Hot and spicy: London's best curry houses It’s bring your own booze (BYOB) at this cosy café-style curry house in the centre of bustling Tooting. But one taste of your home-made curry here and you won’t be worrying about the drinks. They serve everything from the old traditional Karahi chicken and tikka masalas to dishes that are a bit more exotic and spicy. For instance, the Kerala Gosht (a lamb and bitter gourd extravagance) is mouth-wateringly splendid. If you don’t finish the large portions, then ask for a doggie bag.
Legendary in South London - and beyond as the chain expands. Try the delicious lamb chops and butter chicken wings to start with. It's great value, prompt service and consistent quality. The restaurant is always really busy with a mixture of locals and people who've travelled. BYO alcohol.
