The best private dining rooms in London’s Indian restaurants

The first ‘spicy’ international cuisine to be adopted by the British, Indian cooking is now so integral to British culinary heritage that alongside fish n’ chips, chicken tikka masala is often named one of the nation’s favourite dishes.

For the purists out there, we know that tikka masala may not cut the mustard – or even the raita – but that’s what’s so wonderful about the evolution of Indian dining in London.

The sheer range of Indian restaurants is now staggering. There are restaurants to suit every taste, every style and every budget – from sleek modern offerings to street food and Michelin starred fine dining, it’s all available and many have fabulous private rooms enabling guests to enjoy exclusive parties and special events.

In the City and Mayfair there are more formal dining options like Trishna or Gymkhana, ideal for corporate entertaining or special occasions, while in London’s spiritual ‘home of curry’, Brick Lane, there are many more casual options ideal for parties and entertaining friends or family.

Top tip: From Michelin starred restaurants such as Benares to Indian barbecue restaurants like Brigadiers, private event catering will often include the option of a banquet style sharing menu enabling guests to not only feel at ease but also enjoy the full range of fabulous dishes.
