Vindaloo Vic

Definitive Reviews of London’s Indian Restaurants

Indian Fusion 5

Walk south from Tower Bridge and you can’t miss this place. Its display of pink and purple lighting that changes like a kaleidoscope (described on the website as a “fresh contemporary look and stylish interior design”) is guaranteed to attract your attention.

The diverse menu does include some interesting options: Goan Style Squid, Jungle Style Rabbit and Old Delhi Pistachio Korma.

But they also have a selection of “All Time Favourites” such as Dansak, Jalfrezi and Passanda, which can be ordered with a choice of meats or prawns.

The main problem was that the food wasn’t particularly exciting. My Rajasthan Lal Mirch (flagged as being “very hot” with three chilli symbols on the menu) was just average — not particularly tasty or spicy. The service was equally unmemorable, being neither particularly efficient or friendly.

They may claim to be “Tower Bridge’s newest and premier Indian restaurant”, but this doesn’t mean a great deal as I was unable to find any other Indian restaurants in the vicinity.
