Previously I have rated this place 5 stars as it was fantastic. This time they delivered the chicken undercooked and the lamb overcooked. When the chicken was sent back they sent a new one undercooked and charged us full price stating no one else had...More

Ordered take out from here. Decent quality for affordable price around this area, would go back again for a casual meal.

I had their take on a chicken jalfrezi, and being hungry, opted for both keema naan and the special fried rice. It was absolutely delicious. I particularly liked the fact it wasn’t swimming in sauce, the flavour of the rice still came through on the...More

This is a first class restaurant, the cooking is fresh and more imaginative than your average Indian restaurant. We have become regulars and are never disappointed. Do not be put off by the rather unsalubrious surroundings of Battersea High Street.

One of the leading Indian Takeaway & Dine In Restaurants in Battersea, SW11 3JR. We offer the varied delicious tastes and cuisines of India, from homes, wayside stalls and palaces presented in style, retaining its authentic nature. REAL Indian cuisine - which is the specialty of the Varanasi Chefs - is distinctive. It is exotic, aromatic and flavourful, relying on a subtle blend of herbs and spices, and provides an interesting contrast with Curries - the sauce based foods, Chats - the Indian street foods and with Tandoori- the clay oven foods
