Where can I find the best curry in London?

Heading to London this summer for the first time and I’ve heard the Indian food is insane there, so I would like to know your most favorite places for curry! I don't really care about ambiance. Mostly what I want is good food, so holes in the wall spots would be awesome too.

    One of the best is Tayyabs , although the food is hot like you would not believe. I’ve mentioned this on here before but the entire party I was with was literally sweating by the time we left. Also—huge lines so go early.

    Cinnamon Club is also great—not a huge menu but really great food and very creative. I know you said ambiance doesn’t matter but the ambiance here is actually really great.

    Do NOT miss Aladin on Brick Ln which is to London what Yankee Stadium is to baseball. The restaurants on this street are just about all Indian and they compete every year to be the best on the block (all the restaurants there have huge banners outside advertising what place they came in that year), and this one often wins. They have insane puri bread and the shrimp tikka masala is my fave. Very, very cheap. Make sure you go to some of the nearby Indian supermarkets on that street, too—you can really pick up some great stuff to just keep in your hotel.

    A friend introduced me to Chutney Mary which I really liked, although I have a tendency to like my Indian food pretty traditional and this menu was definitely creative. That said, I loved having a great Indian place to go to in Chelsea Chelsea.

    Rasa Restaurant is really good, too, but I don’t remember what I ate there.

    Hi Johan. A lot of people would say Brick Ln, though there's a lot of choice and personally I think alot of the choices aren't very good. My personal favourite Indian area is Mirch Masala in Tooting. It's got the best curry I've had in London, for a great price, usually lots of atmosphere and you can bring your own beers from the Lidl across the road. Can't go past it!

    Hi Johan,

    East London has the greatest selection of Indian food.. There are many to chose from on Brick Ln. My favourite is Aladin .. It's a BYOB so stop off at the Brick Lane Off Licence down the way and grab some beers beforehand.

    Enjoy,

    Celine :)

    Walk up and down Brick Ln. Find one. Sit in it. Enjoy. That's really all you need to know.

    Head to Brick Ln, aka Curry Alley, and see what smells good. The very best curry is probably Tayyabs on White Chapel Road, which is a short walk away.

    Jump off the tube at Aldgate East, Algate, Shoreditch, or Liverpool Street (depending on where you're coming from).

    Not a typical curry house, but the best Indian food that makes me look forward to go to London, as an Indian, is at Dishoom. They've got the original branch in Leicester Square I think, and a newer one in Liverpool Street.
