I am disappointed with Kailash Parbat for not being able to deliver food at home on Friday evenings despite advertising to do so. This is the third time in a row on a Friday when their driver is absent. They are just fooling people by saying that they can do home delivery whereas they are just not capable of doing this. I stay less than 3 miles from the restaurant. And for the third time they have said they can't deliver. Please take off the ads stating that you can deliver food at home on Weekdays. This is utterly misleading & disheartening.

It’s rare to find Sindhi food in London: the rich, earthy, hearty, subtly spiced dishes of Pakistan’s Sindh province. The cuisine is influenced by Central Asian, Middle Eastern, Punjabi and Rajasthani cuisines, and by the dishes of the neighbouring Kutch district of Gujarat. Named after the eponymous mountain peak near Tibet, this small, buzzy venue isn’t a Sindhi restaurant as such, but a franchise of an international Indian vegetarian chain renowned for its Sindhi dishes.
Sindhi kadhi – a beautifully spiced, golden pool of chickpea flour gravy studded with chunks of potatoes, carrots and vegetable drumsticks – was given depth by tamarind and curry leaves. Dahl pakwaan, a popular Sindhi breakfast dish, is split chickpeas served with crisp circular fried bread, whose bubbled surfaces resemble craters of the moon.
We also loved the arbi tuk: fried colocasia (taro) pieces flattened and sprinkled with ground spices. The bright, vibrant flavours of seyal chaawal also won us over – the rice stir-fried with caramelised onions and tomatoes. Koki, a rustic flatbread stuffed with onions and chillies, was another success.
Aloo bhendi sai masala – literally potatoes and okra in green herb gravy – divided opinion, with its dominant mint flavour and mushy texture. Even less successful were lotus root fritters with their eye-watering chilli hit and out-of-balance spicing, and the bland Sindhi pakoras cooked in too-thick batter that tasted a little stale.
The restaurant is smarter looking, with slicker service, than most Gujarati, South Indian and Sri Lankan venues that characterise the area. Avoid the generic dishes and stick to the Sindhi specialities – andnote that ‘Sindhi kadhi and dahl pakwaan are only available for Sunday lunch, when they’re traditionally eaten.

Some good dishes but chart platter at £8 is a rip off. Today was our 3rd n final visit. We thought after previous two bad service experience, they may have improved. But untrained waiters forgetting to place order n waiting for starter for 30 minutes was final straw. This restaurant needs new management and Mumbai trained waiters who are used to serving 10 tables at a time and never make mistake. On this day there were only 3 tables occupied but service was still terrible, seems waiters are just there to earn a living and not interested in serving the customer. Unless they improve they will not last long.
I have been here once 2days back and I was surprised to know indian cuisine is further divided. There are things beyond curry. I had had my first chinese influenced indian panner dish called Panner Chilly. I never knew indian cheese can be made to taste that best. The crispy spicy potatoes were the next thing that took to me to all new spices. The service was exceptional. Passion Juice was so natural with bits and seeds. I was given Pann the green sweet stuff leaf was so good that I was breathing fresh till evening. I will be back soon to try some more curry and Indian starters.
