“Good all-round” is the general verdict on this five-year-old take on Indian street food, inspired by a well-travelled Indian grandmother’s magpie approach to recipes – so there are Gujarati tacos and a chicken tikka variant on poutine, the French-Canadian fast-food specialty.

“Innovative, delicious food in a great, fun setting” is the order of the day at this colourful Indian tapas spot with two siblings in the Big Smoke; “the menu changes regularly with different regions added so it is a great way to try different cuisines”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
