Staff were friendly and accommodating. Food was amazing, so glad I found this little gem! As a bangali person, dining at a curry house means it HAS to be good, grand trunk did not disappoint!

The best meal I’ve ever had in my life. My boyfriend finally was elated as it reminded him of home. Thank you so much. I will certainly go back soon.

We had an amazing meal at this restaurant.. We were a party 10 altogether and everyone enjoyed their food. Drinks were great also. Service always good at this restaurant. Cannot wait till the restrictions are over and you can eat inside.

Glad we could finally come again. The food was excellent as always. The smoky raita, applewood cheddar and truffle naan and the koftas were particular standouts but we enjoyed everything in general. Thank you!

Had a lovely meal outside sheltered from the street and kept warm by heaters. Service is always great and so is the food and drinks. Good to be back.

The food is authentic and full of flavour. I particularly liked the lamb chops and chutney. The biriyani took me back to my time in Mumbai and I loved the bread top. The service was also exemplary. Pukka!

The three lentil dal a little underwhelming. Both the paneer and kofta dishes came with the same sauce. I think the waiter should have said mentioned that.

Hi It was recommended to us by a friend, being a chef myself I was very excited but I was very disappointed there is no seasoning in anything and is hyped for no reason.

Felt uncomfortable with waiters standing over you while you eat. Felt rushed to eat and leave. Not relaxing, as waiters are constantly clearing the table around you. Food is great though.

Lovely food and you get what you pay for However they’ve just changed the starter talapia and the portions are mean and smaller and saltier. Potato and spinach cake needs more seasoning. Cocktails / mock tails have too much ice and Are overpriced.

Sumptuous, sublime, sensational. This is the finest dining experience, and the finest Indian fine dining experience, in London. Grand Trunk Road is as far removed from your local curry house as Le Gavroche is from Nandos. The finest ingredients, perfect cooking by a renowned chef Dayashankar Sharma, and service worth of the Savoy. If you have not been yet, go! If you have been, you are already going again. Highly recommended.

After the second lockdown we could wait to go for a nice dinner, we had absolutely no hesitation in booking The grand trunk for our first meal out again! The service and quality of food is beyond exceptional! So much do that it’s always our first choice when we take friends or clients out for dinner. Thank you to all the staff at The grand Trunk.
