“Really different” Indian cooking and “quirky decor” – which celebrates the Victorian-era Scottish botanists who collected the subcontinent’s flora – combine to good effect at this Earl’s Court four-year-old. “After a few wobbles having taken over these premises from Mr Wing (RIP), the kitchen has really found its mojo – and now turns out spot-on flavours every time”. One of its many unusual features is the brevity of its menu by comparison with most curry houses.

“Really delicious modern Indian cooking” is making its mark at this three-year-old in Earl’s Court, which is further differentiated by its “surprising steampunk decor” – a tribute to the intrepid Scottish botanists who catalogued the flora of the subcontinent in the Victorian era. There’s a “good selection of wines by the glass as well as bottle”.

“Hitting the spot after a few false starts while transforming from Mr Wing (RIP)” – the former long-term occupant of this two-level (ground and basement) Earl’s Court venue – this interesting yearling is decked out with distinctive steampunk flourishes to its contemporary curry house decor, and wins praise for food that’s “spot on and encourages exploration of new flavours mainly from northern and central India, interpreted in a modern style”.

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).
