This high-profile but “reliable” Kennington curry house has become a local institution under owner Kowsar Hoque, an entrepreneurial vascular surgeon whose father founded it 37 years ago. “It’s a bit of a club but anyone can join and will feel welcome among the politicians and media people” (former PMs Gordon Brown and David Cameron have both dined here). “Prices are a little above average but this is not your standard curry house”.

Kowsar Hoque’s Kennington fixture is “definitely not your regular curry house” – whatever your game. If it’s cricket, it’s “the only place to enjoy a meal post-Test at The Oval”. If politics, it’s “famous for its popularity with politicians from all sides: you’re quite likely to find Ken Clarke eating alone reading The Economist”, while David Cameron had his ‘last supper’ as PM delivered to Number 10 Downing Street.

For “curries a cut above the average” – and the chance to spot MPs from nearby Westminster – this Indian local in Kennington “is a vote winner”. There’s a “buzzing ambience”, with “the owner a convivial ringmaster”. Top Tip: “avoid cricket days as it is very near The Oval!”.

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).
