London Sizzler is just The Best Indian Restaurante in The USA. Food is delicious and prices are very reasonable! The place is cool and The Staff are the must attentive you will weber experience. We been going there for the last 8 years , at least every 2 weeks and we absolutely love it!
Best Indian food in town. – Been going there for a couple of years. Our favorite indian food. As good as Kirin but less formal. We usually order too much and end up taking some home. Last night we had 9 drinks, (4 during happy hour-till 7), 3 hhour appetizers, 2 main dishes, 3 naans, 1 indian coffee and 1 giant brownie desert for five adults. We were stuffed and the total was $20/person+tip. Everything we've had there, except for the indian ice cream, was perfect. Rice is included with main dishes and they go a long way. And really nice people.
Flavor good, but not for price – Just home from there. The service was good, the ambience was good. The three of us split 2 meals, a curried vegetable dish and the butter chicken. I thought this would be plenty, because of the price of the dishes (around $9-$11 each) We paid extra for 2 servings of naan.
When it was brought out, it was 2 small bowls of the main dishes and 2 small bowls of rice. The curry sauces were made well- tasty. HOWEVER there was hardly anything IN the sauce. Sparce pieces of chicken and in the veggie- NO VEGGIES, a few bits of tofu (from what i could tell)- and we were still hungry afterwards and the naan was burnt.
NOT a good deal for over $30, I expected to at least have some veggies- more SUBSTANCE.
Delicious happy hour for Indian food! – We love London Sizzler. The food was delicious and I wouldn't hesitate to come back. The biryani is tasty, the saag paneer is creamy, the chicken tikka masala a little on the sweet tomatoey side, and the naan bread so yummy... damn, I'm hungry now. (see photos) Located in the same shopping strip as Himalaya, I think these two restaurants have the market cornered when it comes to the best Indian food in town.
Love the food – Great Indian food at a reasonable price. a good restaurant to introduce newbies to Indian food.
Love this place! – Great food, never dissapointed. Do try their Chilli manchurian and ofcourse sweet lassi. Love the ambience. Friendly staff.
Good Indian food in a nice setting – London Sizzler is a Indian restaurant at Hillcroft and 59.
It is more upscale than a lot of the other selections in the area - they have a full bar and several flat screen TV's - its nice to have a beer and watch sports while I wait for the food to get ready.
I typically pick up about once every other week and over a period of time have sampled a good portion of their menu.
All of the standard dishes like saag paneer & chana masala have been very good
What's best though, in my mind, is some of their "out of the box" dishes. They have really excellent naan rolls and their new lamb "boom" masala was definitely something I'd get again. If you like spicy give the pili pili dish a try - its otherworldly hot.
Not sure what the previous reviewer experience was, but in the dozen or so times I have visited this establishment I have found the waitstaff/barstaff to be very friendly and very helpful.
After having tried 10 or more Indian restaurants, I have finally found one I can recommend to friends!
Great food but very unprofessional bartender – I went there few weeks back and like always food was great but I did not appreciate the bad attitude of the bar manager. I heard him use profanity multiple times with other staff, throwing a tantrum like a little child. He was not very friendly and seemed intoxicated and this is not the first time i have seen him do it. I still love going there but the days when i dont see the crazy guy behind the bar. Reading other reviews shows it that I am not the only one who experienced this.
Worst food ever !!!! – We went to this place yesterday ,we ordered panner balti & naan etc.I am not exaggerating but if you know the indian food test then this was not even close ! Gravy was very thin food was completely tasteless ! way more expensive than what you find in other places ! we did not even bbother to pack the food for to go !I wasted my money ! I strongly urge find another place ...even if you have to stay hungry ! I have heard that they have good haidrabadi biryani ..but haven't tried....punjabi food was awful...!
London Sizzler: Restaurant from your worse nightmare – Up-scale chic restaurant which is rather on the expensive side. What do you expect when you go there? Friendly service, great food lovely ambience?
Well London Sizzler will be a crashing downer to all your high expectations.
I for one had a real time experience of that one. Me and my group of friends went there to try out this much coveted restaurant. It started out pretty well, I had an appetizer, Chilli Paneer, my friend decided to go with Lamb Kaboobs.
Later on our group expanded so we asked for another table. They lied on my face informing me there are no tables, so I pointed out an empty table. They rather grudgingly shifted us. This is where the horror began.
I ordered a main course, Malai Kofta with rice. This being my favorite vegetarian dish, I have tried it in a few Indian restaurants, all which boasted none of the greatness that London sizzler boasted.
After about an hour later (yes we were there forever) the dinner finally arrived
To my disappointment it tasted just plain bad. It was too sweet and did not have any salt or spice for that matter. It was just veggies floating in butter syrup. All the other dishes were palable. Including the chicken. The “Spice” factor seem to be their cost-cutting agenda.
I started feeling sick, so I tried to excuse myself, asking for my cheque. The waiter rather rudely informed us “We do not split cheques”. I tried to get some help from the manager, and guess what; he was ruder and informed us to write down our calculations of what we eat behind the bill. (which took forever to arrive) . When complaining,about their service he told us to not come back and they do not care. ( YES! You heard that right and it’s a quote, I got witness)
The cheque was $33 (No alcohol) they added 18% Gratituty. Yes it is compulsory that you tip their bad service. (wonder why?!)
I continue to have bad allergic reactions and throwing up all Friday and Saturday, when my doctor informs me I had seafood. (I am badly allergic to seafood). Of-course the paneer chilli was fried in the same oil as shrimp.
DO NOT GO THERE, unless you want to pay for your own nightmare! Never going back and would advice everyone I know to stay away!!
Shehnai which is a standard buffet service has better food and service and you pay them $10 for all you can eat!!
