Since I started my current range of live shows (Adam Patel: Real Magic LIVE & Adam Patel: Brown Magic), I seem to have set myself up to become a sort of curry critic. If you’ve seen either of the shows, you’ll know the bit I’m talking about and you’ll understand why this has happened. And funnily, people have started asking me to recommend Indian restaurants and curries.
I will address each city I regularly frequent in its own article. So, to begin, here are my current suggestions, in no particular order, for the best Indian restaurants in London.
A nice little and reasonably priced restaurant on Finchley Road in North West London. My local. And my first choice for an Indian takeaway.
Maaya and I have a term we attribute to a certain style of Indian restaurants with dated furniture and decor. If we happen to chance across one of these, we call it an Uncle’s House. Because it is sort of like going for a curry at a relative’s house. Gopal’s of Soho is sort of on this line. However, what points it loses in interior decor it makes up for in flavour. And for Central London, the prices aren’t bad either.
When we drove up there one Saturday evening I remember being annoyed by the serious difficulty I had finding parking. But once we tasted their food, everything started to make sense. No wonder there was no parking! Paradise, as it turned out, was not an overstatement.
In the heart of Soho. Pricey.
If you’ve ever wondered what Michelin starred curry tastes like, take a trip down to Zika in South Kensington, perhaps on your way to the Royal Albert Hall, and have a taste. It’ll set you back £25 for the privilege making it by far the most expensive curry I’ve ever come across. But it WAS a pretty good curry. Worth double the regular price of a curry? Probably not. But all the same, interesting to taste.
