This is an elegant, upmarket restaurant offering customers the best of North Indian cuisine. The entrance features photographs of some of the celebrity diners to have graced it over the years, including a satisfied Elton John. The three-course thalis will set vegetarians back around £8 and meat-eaters around £10 - both ensure a really palatable banquet of a meal. Vegetarians are particularly well catered for by the extensive menu. Common Indian dishes are made a little more special by the use of the freshest ingredients and extra care taken in their preparation. The downstairs Officers Club accommodates 20 people for special occasions.
The outside of Lancers looks very unpromising -the building is shabby and there's a huge banner outside proclaiming the name of the restaurant. However, as soon as you step inside, the warmth of the welcome more than makes up for the exterior.
The food is delicious - we had chicken rogan josh, mushroom bhaji and nan. The service is attentive but in a nice quiet, unshowy way. I've been to much more self-consciously cool places, but I keep coming back to Lancers because of the old-fashioned charm and the quality of the food. Warmly recommended.
