2 for 1 at Bangalore Express

Bringing a tantalising array of Indian flavours to London’s Gracechurch Street, Bangalore Express can be found on Corbet Court and extends a warm welcome to curry experts and novices alike.

This invitation is extended to tastecard members, who are able to partake in all of the food served at a superb discount, providing they call in advance with their card.

Focussing on the street food of the sub-continent and the sharing style of dining known as thali, Bangalore Express offers up an array of small plates that are just made for the more sociable eating parties. Steamed chicken dumplings, spiced potato and chickpea flour fritters, and a scrumptious fish tikka are just three of the exquisite options in a collection of dishes that are fit to suit many an appetite, while a range of grilled sharing platters that include a tandoori mixed grill and a deluxe prawn number are already made up and ready to be ordered.

For those that prefer to eat individually, there are also a number of larger plates, such as the spin on the quintessential that is the Anglo-Indian fish and chilli chips, the delectable lamb curry hotchpotch, and the vegetable biryani, that promise to satisfy. Alongside such, a ‘build your own’ curry plate matrix, which incorporates anything from the fiery madras to the mild and creamy korma, ensures that each end of the spice spectrum is met.

Be it for a delightful meal with the significant other, a catch up with a close friend or a treat for a loved one, all are catered for at Bangalore Express.

    Service was ok. Our table was booked downstairs was not open until 6pm which was a shame as my parties came a tad early and had to wait at the bar area. However food and atmosphere was great. We had a few waitors to our table which was a tad unneccessary and confusing. Food was delish would reccommend. The bill was paid away from thr table but one femail waitor had an issue with it and i had to explain myself over and over again but being the customer i can pay at the till if i wish as i did not wanted to pay the bill as a surprise to my table. A male waitor came and understood what i wanted and did as i wished and was polite and effiecient. So it made up for the previous one. "

    " Hi,

    I am a regular customer at Bangalore express. However I had a unpleasant experience on 2nd July 2015. I checked in with my tastecard details. However on finishing my dinner the staff requested for my tastecard membership card. As I was a digital member and did not hold d actual card on me, I was unable to provide the details on the spot.

    This created an embarrassing moment with my guest. Usually it was d case that my memberhsip details was validated by by first and last name and not the card number (which ppl dont usually remember on the top of their head). I would recommend the staff to be a bit more courteous while handling such situations and additionally try to verify details on your end before embarrassing the customer.

    I went to Bangalore express tonight , it was tricky to find it but it's easy distance from monument tube ( 5 min ) . First impression was very good as restaurant is big with two floors and decor was contemporary and there was warm reception by the entrance . Food was good with flavours , wide choices , specially I like duck and fish options on most curries and brown rice which unusual to Indian restaurant ! Service was on time with smile ! Very good value with taste card . I would go again . "

    Phone made reservation fine, turned up waiting for drinks order for a while. Then again a long wait for food service. Asked about the 'tapas' menu and didn't really know what to suggest to me about how many dishes or size. Again a long time to wait for bill then manager tried to tell me we needed two taste cards to get all dishes discounted. He eventually gave the full 2-4-1 reluctantly. Due to the service I will not be returning. Unexceptable as there were only 4 tables being served. "

    " Great for lunch & dinner - shame about the new menu!
    We've been to this place quite a number of times and it is great value on the tastecard.
    The food has always been well cooked and flavoursome. The last time we went everything was overly spicy though! Very disappointed that the lamb shank is now only served with naga chillies :(
    Service is generally slow regardless of how busy they are and at lunchtimes the place gets very packed. At dinner time the place is incredibly quiet.
    FYI - if you haven't been before, the restaurant is hidden away in a side alley/tunnel just off Gracechurch Street (just past Gauchos). "
