Restaurant reviews | Currying favour in London
The British capital's culinary landscape is mushrooming with a fresh crop of Indian restaurants. Here's what's dotting the epicurean map
London’s top tables have always lorded over tantalisingly eclectic offerings. The smorgasboard of choices: Wiltons in St James that still sports its set three-course menu to the customary afternoon tea at Fortnum and Mason to Lanesborough’s reimagined flagship restaurant is home to Chef Shay Cooper’s contemporary British food that brings to life seasonal produce from across the country. Whether it’s a Thai cash-only place like Singburi where you queue up for the twice-fried, crispy pork belly with garlic and chilli or the ritzy Bibi that summons an exciting modern Indian treat, London’s restaurants are distinct, imaginative and exciting.
