Restaurants, Indian Stoke Newington

This ever-popular Indian restaurant is something of a Stoke Newington stalwart, with a local history stretching back to 2002. It's also from a family that have been running Indian restaurants in London since the early '80s - beginning with Mother India over on Lower Clapton Road. 

There's certainly plenty of choice on a menu that covers most curry house bases - think samosas, bhajis, vindaloos, jalfrezis, biryanis and bhunas. The most interesting options, though, come from the tandoor and from chef specials such as shatkora gosht, royal sagrana and keema korai - a Punjabi dish of minced lamb cooked in a spicy sauce with peppers, green peas, fresh green chilli, onions and the house garam masala. 

Keep an eye out for special offers, as well as a good-value Sunday buffet. Delivery and take away services are available, too.

The best Indian restaurant, by far, in Stoke Newington and quite possibly, the world! Distinctive, delicious and the very best best of authentic Indian cuisine. Incredible food, service and a wonderful yet refreshingly down-to-earth and ambient atmosphere. You may have to wait a bit for your food but, in an Indian restaurant, to be honest, let's face it, that's a good sign and the food is well worth the wait. Moreover, the prices are incredibly reasonable across the board. Recommended dishes are the 'Catch of the Day' and 'Paneer Tikka', a sumptuous selection of char-grilled vegetables and paneer, fresh from the Tandoor. On weekdays you can find great deals, often with as much as 50% off mains, you can also reserve on OpenTable for points and they often run deals too. This is a regular haunt for us and it never fails... or breaks the bank. I've said it before, I'll say it again...'Dahl be back'...
