Great food but it seemed you were struggling to cope with the number of tables. Service was too slow.

Food superb. Grew up in Bengal and the Bengali based dishes are phenomenal. Drinks esp cocktails need improving - are the bartenders drinkers themselves?

Food was really good but quite little for the cost. We had a very long wait between starter and mains. When the table next to us was being cleaned we were sprayed with the cleaning product.

I cannot recommend Darjeeling Express enough. It is without doubt my favourite place to visit. The food is simply divine and I could never tire of it. Thank you to you all for creating such magic in your kitchen.

The atmosphere was wonderful until someone turned the music on! Then the room was too loud for conversation. But the food was divine. It's expensive, but so worth it.

Preferring vegan options over most other food groups there is never normally much of s selection but here I felt spoilt for choice!! Will have to come again so I can try the dishes I didn’t on my first visit!! Both of our waiters were very lovely men, friendly, warming and made us feel at home!

Last time I came the tables were very close together so I was very pleased that you have made some layout changes and it felt better. The venison kofta was very spicy and I thought there were a lot of whole chilliest in the dishes. Last time it was possible to taste the clever slicing but this time I thought the chilliest were a bit overwhelming at times. However overall loved the food and am sure I’ll be back.

Loved everything about this experience, from walking through a buzzy early evening crowd enjoying summer London in the revamped former warehouse, to the cooler calm of this light small restaurant. Fun exciting short menu, with outstanding drinks, good portions, and above all food that was fresh, flavourful and subtly spiced.

The idea of untrained but experienced cooks is appealing & these women are quite brilliant. The menu is thankfully short & you know everything on it will be cooked with love & attention - and so it is! Not cheap, but not bad value for this part of London.

It was a lovely meal but £65 for 2 people is I think quite expensive. Currys for £16, maybe I'm not aware of the price rises but it seems a lot to me, moving the food up to another level especially given the service levels which were good if not great. Good food but for me, slightly too expensive. Stops if becoming a must visit London restaurant.

Some of my fellow diners have stated it was the best Indian food they have ever eaten. The prawn Malaikari was absolutely fantastic. Music was quite loud on arrival but we asked for it to be turned down and it was with no problems. Really lovely feel to the place, wonderful food and service impeccable. Will be back.

Amazing food. Traditional with a contemporary flair. Food and service exceeds your peers - eg Dishoom Love the story, an inspiring leader and great to see the excellent work that you do in supporting women and the wider community.
