Five of the hottest Indian restaurants in London

There are more Indian restaurants in London than you can shake a Peshwari naan at. Here’s a quick taster. The Londonist recently published – in alphabetical order – a list of the city’s best curry houses. We whittled it down to five by focusing on the most central.

The Cinnamon Club, Westminster

Gymkhana, Mayfair

The slow-cooked pig cheek vindaloo is just one example of “classic curry house fare taken to blinding new levels.”

Roti Chai, Marylebone

Snacks and small plates are available from the street kitchen on the ground floor, but it is worth pushing the cart out at the more formal dining room downstairs.

Tamarind, Mayfair

The world’s first Michelin-starred Indian restaurant has a price list and atmosphere to match, but there’s no faulting the food.


167-169 Wardour St, Soho, London W1F 8WR

Imli Street, Soho

The little sister of Tamarind. It possesses a more relaxed atmosphere in comparison to the extravagant Tamarind in Mayfair.
