Harden's survey result
Perhaps “the best of the bunch among the Indian restaurants along Drummond Street near Euston” – this “no-frills institution” has served a “varied South Indian vegetarian menu” to a mixed crowd of students and office workers for the best part of 50 years. Its “terrific value” (and BYO policy) means it can be “too crowded for comfort”, but while the interior is “sketchy” it’s a joy to any style anoraks who want to know what a late 1960s canteen actually looked like.
“Still around after nearly 50 years”, this “battered-looking” south Indian veggie canteen in the ‘Little India’ stretch behind Euston station is “still dishing out some of the best dosas, thalis and vegetarian snacks in London” – and still at a “low, low price”. Top Tip: BYO.
“The best bargain meal in London” – an “incredibly good lunchtime buffet for very little cash” – is to be found at this battered veggie “institution”, in the ‘Little India’ behind Euston station. “You can’t beat their de luxe dosas” and the eponymous Bhel-Poori are also well worth a try, but “forget the decor!”. “I’ve been coming since 1972, and it’s always a safe bet!” Top Tip – BYO.
“An institution” of Euston’s ‘Little India’: this “never changing” veggie canteen wouldn’t win any prizes for interior design (unless the category was for authentically ’60s decor). It has survived for decades on its “delicious dosas”, and is known for its “excellent value buffet lunch”.
