* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

“Superb”, “authentic Keralan food and old-fashioned Indian service” are the hallmarks of this veteran, close to the Telecom Tower – and “the value is unbelievable, especially for central London”. “The food went through a down patch but has improved again”“despite the somewhat odd recent renovation and updated menu”.

“Unpretentious but brilliant” Keralan veteran near the Telecom Tower, which offers some of the “best-value curry in London”. It’s “still rough as anything in terms of the building but the food consistently nails it” – including some “proper veggie choices”. Top Tip – “the dosas at Ragam are the best I’ve found in London”.

“Year after year Ragam churns out delicious south Indian food, with lots of excellent vegetarian options” (“perfect dosas”) – “it’s not fancy but it’s full of flavour and never fails!”. The ambience at this basement near the Telecom Tower “doesn’t get much better (despite two refurbs!), but the service is friendly” and everything comes “at a very reasonable 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).

"Still producing good food after all this time. The service was quite impersonal but adequate. "

"More than a quarter of a century after my first visit, the Dosa are still worth the trip. I think it’s been redecorated as well!"
