Definitive Reviews of London’s Indian Restaurants

Indian Gourmet 7

It doesn’t look much from the outside: a narrow shop frontage down the road from Borough Market. But inside the place opens up tardis-like to reveal an extensive interior.

And that interior was almost completely full — at least it was on the Tuesday evening that we went. So there must be a loyal clientele.

One other point of difference from most Indian restaurants is the presence of female waiters. Indeed all the staff were friendly and efficient.

The food was generally good, although not outstanding. Our starters of Momo Chicken and Garlic Chilli Chicken were more characteristic of a Chinese restaurant – the former being like a Dim Sum and the latter being identical in taste and texture to Sweet and Sour Pork.

Our mains, Garlic Chilli Chicken and Karahi Gosht, were more familiar. Both were tasty with generous portion sizes.

After some Kulfis, we headed home, leaving the restaurant still pretty much full.

Well worth a return visit.
