The team behind the hugely successful Flavors of India group of restaurants are rightly proud of their popularity in London. At the Paddington incarnation on Gloucester Terrace, Craven Road, diners are treated to the full Flavors experience, complete with kitsch Indian bus in-situ in the dining room. This flagship restaurant is ground zero in the Flavors empire, opening first in 2006, with the Hounslow and West End branches springing up in 2009 and 2011 respectively.

1st visit. Have eaten in a number of Indian restaurants in the area and this was one of the best. The food was excellent and great value for money. Service was efficient though it could have been friendlier. A smile would have been nice, hence rating 5, not 6.
Lovely food and fantastic staff. A little bit slow bringing out the main course but worth the wait! Very helpful manager - recommended a dish for me and promised to switch it if I didn't like it. It was gorgeous! Definitely will go back again.
A gem of an Indian restaurant, just a few minutes walk from Paddington station. The menu offers a wide range of dishes, many not often found in the average Indian restaurant.
Excellent food and great service Went with family and the food was really good Authentic Indian taste Going again today with my family and friends
The service and food were both outstanding! I highly recommend Flavors of India!
