This “underrated”, modern curry house, just north of Putney Bridge, showcases “Indian cooking on another level”“the room may be simple but the food is complex, delicious and varied”. Chef-patron Shilpa Dandekar trained in both Eastern and Western culinary traditions, under Raymond Blanc and India’s smart Taj Group, while her husband and co-owner Faheem Vanoo runs the front of house.

This “real local gem” north of Putney Bridge serves “delicious and unusual Indian food” – and is “refreshingly free from the usual clichés”. Owner Shilpa Dandekar is a “great and innovative chef” – she trained at the Taj Group and worked under Raymond Blanc – and her cooking is “beautifully presented”. Only the “rather ordinary room” gets brickbats – “more prestigious surroundings required!”.

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).
