“Been a dedicated customer of the Noor for 40 years” – this “classic, old-style” curry house has served “very tasty Indian food” to a loyal clientele on the Earl’s Court-South Ken border since 1964. To regulars (and the occasional sleb, from Eric Clapton to Gwyneth Paltrow), it makes “the perfect Sunday evening meal, for comfort food”. It has a younger offshoot in Bayswater. Top Tip: “the food can come very fast, so best to stagger the order”.

“Reliably upmarket curry house” on the Earl’s Court-South Ken border – a true veteran (est. 1964) whose loyal, well-heeled clientele rate its “consistency” and comforting atmosphere. Given its posh neighbourhood, it’s attracted its share of slebs, with Brangelina, Gwyneth and Robbie spotted over the years. The Bayswater offshoot is similar, but less fashionably located.

An “old favourite” – this “reliable workhorse” on the Earl’s Court / South Ken’ borders is a proper, “old-fashioned Indian” and has everything you’d expect from a “great neighbourhood curry house”, including a “loyal clientele and staff that have been there forever”. There’s “nothing extravagant about it, but that’s its charm” and it’s always “impressively busy”. (It has a similar, but lesser-known Bayswater spin-off.)

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).
