Dishoom - Covent Garden & Shoreditch

Dishoom (which translates as ‘mojo’) have two Bombay cafes in town, which recreate the traditional meeting, eating and drinking places of India’s most populous city. With a laid-back vibe, there are breakfast and all-day menus that include everything from upmarket chicken and pomegranate salads and lamb samosas to spicy lamb chops and the legendary Dishoom chicken tikka.

Bombay Palace - Paddington

With eight branches around the world from New York to Kuala Lumpur, the Bombay Palace team are doing something right. Prices are steep, but you get what you pay for – a chandelier-adorned dining room and a menu loaded with mouthwatering dishes.

Needoo Grill - Whitechapel

Opened by a former manager at Tayyabs, Mr Ali, this low-key but sublime restaurant is known for its top notch kebabs, street food snacks and confidently spiced curries. There’s no corkage fee on the bring-your-own-bottle policy, either.

Tayyabs - Whitechapel

East London’s Tayaabs has been a family owned and run business since its arrival back in 1972. Famed for its mixed grill and lamb chops, it began as a small cafe and now encompasses three properties crafted into one. One of the best-loved restaurants not just in east London but all of the capital.

£7.95+, Daily, 12pm-11.30pm (last orders) 
83-89 Fieldgate Street, E1 1JU 
Tube | Whitechapel


Rasa N16 - Stoke Newington

The first of what is now a six-restaurant chain across the country is held in supremely high regard by the locals who have been frequenting this south Indian vegetarian haven for many years. The pink exterior isn’t misleading – inside, the same colour scheme dominates. Dishes are served on a fresh banana leaf and eating’s done with the traditional right hand in what is a fun culinary experience. We definitely recommend the Avial curry.

£7+, Sun-Thur, 6pm-10.45pm. Fri & Sat, 6pm-11.30pm.
Sat & Sun, 12pm-3pm  
55 Stoke Newington Church Street, N16 0AR 
Station | Stoke Newington
