London is home to some of best Indian restaurants to be found anywhere in the world – arguably the best outside of the subcontinent itself – and when we’re talking about Indian food in the far West, then we need to talk about Memories of India in Osterley. They’ve got long memories for sure, as they’ve been based on Thornbury Road – hidden behind Osterley tube station – for over 30 years, and they boast a local, loyal clientele that proves the old adage that there is no recommendation like longevity. Take a trip along Great West Road and turn off at Thornbury Road, before getting out and entering Memories of India, where you will be met with a menu packed with all the tandoori favourites, classic curries and superlative sides to be expected, as well as their own house signatures. We’d plump for the lobster malia curry, with crustacean cooked in a creamy sauce and served with cashew nuts and aubergines if we’re going for the specialities. Book a table now and choose for yourself.
One of the things I look for in a restaurant is can it cope with two 6 footers and one person who is 6ft 5"? Memories of India did, there being plenty of space between diners and the chairs were very comfortable. The service was excellent -attentive waiters but not forceful. The food was very good indeed, and the decor unusual but very appealing. Highly recommended.
This is always a pleasurable experience,it has everything ! A warm welcome,first class service,very attentive staff and of course excellent cuisine ! Top notch !
The venue, food, service,and the friendliness of the staff couldn't had been better. No doubt we will be back in the not too distant future!
our experience was exceptional with the food, service and venue. Amazing food. Incredible service. Relaxed atmosphere. Took some guests there for New Year's Eve party although it was very busy, we didn't have to wait long for our food to be served. Very highly recommend.
Busy Friday night with several birthdays going on Excellent service and very good food Lamb passanda was not as mild as expected BUT was quickly changed Other dishes great. I've been going occasionally over many years and delighted that it's standards are maintained. Must go more often!
very pricey - need to reduce slightly - food was excellent, service a little slow, understand was busy but staff did not come back and ask regularly if we needed anything and each time we needed to order drinks or food we had to call out to the staff.
The food was lovely, staff very friendly ideal for parents with little kids. Beautiful atmosphere, would be recommending this restaurant to my family and friends.
A reasonably pleasant experience. Service became a bit slow as they got busy and our desert did not come for nearly half hour. Reminded again.
