Named for the Roomali roti bread that’s one of its menu mainstays, Anirudh Arora’s small group aims to bring Delhi-style ‘tapas’ to Theatreland, Marble Arch (in a smart, if slightly “sterile” hotel dining room) and – most recently – Paddington. Feedback is more limited than we’d like, but once again speaks of “superb food”.

Anirudh Arora’s two-year-old, north Indian, street-food café on the West End’s ever-bustling Shaftesbury Avenue also has a new outpost in a smart hotel dining room, near Marble Arch. The duo’s title refers to classic Roomali Roti: bread, hand spun into thin sheets, cooked and folded into a ‘hankie’, and both branches win praise for “great food at a relatively small price”.

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).
