    Unfortunately the service wasn''t great. We had to ask twice for cutlery, tap water was refused as a ploy to buy a drink and the waiter's manner was very unwelcoming. The supervisor towards the end of the dining experience, apologised for this and was lovely. Due to this, we will return but hopefully the waiters would have changed. "

    Tonight's food was below average sadly. The menu was good although not a huge selection.

    The main issues where: the beer was advertised as 660ml and infact it was only a pint. The food had good flavour but the chicken was dry and tasted frozen without marinade. We order a side of okra which only arrived as we where finishing our mains It tasted like it was microwaved rather than cooked properly.

    The atmosphere was stagnant and music was upbeat.

    The staff where very nice and accommodating but the food let it down.

    It won't be high on our list to visit again. "

    Food wasn't bad but I paid much more than I usually pay. "

    Tonight I attended with my wife having previously been here with a large group of people. Again we were welcomed warmly and shown to our table. The service was fantastic. I returned because the food was lovely. Again tonight, different dishes, but again lovely tasting food. Shall definitely return again and I'd recommend others to try if you haven't. To use the tastecard was very easy. Also when advised at the start of the evening when we arrived there was no worries and our host for the evening who is delightful man explained the whole use of the card. If I could sum up in one word - brilliant. "

    " I really wish I could give no start to this Takari. One of the worse place claiming to have authentic indian food. They have advertised themselves to be participating restaurants of taste card. When I first called them for table reservation I was informed that I can come immediately as they have seats but when I told them about the taste card I was informed that Manager has strictly asked not to take any taste card member before 5PM so I left that day.

    Today I booked a table and went to dine it. I ordered onion bhaji & samosa in starters & it did not have much taste really. The serving plate was chipped & I asked to replace it but no body bother to change it. I was not even offered a glass of water. The food I found was overpriced but lacked taste and quality. Since We are vegetarian and we went for veg curry. I ordered one chilli paneer as main dish and aloo gobhi (Potato & cauliflower) as sides along with chapatis. They are charging the twice the price for main dish then side. But to my utter surprise the portion of mains & side was exactly same. Chilli Paneer was okay but when I took a bite of cauliflower it was really raw and uncooked, I left it as there was not point of eating raw vegetables. I had no courage to try any other dish so I decided to leave the restaurant.

    When I got the bill to my surprise I got cover charges.They did not offer me the service I paid for but charged fully. I am really frustrated with the food, its quality and behavior of staff. I will never even go to this pathetic place called Takari. "

    " Very expensive restaurant. The portions are very small, the rice was served in a small, flat triangular plate and there wasn't even a heap of it for £3.50, same for naan bread, cut up in small pieces so it doesn't look like it was a full-sized bread.
    The starters were all over £6 which is pricey for a couple of onion bahji. A pint of flat Tiger beer was £6.45 and a bottle of water was also about £3.95. The total left us speechless and triple checking to see if they'd added extra dishes or even included the discount. They happened to charge a hefty £22 service charge. The total was £20 per person for a drink a starter and a main. Basically more expensive than what I normally pay for bigger portions and more comfort at my delicious local.
    We paid it all but will not be going back. Oh and the table was broken and the table was really cramped for 7 of us. "

    " We found the food tasty but the portions were rather small. The saag paneer was very odd. The waiter didn't open the wine bottle and had to be asked for water 3 times, but was friendly. The atmosphere was good but the toilets could some tlc.
    Probably wouldn't return due the small portions and high prices. "

    We are still in the restaurant but I was keen to put my review onto Tastecard. The food is freshly prepared and very tasty:-) my vegetarian sabji balti was delicious. Our friends tell me that their meals were cooked to perfection. staff are very friendly and helpful. My husband's pasanda was the best he has eaten he tells me! As my readers willl know I like clean. The toilets leave a lot to be desired. They are clean but definitely need a zzuzz. The black carpet and blue light on the stairs don't help. Definitely worth a visit. We will visit again! "

    Went here a couple of weeks ago as I was starving, it's close to work and I was lazy to cook. The staff were very friendly, helpful and attentive. The food was nice, but unfortunately the portions were TINY and the price was so high that even with the discount it's still too expensive. A biryani and one meat samosa ended up costing me £12.42 and that was WITH the discount! I only went there for a quick cheap dinner but ended up having to buy something extra on the way home because I was so hungry! "

    I have eaten at a lot of Indian restaurants in London and all over India but Takari definitely stands out for me. I visited the restaurant over 5 times in my 4 week visit to London and I was delighted every time during my visit, whether on a weekday for lunch or on a busy weekend for an intimate dinner. The ambiance and service at Takari is perfect for a romantic meal with your partner or even a nice quiet dinner with your loved ones.

    I came across Takari in Covent Garden by coincidence - since my German friend and I was heading in the direction of our theater and needed a quick dinner beforehand. We could see that Takari was popular - so went in and asked for a table. The staff was extremely friendly and sorted something out for us immediately. The waiter gave us an excellent guidance to the food and even if I haven't booked up-front they accepted the Tastecard without problems. The food was beautiful - so I was so please that we just happened to dump in to this little pearl of an Indian restaurant. I am normally not a big fan of Indian food - but this was just excellent. Would highly recommend the place. "

    We decided on book at Takari as a convenient post theatre dinner venue and it did not disappoint. The standard of the food was excellent and service was good in spite of the restaurant being full. It is noisy with mainly hard surfaces that do not absorb sound. Also the tables are close together so not recommended for an intimate dining experience. Whilst not a cheap restaurant, it does represent good value. We'll be going again. "

We also had the buffett on Sunday afternoon and this was also fantastic, the description of buffett doesn't do it justice it is more like a tasting menu, try it you definately will not be dissapointed. We ate at L'estranger on the Friday night and there is no comparison the food at the Takari is so much better. The Takari is one of the best dining experiences you will have and we are already looking forward to our next visit. "

  • Dominic said: "Utterly, utterly dreadful in every way.
    We arrived on a Saturday afternoon in December and were instantly warned that there was a one hour limit on tables. Which is fine; it's Covent Garden at Christmas...

    And then it started to go downhill. After 30 minutes our food hadn't arrived. The waiter did apologise however, and shortly after, it appeared. I just wish it hadn't.

    If only they had asked us to leave or something, or even just refused to bring our order. But they didn't. And so arrived a bowl of watery slop (Tarka Daal) and another bowl of tasteless dishwater (saag paneer), both were vile. The 'curries' were worse. I, disastrously, had a lamb something which I can only assume had been made by the chef's great, great grandmother during a period of war-time rationing and stored in a flavour vacuum ever since. The butter chicken did have chicken in it, although that was its only saving grace.

    Until you tasted the chicken, then it didn't have any saving graces anymore. Two naan breads; one peshwari and one garlic, both of which were identical in their blandness and two rices finished the disaster off.
    One pilao rice and one coconut; both bright white, both totally tasteless, both identical.
    I thought that I could drink my way out of the misery, so ordered a beer. Surely they can't get that wrong... It never arrived.

    I love Indian cuisine, but I'd rather go through the bins than eat here again. "

    My sister and i visited this restuarant last night and were utterly shocked by the poor quality of the food and the tiny joke quantities smothered in uncooked sauce. We could have forgiven an odd bad dish out of the five we ordered between us- however each dish was terrible. ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING. Would not eat there again even if you paid me! Service was strange as the waiters were awkward and abrupt and uncommunicative and kept loitering about the table. Still reeling from the fact that we had to pay for something so terrible.

    For the paneer dish we received a small bowl of colured cream with FOUR pieces of paneer - probably a sqaure inch each and about a tablespoon of uncooked peas. The chicken Jalfezi was half a chicken tandoori brast with uncooked onions - half a sliver of pepper and too much spice. The potatoes - three new potatoees halved. the prawn dish - more uncooked onions and a tablespoon of readycooked prawns hidden amongst limp salad. Mixed starter was half a kebab an onion bhaji and a tiny samosa. Rice was clearly microwaved and the naan tough. I am applled that this establishment think they can get away with this kind of behaviour.

    Even with the tastecard the price was high and frankly quarter portions of BAD uncooked food - if you can call it that. We were so hungry we had to go somewhere else for a snack. Please don't waste your time or money - most importantly if you expect a decent meal you will be sorely disappointed "

    The food was so tasty and the service was spot on. I've had Indian food plenty of times but Takari was by far the best. I wish I had found this restaurant before. You honestly pay for what you get. If you want cheap then go find a cheap place. Don't complain and make excuses after. Takari uses the best cuts of meat, poultry, and the finest spices and have a 5 star awarded chef.

    It really explains why the food is so beautifully prepared and served.

    I would definitely be back. "

    Ate here the other week and to say the least was very disappointed! It took almost 1 hour to serve the mains after the starters had been served. The bill was also incorrect and had charged us for things that hadn't been ordered. Overall, a very poor experience. "

    Really disappointing experience and food seekh kebab was dry and uninspiring, chicken dopiaza had more potato and chickpeas than chicken and was initially served cold before I sent it back.

    The staff were also poor, incapable of serving a party of 10 simultaneously with people receiving part of their order then having to wait significant amounts of time for the rest of it.

    The bill wasn't unreasonable with a tastecard but would have been very overpriced without. "

    " Visited last night and used tastecard. Still very expensive for what it is and the quality is poor. Tasteless and very salty. £6.95 for a beer and they added a £7 service charge. Felt quite ripped off. Far better indian restaurants around the area. "

    " After being in Central London and finding ourselves starving and fancying a curry, we hit the Tastecard app to see what we could find! Takari came up with pretty good reviews so thought we'd give it a whirl! All in all, the food was nice and flavoured well, but wasn't amazing. Portion sizes were average, as was the ambiance. Be warned - no chilli sauce at all available to dip things in AND they sneakily charged us £3.95 for TAP WATER! It was fine for the price with Tastecard, but we personally will stick with East London/Brick Lane from now on. "

    From the moment we walked into Takari, we were made to feel so welcome. Compliments to the outstanding staff, the Head Chef and his staff and all who made our Takari experience so memorable. The food was sublime and attention to detail incredible. What a special way to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. We certainly had an evening to remember. "

All 3 courses plus the little extras were all top quality and I would love to revisit for dinner in the future. "

    Was on way to Soho to our usual place but just decided to try Takari, we'd been planning this for a while.
    We were greeted with a friendly hello and shown to our table. From the outset they made us feel welcome and it just kept getting better. They have a wide range of drinks but we went with the traditional Cobra and 8 poppadoms and chutney, first time I had poppadoms and coconut chutney it was so nice and fresh very tasty and impressive. The Cochin Bakara and naan was just as good. I can honestly say that every dish that we ordered was as good as we have had anywhere or better. None of us had a single complaint about anything. Takari really is a brilliant curry house, just wish we'd done this before.

    The tastecard makes Takari even tastier. Seriously the food was brilliant and it lives up to its reviews. Great place, Brilliant Value, Friendly staff and brilliant atmosphere. "

    Just wanted you to know that this is the first time I have been to this restaurant and I wish I had found it earlier. The staff are brilliant and friendly made us feel as though we were their regulars. The menu is just right with a good selection of dishes. We ordered the 2 mix platters between 4 of us and it had a good selection of all the starters, all of it tasted fresh. The mains were just as good if not better, it all tasted nice and fresh with just the perfect spices. With the tastecard discount it's better than value for money. Our overall experience is that they care about their food and their guests. "

    Wow, my dinner with friends at Takari was just amazing, the service was polite and the waiter (whom might I add is from Venezuela was charming) and knew all the dishes and gave us just the right amount of food for the table. The mix Tandoori platter was perfect for our table as it had a selection of everything, the portions were perfect as well. All the food tasted so fresh and spicy (not spicy chilli hot) but spicy saffron, Cummins etc. The main dishes were piping hot and tasted just right, I've had chicken Rogan josh before but Takaris is the best I've ever had, the nan bread was so soft and fluffy and delicious. All the food that we ordered was perfect and so delicious that I would definitely state that this is probably the best Indian food that I've had.

    I would recommend Takari for those who love tasty authentic Indian food not just cheap food (you pay for what you get).

    The tastecard offer makes this restaurant a must for all foodies.

    Unfortunately the service wasn''t great. We had to ask twice for cutlery, tap water was refused as a ploy to buy a drink and the waiter's manner was very unwelcoming. The supervisor towards the end of the dining experience, apologised for this and was lovely. Due to this, we will return but hopefully the waiters would have changed. "

    Tonight's food was below average sadly. The menu was good although not a huge selection.

    The main issues where: the beer was advertised as 660ml and infact it was only a pint. The food had good flavour but the chicken was dry and tasted frozen without marinade. We order a side of okra which only arrived as we where finishing our mains It tasted like it was microwaved rather than cooked properly.

    The atmosphere was stagnant and music was upbeat.

    The staff where very nice and accommodating but the food let it down.

    It won't be high on our list to visit again. "

I returned because the food was lovely. Again tonight, different dishes, but again lovely tasting food. Shall definitely return again and I'd recommend others to try if you haven't. To use the tastecard was very easy. Also when advised at the start of the evening when we arrived there was no worries and our host for the evening who is delightful man explained the whole use of the card. If I could sum up in one word - brilliant. "

    " I really wish I could give no start to this Takari. One of the worse place claiming to have authentic indian food. They have advertised themselves to be participating restaurants of taste card. When I first called them for table reservation I was informed that I can come immediately as they have seats but when I told them about the taste card I was informed that Manager has strictly asked not to take any taste card member before 5PM so I left that day.

    Today I booked a table and went to dine it. I ordered onion bhaji & samosa in starters & it did not have much taste really. The serving plate was chipped & I asked to replace it but no body bother to change it. I was not even offered a glass of water. The food I found was overpriced but lacked taste and quality. Since We are vegetarian and we went for veg curry. I ordered one chilli paneer as main dish and aloo gobhi (Potato & cauliflower) as sides along with chapatis. They are charging the twice the price for main dish then side. But to my utter surprise the portion of mains & side was exactly same. Chilli Paneer was okay but when I took a bite of cauliflower it was really raw and uncooked, I left it as there was not point of eating raw vegetables. I had no courage to try any other dish so I decided to leave the restaurant.

    When I got the bill to my surprise I got cover charges.They did not offer me the service I paid for but charged fully. I am really frustrated with the food, its quality and behavior of staff. I will never even go to this pathetic place called Takari. "

    " Very expensive restaurant. The portions are very small, the rice was served in a small, flat triangular plate and there wasn't even a heap of it for £3.50, same for naan bread, cut up in small pieces so it doesn't look like it was a full-sized bread.
    The starters were all over £6 which is pricey for a couple of onion bahji. A pint of flat Tiger beer was £6.45 and a bottle of water was also about £3.95. The total left us speechless and triple checking to see if they'd added extra dishes or even included the discount. They happened to charge a hefty £22 service charge. The total was £20 per person for a drink a starter and a main. Basically more expensive than what I normally pay for bigger portions and more comfort at my delicious local.
    We paid it all but will not be going back. Oh and the table was broken and the table was really cramped for 7 of us. "

    " We found the food tasty but the portions were rather small. The saag paneer was very odd. The waiter didn't open the wine bottle and had to be asked for water 3 times, but was friendly. The atmosphere was good but the toilets could some tlc.
    Probably wouldn't return due the small portions and high prices. "

    Wandered into this restaurant whilst staying at nearby hotel.
    Service good if a little too swift. Food very tasty. Starter ( chicken chat) beautiful.
    Popadoms were soft..maybe damp.. Perhaps cooked in batches and hanging around.
    Very hot. Air con packed in, so uncomfortably warm. Pity the poor chefs in the kitchen. "

    We are still in the restaurant but I was keen to put my review onto Tastecard. The food is freshly prepared and very tasty:-) my vegetarian sabji balti was delicious. Our friends tell me that their meals were cooked to perfection. staff are very friendly and helpful. My husband's pasanda was the best he has eaten he tells me! As my readers willl know I like clean. The toilets leave a lot to be desired. They are clean but definitely need a zzuzz. The black carpet and blue light on the stairs don't help. Definitely worth a visit. We will visit again! "

    I was so impressed by the quality and taste of the food, it really was exceptional. I had the lamb tikka bhuna with saffron rice with garlic nan. The freshness and quality of ingredients just oozed. The Atmosphere is something that I haven't experienced in any Indian restaurant, it was so upbeat. The waiters were friendly and charming and didn't try to sell up. They were knowledgeable about the menu. I would definitely recommend Takari to those that love Indian food. "

    Went here a couple of weeks ago as I was starving, it's close to work and I was lazy to cook. The staff were very friendly, helpful and attentive. The food was nice, but unfortunately the portions were TINY and the price was so high that even with the discount it's still too expensive. A biryani and one meat samosa ended up costing me £12.42 and that was WITH the discount! I only went there for a quick cheap dinner but ended up having to buy something extra on the way home because I was so hungry! "

    I have eaten at a lot of Indian restaurants in London and all over India but Takari definitely stands out for me. I visited the restaurant over 5 times in my 4 week visit to London and I was delighted every time during my visit, whether on a weekday for lunch or on a busy weekend for an intimate dinner. The ambiance and service at Takari is perfect for a romantic meal with your partner or even a nice quiet dinner with your loved ones.

    I came across Takari in Covent Garden by coincidence - since my German friend and I was heading in the direction of our theater and needed a quick dinner beforehand. We could see that Takari was popular - so went in and asked for a table. The staff was extremely friendly and sorted something out for us immediately. The waiter gave us an excellent guidance to the food and even if I haven't booked up-front they accepted the Tastecard without problems. The food was beautiful - so I was so please that we just happened to dump in to this little pearl of an Indian restaurant. I am normally not a big fan of Indian food - but this was just excellent. Would highly recommend the place. "

    We decided on book at Takari as a convenient post theatre dinner venue and it did not disappoint. The standard of the food was excellent and service was good in spite of the restaurant being full. It is noisy with mainly hard surfaces that do not absorb sound. Also the tables are close together so not recommended for an intimate dining experience. Whilst not a cheap restaurant, it does represent good value. We'll be going again. "
