Chak 89 - south London

This restaurant (above) won the best restaurant in the London suburbs accolade at last year’s British Curry Awards. Famed for its seekh kebab and extensive veggie menu choices, its luxurious interior and attentive service make it an extravagant and totally worth it night out. 

£5.95+, Tue-Sun, 6pm-12am 
105 Bond Road, Mitcham, Surrey, CR4 3HG 
Station | Mitcham Eastfields


The Famous Curry Bazaar - Brick Lane

Brick Lane has long been one of London’s most famous destinations for a curry. You’ll have to dodge the restaurants’ spruikers who line the street competing for your custom, but then the bartering banter is half the fun of an East End curry.

One of the most well known in this part of town, The Famous Curry Bazaar, serves up Bangladeshi cuisine, which also includes a wealth of vegetarian options for the meat-o-phobes.

£6.95+, Mon-Sun, 12pm-12am 
77 Brick Lane, E1 6QL 
Tube | Aldgate East

Cinammon Kitchen - The City

Executive chef Vivek Singh’s spin-off from The Cinnamon Club and Cinnamon Soho brings the ethos of the two former restaurants to the City – traditional cuisine given a thoroughly contemporary spin as the spice of the subcontinent is fused with British ingredients. New pop-up The Butcher Bar arrives at the adjoining Anise bar (right) until October 28, bringing all manner of meat-inspired drinks and dishes (a cocktail garnished with crispy pig’s ear, for one).

£12.50+, Mon-Fri, 12pm-2.45pm.
Mon-Sat, 6pm-10.45pm EC2M 4YL  
Tube | Liverpool Street


Chakra - Notting Hill

Chef Andy Varma offers Londoners a menu that combines “the ingenious traditions of the Royal Maharaja Kitchen with the refinement of fine dining”. So you can expect food fit for a king. Highlights on the upmarket menu include the lamb chops, inspired by the Patiala Palace kitchen in the Punjab, and the tandoori black cod fillet.

Factor in the exquisite decor and this is a simply sumptuous dining destination. Plus, with a wine and cocktail list that Varma and his team are most proud of, it’s easy to see why this west London restaurant walked away with the Best Newcomer award at last November’s British Curry Awards. 

£15, Mon-Sun, 12pm-3pm.
Mon-Sat, 6pm-11pm. Sun, 6pm-10.30pm 
157-159 Notting Hill Gate, W11 3LF  
Tube | Notting Hill Gate


Lahore Karahi - Tooting

The cafe appearance and ultra-bright lighting bely the fantastic food at this truly authentic Pakistani restaurant. The kebabs and spicy chicken karahi are excellent, the place is always buzzing and it’s a BYO bottle policy, so it works out as a very reasonably priced meal out. 

£4+, Daily, 11am-12am 
1 Tooting High Street, SW17 0SN  
Tube | Tooting Broadway  
Tel. 020 8767 2477 


Chutneys - Brick Lane

A Brick Lane fave since its arrival in 2004, this laid-back restaurant is known for its fine food and fun, relaxed atmosphere. 

£5+, Mon-Fri, 11.30pm-2pm. 
Mon-Sun, 5pm-9.30pm E1 6RL  
Tube | Brick Lane
