Darjeeling Express in Soho is the best homestyle Indian cooking you can eat in central London. Hit it for lunch or with a few friends, and book ahead.
Brawn in Shoreditch might be one of the city’s best neighbourhood restaurants. One that might even make you want to change neighbourhoods.

Breddos is a Clerkenwell restaurant that makes tacos with creative fillings that aren’t authentic, but are absolutely delicious.

Bombay Bustle is more formal than your local curry house but not at all stuffy, even though it’s in Mayfair.
