Let's not kid ourselves, we're all craving something hot and greasy to ease the nagging hangovers from the celebrations last night.
Last New Year's Day more than a quarter of a million of us Brits reached straight for takeaway menus: it's a wonder there's any sustenance left in the UK. Thankfully in the capital we've got tons to choose from, whether your stomach is screaming for a saag aloo or pining after a pizza, and we've rounded up a whole bunch of the best to make deciding a little easier on those ailing brains of yours.
