Indian Restaurants in Covent Garden
1. Masala Zone Indian restaurant in Covent Garden 48 Floral St - WC2
“We always go for the Grand Thali and it’s a knockout!” – These “ever-buzzing” contemporary Indians make a very “handy backstop”, with WC2 in particular “an excellent pre-theatre option” for a “fast and delicious” meal. “We thought it might be chain-bland, but the food was good and quite authentic… and good value too!”
2. Tandoor Chop House Indian restaurant in Covent Garden Adelaide Street - WC2
“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”.)
3. Talli Joe Indian restaurant in Covent Garden 152-156 Shaftesbury Avenue - WC2
Queue at Dishoom too large? Maybe take your chances at this heart-of-Theatreland yearling from ex-Benares chef Sameer Taneja, which – though not yet quite as highly rated – likewise provides a highly popular and consistently well-rated combo of “cleverly constructed” tapas “packing a good clout flavour-wise”, and a “fun” and “really lively” setting.
4. Punjab Indian restaurant in Covent Garden 80 Neal St - WC2
“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!”
5. Sagar Indian restaurant in Covent Garden 31 Catherine St - WC2
“Fresh South Indian vegetarian food”, including “monster-sized dosas”, all at low prices wins a sizeable fan club this small chain (Covent Garden, Tottenham Court Road, Hammersmith and Harrow) despite its incredibly “ordinary” decor.
6. India Club, Strand Continental Hotel Indian restaurant in Covent Garden 143 Strand - WC2
This veteran near the Indian High Commission in the Strand “has been around for more than 50 years” and “hardly changes”. “So basic it’s almost a parody”, it is reached via an “unappealing entrance and up two flights of stairs”, but “very good value and authentic” scoff still justifies the trip. “A miracle it has survived in redeveloping London – if it ever goes, we will miss it!”. BYO, or buy beer from the hotel bar. STOP PRESS: Redevelopment is now threatened here with news that the lease is expiring in 2019, and plans to modernise the site have been submitted.
