“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”.

“Spectacularly good South Indian meals” at a “wonderfully cheap” price won renewed acclaim this year for this grungy Keralan stalwart, near the Telecom Tower. Especially since its recent makeover it can seem even more “drab and harshly-lit”, but on all accounts it’s still “a tremendous recommendation”.

For 30 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).
