Kerala Zone Express

I have eaten there 3 times.

Late 2006: One of my best ever Indian meals in London, only beaten by the Babur Brasserie. Excellent, with wonderful use of spices....

But the slowest service I have encountered in years. I think it took about 1 hour to get starters and over 2 hours to get main courses. By that time a couple of my party had given up and gone home hungry. The staff apologised profusedly and said the place was still very new and they would improve.

Early 2007. Food not quite as good as first time but still very good, well above average. Much improved service.

August 2007. Good service but just average food, not as good as several others in the Greenwich/Blackheath area. Several dishes seemed to taste just about the same, as if one standard sauce was being used. Disappointing.

The last few times I have gone past in the evening there were very few people in there. It showed such potential when it opened, and I hope it gets back to a consistent high standard.

It's hard to know what points to give it - some sort of average of my 3 visits.
