Lokhandwala

We’re seeing newbie Indian restaurants poppadom-ing up every month and the demand from Londoners for traditional Indian dishes with a contemporary twist is veryyyy high.

DUM London

I love a restaurant with a simple, focused menu and DUM London by Dhruv Mittal provides just that with a menu centered around an old Indian favourite – biryani.
