The hair found on your dish was about 15 inch long. it was on top of the half eaten Motor Ponner not mixed into the dish. We showed it to you. You accepted the... More

Visiting the area for first time and fancied a ruby , restaurant was busy a good start , food was good , flavoursome and hot. Did get the impression the staff were a little disjointed as to tending to their customers but still a pleasant meal. Would use again...

4 of us came here last night and had a lovely Indian meal. The food was excellent, we were at first a little wary as we got given stale poppadoms but they apologised brought new ones straight away and the rest of the food was just simply delicious. We ordered the special chicken tikka masla (which doesn't look the normal... More

If you are visiting the area, this Indian Restaurant is the best around - it is not as cheap as some other Indians but the prices are not expensive either. It has a lovely interior, great staff, quick service ( They are always extra... More

It is a long time that I have written a review but we visited here last night and had a fantastic meal. I started with Chicken Chat and then went for a Balti dish with Garlic Nan. I loved every mouthful and cannot wait to go back. It really was that good, better than going to Brick Lane. Okay, people... More

Staying in Southwark

Neighbourhood Profile
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighbourhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
