Best Indian Restaurants in London

Long gone are the days of the curry houses in Brick Lane dominating the Indian food scene in London. Here are some of the best Indian restaurants in London:


Dishoom is an amazing Bombay cafe in London paying homage to the Irani cafes which welcomed all and tried to break down barriers by bringing people together over food and drink. The popularity of Dishoom has spiralled with five new openings in London – Shoreditch, Covent Garden, Kensington, Carnaby Street and King’s Cross.

The food is consistently amazing, both their breakfast naans and their a la carte menus. The Keema Pau, a classic of Irani cafes with spiced minced lamb and peas and a toasted, buttered home made bun (£5.90) is a MUST order. Also, the House Black Daal cooked over 24 hours (£6.20) is the best daal I have tasted!

Gunpowder focuses on the vibrant, bold flavours of Indian food with locations in One Tower Bridge and Spitalfields. The menu features smaller and larger sharing plates and has a selection of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes. We loved the Gunpowder aloo chaat (£6) which had great textures and flavours. Another favourite was the Spicy venison and vermicelli doughnut (£5) and the fennel and chilli chutney accompaniment was a real winner. Definitely one of the best Indian restaurants in London!

Cinnamon Kitchen

The Cinnamon Collection has been established since 2001 with Cinnamon Kitchen opening its modern Indian restaurant in the city in 2008 in Devonshire Square. Head Chef, Vivek Singh, is keen to transform traditional Indian cooking to create dishes ‘beyond authenticity’. There are so many great small plates, Muzzeh (any 3 for £12.50) and Tandoori & Grill dishes to choose from. Tuck into as many as possible and share!

Baluchi is a pan-Indian dining restaurant in London within the Lalit hotel, set in the historic Grade II listed former St. Olave’s Grammar School in the Great Hall. Chef Jomon was funny, passionate and you could see his passion for the food, and his team, shine through throughout the whole evening. We loved the The Naan’ery experience at the bread bar (£55 for solo, £99 for two) at Baluchi, featuring four courses of bread with accompanying dips and wine, followed by a tiffin to share.
