Where to eat real Indian food in London



We often say the food in restaurants is not the real Indian food, even if it is or close i am really happy to say that the best Indian food be it London, Delhi or wherever is always in the homes. Food speaks the strength of a culture and in my opinion till the time food at home wins over food outside home culture flourishes. Ok lets not digress and stay on the topic of today. London is lucky to be blessed with good Indian food outside homes and i am going to put down my favourites where i love to go back again and again. Though i do not usually do food posts here but i take food very seriously even more than fashion or travel!!! If you check my stories you know that!! Full of food!!! So this list is legit.

  4. Jamawar - Street food. Love the fancy interior. Food is prime. Reservation must alternatively walk in for luck. Dish to try - Shami kebab, Lamb chops, Macher jhol, Lal maas, Dum nali biryani. Cost of meal for 2 - £100.  
  5. Dishoom - A mix of dishes from all over India. Old bombay Irani cafe interior, love. Brace the que. Dish to try - Keema pav, Awadhi biryani, Bedmi puri, Lamb boti kebab, Masala prawn. Cost of meal for 2 - £50.
As i said i take food very seriously, grab and go or eat whatever, wherever doesn’t work for me so i am always eating at the best places. All the 5 on this list are in and around central London where i usually hangout. Also i take recommendations from friends preferably blogger friends and family  before trying out a place, specially Indian because I wouldn't go out and eat Indian if its not up there!!! In the new year I look forward to sharing more such posts with you.


Thank you for stopping by, see you with my next.

Love

  1. I definitely need to check these places out! I have recently fallen in love with cooking Indian food at home - the whole house smells amazing when I’ve got a curry on the go - so when I’m next in the capital these places will be top of my hit list! Jamawar’s Street food sounds delish!

  9. Really good quality Indian food can be pretty hard to find, but there are more and more great places these days, rather than the old fashioned beer and curry on a Friday night places. Good list!
