    This place is amazing - you can't book if you have a small party which is annoying but the food makes up for the time spent queuing. I am really particular about Indian food (coming from an Indian family!) and it's incredible.

    TIP: Try the chilli cheese toast, calamari and Bollybellinis!

    In the less-touristed but gorgeous area of Seven Dials near Covent Garden is this tastefully designed Indian/South Asian street food cafe. Come hungry, early if you don't want to wait in line, and with friends; the many small plates are meant to be shared. I don't like daal much, but theirs is remarkably good. 'Naughty' chocolate chai comes with a splash of bourbon.

    I've always heard that one of the best places to eat Indian food is in London. I'd have to agree. In a city where many originate from or have traveled India, palates are particular and seasoned to ensure this trendy hotspot earns its full house and reservations-a-must status. Everything is delicious, though served in date-sized portions. You'll still walk away stuffed because all menu items come with great descriptions and the waiters speak impassioned with praise for their favorites. Pair the meal with a savory, sweet or tart cocktail, served boozy or virgin. The interiors are designed with a nostalgic throwback to backpacking India and eating in gritty hole in the walls, but here the toilets are clean and Instagram-worthy and the water is sweetly-safe to drink.

    Had breakfast here--the bacon naan hit the spot and the chai, oh that lovely chai! I'm spoiled for life! It was so good, warming with just a bit of a punch. They also have a chocolate chai which is milder for people who aren't fond of the spicy chais. They also serve lunch and dinner.

    Fab Indian streetfood served in a relaxed but smart environment. Great for light bites, lunchtime fare or early suppers.

    Delicious and cheap - a really great addition to similar 'street food' type restaurants springing up all over the place.

    Dishoom has a great vibe, beautiful decor and delicious food but the price can sting if you're prone to excited ordering of loads of small dishes. They add up.

    Absolutely loved this indian spot! Our waiter was extremely patient with us - we ended up trying all new things because he talked us through it all.

    Also...I love places which are themed around sharing plates. It makes the meal more of a social experience. I enjoyed everything and I'll definitely be back! Dishoom takes its decorative cues from the old-fashioned Iranian-Indian cafes that used to be in Bombay. Lots vintage trinkets and prints on display - really lovely and fun atmosphere.
