London has long been known for its excellent Indian food and I opted for fine dining over the plentiful and often mediocre curry houses of east London's Brick Lane. This selection includes some long established favorites, as well as popular new ventures. After sampling the food at these restaurants, I'm not sure I'll be able to ever order Indian takeout again. Named best British restaurant in 2014, Michelin-starred Gymkhanacontinues to be extremely popular so be sure to call well in advance for a reservation.
Sibling to Gymkhana is the equally delightful Trishna in Marylebone village. Michelin-starred, Trishna specialises in seafood is also reasonably priced, especially for lunch, with a four course tasting menu at £35.  Nandu varuval (soft shell crab) is a personal favorite and an extra dollop of delicate white crab on the side made this dish one of the best I've had anywhere.
Continuing with Michelin starred restaurants, my third stop was Benares, which undoubtedly deserves its reputation as one of the best Indian restaurants in London. Atul Kochhar was the first Indian chef to receive a Michelin star, earned while Head Chef at Tamarind in 2001.


Bombay Palace has been offering consistently good traditional Indian food for over 35 years. Chef Harjeet Singh, who trained at Bukhara in New Delhi, has been at the Bombay Palace in London since 2000. The restaurant was refurbished recently with an emphasis on comfort rather than glamour and it retains its feel of a popular neighbourhood restaurant.
There are many more Indian restaurants in London like, Dishoom, tiffin box, Mumbai curry, and many more small restaurants in southhall, Honslow and east London which are famous for all Indian Meals.
