Amaya **

$$$$, Indian, Belgravia

Michelin starred Indian restaurant and well deserved. Amaya's cuisine is a fusion of contemporary and traditional Indian food. With its open grill kitchen, unique flavors, and trendy atmosphere, Amaya was my favorite Indian restaurant in London and should not be missed.



Benares

$$$$, Indian, Mayfair

An upscale Indian restaurant. Benares serves a modern Indian cuisine with a contemporary British twist.

Borough Market **

$, All Cuisines, Quick Eats, London Bridge

If you are a food lover, go here! It will be heaven! One of the largest and oldest food markets in London selling a large variety of gourmet foods from all over the world. It is split into 2 parts selling savory breads, cheeses, meats, sauces & spreads, produce, juices and desserts. Definitely come here hungry because you will sample a variety of amazing homemade food. Then venture to the lunch stands to buy an ethnically delicious meal. The lunch stands cover all cuisines- Italian, Indian, Caribbean, Asian, Mediterranean, to much much more. My favorite lunch spots are Soul Food (Carribean), La Tua Pasta (Itallian), Kappacasein (gourmet grilled cheese). Also sample the pesto spread at Borough Olives, soo good. Open Wednesday through Saturday, but beware it does get pretty busy.








Cinnamon Club

$$$$, Indian, Westminster

Set in the historic former Westminster library, Cinnamon Club is a classy modern Indian restaurant that serves authentic Indian food with memorable drinks.


Mango Tree

$$, Indian, London Bridge

Mango tree is more of a local restaurant off the main streets of London Bridge station. The prices are reasonable and the Indian food is prepared in a contemporary style. I recommend the Haryali Chicken Tikka- Chicken tikka with green chili and mint.



Punjab

$$, Indian, Covent Garden

A casual restaurant with great authentic and traditional Indian food for a reasonable price. Be sure to order the chicken tikka and naan bread as well as some vegetables and rice sides to share.


The Rajasthan

$$$, Indian, City of London- Bank

There are 3 locations located throughout the financial district of London. If you are looking for reasonable and authentic, traditional Indian food, this place is for you. More of a casual place so I recommend going for lunch, but it does get pretty busy with businessmen on their lunch break.



Tibits

$$, All Cuisines, Vegetarian, Quick Eats, Mayfair/Piccadilly

Tibits offers a great range of carefully sourced seasonal vegetarian dishes influenced by Asian, Indian, and Mediterranean cuisines. You simply turn up and find a table, no booking required. You then grab a plate and walk around the food boat consisting of more than 40 options. You chose exactly what you want and pay by weight. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
