“BOOM! Excellent, sometimes-fiery fare” (“they don’t hold back on the spicing”) “hits the spot” with “great creative flavours” at this duo of Indian tapas-style haunts. The “tiny”, “so-noisy, full-on and not-so-relaxing” original sits near Spitalfields, while the “bigger” (but also “buzzing and noisy”) second branch near Tower Bridge is the better-known nowadays, similarly well-rated and “handy for the Bridge Theatre”. Top Menu Tips – “superb lamb chops and sublime venison doughnuts”.

“Home-style Indian tapas”“beautifully spiced, without overpowering the flavour of the ingredients” and “each plate a unique reinvention of a traditional dish” – lures sizeable queues outside this “cosy, if slightly cramped” two-year-old “tucked away 150m from Spitalfields Market”; a second branch opened in the shiny new One Tower Bridge development at the start of September 2018. Top Menu Tip: “the spicy venison doughnut is inspired”.

For 30 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).
