Many Londoners have tried this very traditional, north Indian veteran on the fringe of Covent Garden (founded in 1946, and now in the 4th generation of family ownership) at some time or another, but it lacks a regular local following due to its touristy location. It wins consistent praise, however – including for its support of the armed forces (10% discount to those who’ve served).

“Long-established, traditional Indian” north of Covent Garden that’s “always a pleasure”. Founded in 1946 and now in the fourth generation of ownership by the same family, part of their successful formula is “very competitive prices”.

“Good food at good prices… but then they rush you out”; “especially considering its location”, this long-lived Covent Garden curry house avoids (most of) the pitfalls of its tourist trap potential and is resolutely “free of the gimmicks that plague more modern Indians!”
