful staff, delicious food. I’m still dreaming of that aubergine curry - can’t believe it was vegan! Thank you for having us.
Another fun evening with my family. Thank you for my husband John’s surprise birthday dessert! Love the home cooked feel of all the dishes and particularly enjoyed the vegetarian starters especially the tamarind water which reminds me of Sri Lankan rasam. Great atmosphere. We will be back!
I've dined here many times in recent months and it's always brilliant on every level. Highly recommended.
The food was delicious!
I absolutely loved my experience here from the service to the atmosphere to the wonderfully delicious food. I have already referred several friends to go to Darjeeling Express. Thank you for a lovely evening!
Wonderful , stunning food! Lovely staff including the owner. Thank you for the lovely roomy window table for the two of us. We’ve eaten there twice now and will come back for sure.
Excellent food and service with a smile! Could not find a fault at all. Will definitely be back.
Simply amazing! I've lived in London for 8 years and this place is undoubtedly my favourite place!
Great place, fantastic food, My second time and coming back again in January. My only thing is I'm a hungry boy and would like a slightly bigger portion ;)
Excellent food!! The price is right too. Cocktail menu is great too.
A group of us traveled to England from Boston for the wedding of two friends. I'd heard about the restaurant and Asma Khan in some articles about the upcoming season of Chef's Table and made a reservation for four. At the last minute, the two brides were able to join us and we were able to expand our reservation to 6! We were thrilled. Our cocktails were delicious (love that spicy martini!), the food was exceptional, and we were so impressed by the friendly, attentive service. Our server even surprised our newlywed friends with a carrot halwa with a candle. It was a very special meal. Thank you! I don't know when we'll be back in England but I hope to dine at your restaurant again.
On the whole the foid was fresh and delicious and I would dine there again. However the halva dessert, although delicious, was far too small for the price. Two of the starters - the chana chaat and the papri chaat shouldn't be on the same menu. We should have been advised not to order both chaats.
