Noor Jahan has been reviewed several times, and is renouned for its celebrity appearance

My London: Claudia Schiffer (ES Magazine)  
Favourite Restaurant?

My three favourite places are La Petite Maison for amazing French food, like the duck; Nobu on Park Lane for Japanese - my standard order is yellowtail sashimi; and Noor Jahan on Bina Gardens, where the best dish is the lamb pasanda.


Description: There's something special about Noor Jahan that not only attracts big-name eaters - Hugh Grant, Eric Clapton and Rowan Atkinson, but also a veritable army of devoted regulars who make a habit of dining there. Maybe it's the Chef specialities, like the special recipes for chicken, lamb, king prawns and duck, but also our own British invention of chicken tikka masala. Lunchtimes are slightly subdued with the business of the day, but evenings are more vivacious and warm. The decor is simple, the service welcoming, and the cooking convincing. No wonder Noor Jahan has been a local landmark for nearly forty years.

Evening Standard  

It may not look like any old curry house, but celebrities - from Gwyneth to Robbie - flock to the Noor Jahan in South Ken. William Cash tries to beat a path to his regular table

When I read that Gwyneth Paltrow made her first 'public appearance' following the recent death of her father by presenting an awarad to her friend Harvey Weinstein at London's National Film Theatre, I though, 'That's odd,' because only a few nights before, I had walked into my local SW5 curry house and there she was - dressed in black - sitting with a girlfriend at my regular back-corner table at the Noor Jahan in South Kensington. It's easy to understand why Paltrow would choose the Noor Jahan to have a quiet dinner out with a girlfriend. Although in the evening the place can often be more difficult to get a table at than Nobu (at lunch it is empty), the Noor Jahan remains - the place has been going since 1964 - the closest thing in SW5 to a restaurant that also doubles up as a private club..............

Daily Mail  
They are Hollywood's glossiest and most recognisable couple, so when Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie flew into London at the weekend, they were naturally the biggest draw at the Baftas ceremony.

Sweeping up the red carpet at the Royal Opera House under the glare of paparazzi flashbulbs and surrounded by the screams of adoring fans on Sunday night, the couple were the cream of the A-list guests on show.

But their weekend in London began in unlikely surroundings. For after checking in to the Dorchester hotel on Park Lane on Saturday, they eschewed Mayfair's five-star restaurants and went out for a curry.
