This was my second visit and it was arguably even better than the previous one. Order the chilli chicken, chicken ruby, sheekh kabab, basmati rice and garlic naan. Delicious food, great service and good value for money. Be prepared to queue at peak hours.

The very best that India has to offer. This is the type of place that you can point to just about anything randomly on the menu and be assured it will be great. Fresh ingredients, creatively assembled!

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
