Located just off Piccadilly, on Curzon Street, this classy Mayfair restaurant goes big on authentic Indian flavours. However, the menu suggests it's a million miles away from your average curry house, with dishes given contemporary twists.

That means lamb chops marinated in rock salt, ghee, roasted cumin, coriander and dry mango powder, wagyu beef marinated with green chillies, roasted peanuts and yogurt with coriander, and fennel flavoured scallops, pan seared and topped with dill. But if that all sounds too fancy? They do 'frankies', too – a classic Bombay street food. 

The decor is on the fancy side (well it is Mayfair) without being too ostentatious (although there is a showstopper of a chandelier above the entrance). Plus, it wins sustainability points for serving its drinks with steel straws instead of plastic ones.

I was brought here by some friends and honestly I had no idea what to expect because frankly London restaurants these days are either hit or misses.

The food was delicious! Every dish was expertly fabricated and thought out. The flavours kept on going on and on till I almost went to inside the kitchen to confront the chef himself! What a great evening indeed, couslnr recommend this place enough.

I went for bottomless brunch on a Timeout offer and it was brilliant value. For £25 each, you get a main, starter and dessert, sides, a basket of naan and roti to share, and 2 hours of bottomless bubbly or beer.

This Mayfair restaurant is small, stylish and beautifully done, and the service faultless.

I loved the food- proper authentic Indian dishes, aesthetically pleasing and done really well.

Starters were aloo tikki- a cold dish of potato, honey and radish with a tamarind and mint chutney- it was pretty and had interesting flavours but I preferred the dahi bhalla- a lentil dumpling in yoghurt sauce that was divine.

For mains, the paneer croquette was creamy and rich, and the slow-cooked lamb bhuna was spicy and tender. Perfect winter dishes.

Our bubbles were topped up so regularly that our glasses were never empty.

I love it here, it’s one of the best bottomless brunches I’ve had.


Excellent authentic Indian food including many vegetarian choices. After a long time had black dal that reminded me of India. For all foodies it is a must visit.


We were looking for an Indian restaurant in Mayfair and come across a new restaurant called Matsya.. We were pleasantly surprised with the interior design and friendly staff.

I am extremely fussy with Indian food, but I do enjoy eating seafood quite a lot, so I had high expectations. I had asked the head chef Uttam for recommendations and he suggested Gin Salmon with purple potatoe mash, along with naan bread. I had 'balling on a budget' cocktail which was rose, bubbles and caviar, it was out of this world and complimented the main very well. The texture of the food and taste was very well cooked, the spices were delicious and I loved the sauce, cumin and Makhani! For dessert I had the mango truffle, which had different layered textures of fruit, well presented. I really enjoyed trying out these dishes and would come back soon. Value for money and will tell my friends.
