To celebrate the relaunch of Time Out’s 100 best restaurants next week, we’re giving you a sneak peek of the top five restaurants in the capital over the coming week. Today we kick off the countdown with the fifth best restaurant in London.

Luckily, this Sri Lankan small plates and street food savior is well worth the wait, thanks to those eponymous bowl-shaped savoury pancakes, which are primed for tearing and sharing and scooping up curries that are just as unapologetically hot. This is street food at the most fashionable end of the scale, with the egg hopper becoming one of London’s ‘it’ dishes.
Read our full review of Hoppers and come back tomorrow for London’s fourth best restaurant.
