There are loads of styles of curry in London, and Sri Lanka makes some of the meanest. Hoppers - named for the country’s bowl-shaped, sauce mopping pancake - is not just one of the best Sri Lankan places in London, but one of the best places to get a curry, period. The food is a joy to eat - miss the bone marrow curry or devilled shrimp at your peril - and the cocktails aren’t bad either. It’s another busy restaurant, but you can put your name down and get a text when your table is ready, all while you have a drink nearby. You can also hit it for lunch, when tables are easier to come by.
