“Fresh, zinging flavours”, inspired by the royal cuisine of Hyderabad, set this four-year-old Indian in East Finchley “way above run-of-the-mill competitors”. The converted shop site is “not the sexiest location”, but the “high-quality, genuine Indian fare” attracts diners from beyond the immediate area.

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).
