One of three Woodlands restaurants in the London area, this one is stylishly decorated and inexpensive, and manages to look more upmarket than the other value eateries on Panton street, with warm yellow walls and contemporary coloured lights. Attracting vegetarian arty types, the menu will also impress Indian food lovers. While it features curries, the focus is more on the house speciality of Dosas and Uthappams. Dosas are like crêpes made from a batter of ground lentils and rice with a variety of fillings, while an Uthappam is a sort of South Indian pizza. Both are delicious, and make a flavorsome change from curry, curry or curry, especially as some of the more mainstream dishes can be a little salty.
am a resident of Twyford in Berkshire and I frequently visit London for movies, food and shopping. Myself and my husband, we have been to Woodlands on Piccadilly a few times, ourselves and with our friends.
I take this opportunity to write that I have always been slightly disappointed with the quality of food and the service in the restaurant. However, yesterday, when we were there with our friend, we were extremely disappointed, so much that I thought that I had to do something about it.
The service was done with the least care possible. Thought I understand that it was a busy periods and I am quite understanding with respect to that. However, a few things were beyond the explanation of being busy. We were sat on a table for good 30 minutes before we asked someone to atleast give us a menu card. We ordered and then we sat there for another 45 minutes with no food. Finally the food was served with a very careless attitude. Waiters had no table/serving manners. They were very careless with their attitude. We had ordered for a Paper masala dosa and we got a paper dosa, which was owever rectified promptly by providing the masala separately. Food was cold and prepared with little care. We requested to be served water more than 3 times and it never arrived. We were really amazed at the level of service provided and left the restaurant very disappointed.
To summarize, it is saddening to see the quality of food and service go down so steeply and I hope something will be done about it.
This is simply one of the best Indians in London, up there with Rasa in Stoke Newington and Punjabi in Covent Garden.
Gorgeous food - The London Tali is recommended. Clean environment, good service and a decent whine list.
I take my girlfriend there regularily and have also taken our entire team from work (12 people).
The restaurant is vegetarian and caters for vegans. Meateaters (I'm one) will not be dissapointed.
