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.
