Even though my friends and I were very excited to finally be able to try Darjeeling Express after more than 2 months waiting for our reservation, the truth is that we found it a little bit disappointing. The food is good and the place is nice, but probably we wouldn't wait another 2 months for it again. We also couldn't understand why the service was so unfriendly in general since they seem to be aware that they're not entirely coping with how popular the restaurant suddenly is. You would expect a friendly face when telling you that you're going to have to wait more than half an hour between your starters and your mains... Summarizing, do go if you really want to try it and have your own experience, but maybe don't have your expectations too high in order to enjoy it better.

We had high hopes - came from the US. Food and atmosphere were fine but overpriced. Our starters came out right away, but our drinks were forgotten. We then waited 90 minutes for our entrees without the staff every checking on us. We were really disappointed.

We had two waitresses. One was partially a host and was amazing. The other one who took our order was less than stellar. She was rushing us to order and didn’t complete the order properly. We were missing an item and she had mentioned that we’d have to wait for the chef to complete all the orders ahead of the one we were missing when we already had the rest of our meal in front of us so we declined. Maybe she missed it cuz she was rushing us. Other than that, it was a great experience

It was my mum’s birthday and we had such a amazing time. The service and food were as equally great. I have already booked in for the supper club.

We booked it for lunch and enjoyed it very much. The food took a while to arrive and staff seemed to be ultra busy all the time but we still enjoyed it very much. Would def recommend it to friends and family :)

Awesome that it’s halal, love Asma Khan and her purpose. Great atmosphere. Best starters... maybe could have shared a main (preventing any unfinished food being wasted). 30min delay between starter and main- too long

We were so happy to be able to obtain a reservation while we were visiting London, after reading so many wonderful things about the restaurant. The food was delicious and service was attentive. Not being overly familiar with Indian cuisine, I might have enjoyed a bit more help with the menu from the server, but to be fair I could have asked and I'm sure they would have accommodated.

The Goat Mangho was delicious. The phuchkas were also lovely. We had ordered khatte baingan which were nice and hyderabadi dal which I thought didnt quite bring out the tamarind in it and tasted rather sweet. The paranthas though nice would be nice to have the option of tandoori roti or roomali roti as would have gone better with the curries. In desserts, Bhaap dhoi was awesome although the gajar halwa was too sweet and the carrots not cooked enough. Masala chai was nice. Loved the food overall, was hard to book a table. Also, we waited for almost 45min after ordering for our main course to arrive.

Great menu, lovely food, with quick & friendly service. Only small point would be to put the back story on the menu, or printed card on the table, as it is so interesting.

Fantastic food that just can’t be beaten. I took two relatives who have had Indian restaurant meals all their lives and within the first mouthful they knew they were eating the tastiest food ever!
