- “The East India Cafe is extremely special. The menu is small but perfectly authentic. The service is beyond exceptional, you really are treated like royalty.”
- “If you have yet to experience this formidable yet intimate, premium yet authentic restaurant then you should consider going at your soonest opportunity. Put simply it is absolutely awesome from the moment you enter to the moment you leave. Food is brilliant, ambience as close to India as you can get.”
- Simply fantastic food, service and ambience. The best Indian food that we have eaten in the UK. Every course was excellent, as were all the little extras. Each course came with an explanation.”

Authentic dishes with wonderful ingredients, a relaxed atmosphere and attentive staff.”
