Specialising in stylish pan-Indian tapas, the Michelin-starred Amaya is favoured by a clientele of well-heeled professionals blessed with good taste (and deep pockets). Ask for a table by the open kitchen for a view of chefs working the clay tandoor, charcoal grill and griddle. Amaya’s own-made paneer is outstanding and beef even makes a surprise appearance in a splendid sirloin boti.
London has many fantastic local curry houses, plus some extremely high-end fine dining options. There are plenty of both that deserve shouting about.

Our city’s vibrant Indian food scene offers the full range of regional styles and specialities – from Bombay biryanis to Punjabi grills – it’s a Bollywood symphony of fantastic flavours.
