Peter Joseph (raised in Chennai) “has maintained high standards and always delivers value for money” at his culinarily “interesting” Indian venture near Sloane Square (behind Cadogan Hall), where he uses a robata grill and tandoor to “delicious” effect. “Initially, we thought it was an unpromising basement, but it was one of our best meals of the year”.

Ex-Tamarind exec chef, Peter Joseph’s “real classic of an Indian” is tucked away in a tastefully decorated basement near Sloane Square (behind Cadogan Hall). Peter was raised in Tamil Nadu, and achieves “an exceptionally high standard” using British ingredients to create light, modern dishes with a focus on grills from the robata grill and tandoor. “Although it’s a pricey curry, you certainly get some bang for your buck!”

Ex-Tamarind executive chef, Peter Joseph (raised in Tamil Nadu) is cooking up a storm at his “smart” September-2018 two-year-old, “tucked away behind Cadogan Hall” near Sloane Square. Even a reporter who considers it “expensive” feels “it’s certainly amongst London’s Top-5 Indians”, and there’s little but high esteem for its “refined”, “thoughtfully prepared” cooking: “distinct and light” dishes featuring “favourite flavours but raised to a fine dining experience, including a tasting menu option”.

For 33 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).
