Indian Restaurants in Kensington
1. Dishoom Indian restaurant in Kensington The Barkers Building, Derry Street - W8
“The new Covent Garden branch of Dishoom is spectacular and the food is still ace” – our poll’s most commented-on chain continues to win overwhelmingly rapturous reviews. It helps that the “very different” Indian menu is a winner: “super-tasty” and “excellent value”, with the “out-of-the-box” breakfast options a particular fave rave (“have a bacon naan and a cup of chai, and the world feels a better place”). But, actually, the stand-out feature is the “always buzzing and fun” atmosphere at its individually designed branches; and post-lockdown, WC2 took the wraps off a successful makeover, which mines the heritage of Bombay theatres and early Bollywood talkies. It helps that service is “slick”, from “courteous and attentive staff who never push what they want to sell”. The catch? “painful and lengthy queues” for walk-ins which have, if anything, worsened since they introduced reservations in all locations.
2. Chakra Indian restaurant in Notting Hill 33c Holland Street - W8
2018 Review: “Beautiful cooking with a high-level modern twist” wins consistent praise for this comfortable Indian, “in a pretty locale” near High Street Ken tube – not at all a standard curry house.
3. Zaika of Kensington Indian restaurant in Kensington 1 Kensington High Street - W8
This plush modern venue occupies a “lovely space” – a former banking hall near Kensington Palace Gardens – and is the less well-known stablemate of the vaunted Tamarind in Mayfair. It serves “beautiful” and “innovative” dishes inspired by the historic cuisines developed for royalty in Lucknow, northern India.
