Summary

“A stalwart of the Forest Hill dining scene that’s worth a trip into SE London!”. For over 20 years, this surprisingly “exotic” modern Indian has “had people beating a path to its door” on account of its “delightful service” and some of London’s best Indian cooking – “eye-catching”, “subtly-spiced and aromatic” dishes “with intense and unique flavours”.

Summary

“Long live Babur!” – this “stand-out” stalwart remains one of SE London’s most notable stars, with an “ever-evolving” menu of “cracking Indian fusion dishes” served by “lovely, friendly and personal” staff in an “understated” and “lively” setting.

Summary

“It’s curry Jim, but not as we know it!”; this “fabulously inventive” Honour Oak Park fixture is “in a different league from your standard Indian” and – despite a fractional slip in ratings this year – remains one of SE London’s top destinations.
