We know what you might be thinking – ‘Just another lemon tree’ – but no, Lemon Tree in southeast London’s Sydenham is an Indian restaurant with a difference. Dine in comfort in Lemon Tree’s Sydenham Road restaurant with ambient lighting and comfortable chair and table arrangements, dive head first into the incredibly affordable buffet lunch on Sundays, the Wednesday banquet nights, and the Friday and Saturday evening family deal, where kids under ten eat for free! House specialties include the samlo, king prawn, or mixed shashlik, tandoori-baked garlic and chilli chicken, the lamb chop achari, and the special boneless chicken tikka masala – prepared to Lemon Tree’s own secret recipe. Perhaps the most appropriate signature dish on offer, however, is the zamiri or orange chicken – cooked with whole orange for a tangy flavour.
Very nice good service too , good buffet to choose from . I liked the starters and we was the only ones there so we could eat what we wanted from there buffet
We spent a lovely evening here with my sister and her husband. The staff were attentive and the food was excellent. Would highly recommend especially the special deals, great value!
Fantastic customer service. Food extremely tasty, great value for money. Buffet has a lot of variety. Lovely environment with relaxing atmosphere. Great local eaterie. Look forward to returning
Food was absolutely lovely, great atmosphere and staff were very polite, I would recommend this restaurant to any of my friends. Open till late too so no need to rush :)
Good food. Good value. Service a little haphazard. It would benefit the restaurant greatly if the waiters simply remembered who ordered what rather than shouting the names of dishes along the table. A change of cutlery perhaps between courses. And refill wine glasses. Small things that would make the experience more enjoyable. Like I said food was good and I guess that's the most important.
The food was lovely food & the service was very good. At the end of the meal complimentary Baileys given for the ladies & a brand for the gents. Fab!
The food was really nice, found the service slightly rushed. Didn't explain well how the set menu worked for the 4 course meal. Maybe some suggestions next time Overall experience was okay.
The food good and tasty - as their takeaway is. Not quite a 5 as the buffet lunch choice turned out to be rather limited.
