A “different take on Indian favourites, which you can watch being made in the open kitchen” combines with “retro glamour” styling to good effect at this three-year-old behind St Martin-in-the-Fields: an “excellent concept”, “almost like a copy-cat of Dishoom, but way more relaxed”. In July 2020, it acquired a Southwark spin-off, Tandoor Tacos – a Latino/Indian mashup – and some dishes may be imported to the Covent Garden menu in due course.

A “different take on Indian favourites, which you can watch being made in the open kitchen” combines with “retro glamour” styling to good effect at this two-year-old behind St Martin-in-the-Fields: an “excellent concept”, “almost like a copy-cat of Dishoom, but way more relaxed”.

“Wow, every dish on the menu is a treat” at this year-old modern culinary mash-up, backed by Ennismore Capital, which combines the trad British chophouse with northern Indian techniques and spicing, in an atmospheric, wood-panelled space, just behind St Martin-in-the-Fields.

“Succulent and delicious tandoori dishes, offering a different experience of Indian cooking”, win fans for this “approachable” newcomer near Trafalgar Square, whose evocative panelled decor seems to owe a fair amount of inspiration to Dishoom. (“A good place for sure, but I suspect the swooning and gushing comes from people who’ve never visited the classics of Tooting and Commercial Road”.)

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).
