Hullabaloo first captures your heart with its silver string of tinsel and massive tiger's head (fake, very, very fake) on the wall. Then it wins over your head with its £10 daily lunchbox, and finally your taste buds with its tasty, plant-based chana masala and bringal aloo. The Indian restaurant overlooks an offshoot of Deptford Market, and a steady stream of stallholders and locals pop in at lunch for their regular orders and chats with the staff. Things are a little chaotic and ramshackle, with a mish-mash of stools—some white leather and swivelling, others wooden, worn, and straight out of an old-timer’s pub—but it’s endlessly welcoming. If asked, opt for a spicier version of the dish over mild, as we found some of the mild options a little bland. Go for the vegetable goan, cooked in a creamy coconut sauce with a little heat, the hot, tomatoey jalfrezi, and the garlic naan that’s, wait for it, properly garlicky.
