This small, sparse café on Islington Green is one of the longest-running entries in our guide. Nothing fancy, but check it out for a quick bite (simple curries and rice) that’s interesting and won't break the bank.

“Decent food but seriously cramped!” – that’s long been the trade-off at this tiny, barely decorated caff, by Islington Green, whose small selection of interesting curries makes it a “great local”.

“Still there, still serving excellent food” – this “cheap ’n’ cheerful”, Islington canteen has seen many of its neighbours come and go. The secret of its success? – a very affordable limited selection of yummy curries. “Easier for take-away than for sit-down as the place is tiny with slightly harassed staff”.

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).
