This upmarket Indian is rightfully popular with discerning Docklanders who have found an absolute gem of a place. The menu encompasses not only favourites like chicken tikka starter, various tandoori dishes and many curries, but also more adventurous Bengalese dishes like Tok Gost, lamb cooked with tamarind and spices, King Prawn Piary, which comes with an English cheese sauce and is heavenly, and Boal Dopiaza, boneless boal fish cooked with thick spicy gravy and scads of onions. The room is light and very pleasant with views over the Thames and devoted waiters whisking about. An Eastern star.

Mem Saheb has always been one of the best kept secrets on the Isle of Dogs. It has always been above its local peers. Having undergone a change of management, the refurbishment has added class and light to this venerable institution. The best starters for me are the Devil Beef or the Tandoori Salmon. One also should ask for the staff curry (if available). It's usually meat on the bone and is a spicier affair than the other items of the menu. Definitely recommended.
The waiting staff and chefs are well established. Parking is not an issue in this quiet part of the Docklands.
The added advantage of this restaurant is that it operates under the Tastecard scheme. A visit with the view of the O2 won't break the bank.
