Everyone seems to have an opinion with Dishoom -- what stands out for me are the excellent cocktails, brilliant table service, consistency of food preparation.  They have forged a simple menu of good quality dishes and built good customer service around it.


Also agree on Diwana Bhel Poori -- great place especially on Sundays.  


I am underwhelmed with everything on Brick (Oil Slick) Lane.

These all look like they would be delicious to eat. I have always wanted to try a meal from a different country and culture. I think that the next thing on my list is India food. I would love to try one of these meals! Which would you recommend that I try? http://www.haveli.us

Cinnamon Kitchen is best among all the Indian Restaurant in London

Neither my many Indian friends or I share your praise for Dishoom - which is mainly style, with uninspiring and slapdash food content. Lahore Kebab food is generally swimming in oil. Brilliant is Kenyan Indian food. Roti Chai inconsistent with a limited menu. For me the Masala Zone restaurants represent a good combination of value, proper Indian food, with good service and interesting interiors in central London. Outside central London, I rate Vijay highly.

Khan's in Baywater is the best Indian cuisine I've ever tasted - clean, rich, balanced flavours and not greasy at all. Also, Ganapati in Peckham do the most amazing flaky, buttery paratha.

Recently I visitied sister restaurant of best Indian restaurant the Cinnamon Club in Soho. It is a great value for money and offers a twist to the Indian favourites. My best bet was their award winning ( Time out's favourite too) the balls and Roganjosh pie. Cinnamon soho www.cinnamonsoho.com is a must visit if you are travelling and looking for best and affordable Indian food.

I second Maxine's comment re Babur. Far by the best Indian reestaurnt I've visited in London, or even in the UK! The menu is inventive & the food is mouthwatering. I'd also vote for Diwana Bhel Poori on Drummond St. Amazing selection for their buffet especially the salads.

I think you need a separate list just for Brick Lane. In particular I would have added Aladin to this list.

I visited all of them, and being an Indian, I can vouch that none of them...read...NONE OF THEM..sell real Indian food...all are crap and trying to fool around by just adding cream, yoghurt and some pickle.

I agree with the list, however i have just found a new restaurant on Hammermsith Grove called Mezban. The food is delightful and service was top notch. I even got a chance to speak to the chef who has worked in some of the oldest well known Indian restaurants in London. Allround a beautiful little restaurant with brilliant service and the food to match it.

Needoo Grill just around the corner corner from Tayyabs is equally good and cheap but far less busy! The food is almost identical due to the old head chef of Tayyabs moving to Needoo. THE best in London

The best thing about visiting Brick Lane is that you get a variety of choice, there is only about 30 plus Indian restaurants. I usually visit Papadoms a venue that has been used by our company on several occasions.

Some good indian restaurants in the list but for sheer quality and flavour of foods at reasonable price I would say some Brick Lane restaurants are the best. If you are going for good food and dont mind decorations I would say visit two of my favourites in London Sheba Restaurant in Brick Lane or Bengal Village and try some awesome dishes,
