“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”.

“Surprising” flavours help “put a great spin on Indian food” at this “tiny” Spitalfields yearling, whose “fantastic tapas-style dishes” seem “completely authentic, based on family recipes”. Top Tips – “venison doughnut” and “wild rabbit pulao – a thing of beauty”.
