Enjoy our selection of the best and newest venues to enjoy Indian cuisine in London, a discerning and raising market in England's capital.
"Indian food in London is now more exceptional in its finesse, creativity, and diversity than Mumbai and New Delhi's restaurants," says Manish Mehrotra, executive chef of Indian Accent disarmingly when we meet over an exquisite dinner at his pearlescent walled Mayfair dining room several months into its stride. It is the third outpost of Indian Accent. A New York outpost of the original Delhi restaurant has been phenomenally successful and Indian Accent is now elegantly recalibrating expectations of fine dining in Mayfair with its dazzlingly inventive menu and presentation.
The sense of a very special journey begins with a delectably intense amuse shot of pumpkin and carrot soup, served with a miniature bite of blue cheese. The menu is full of surprising dishes that are earthy, elegant, even witty, such as the umami-rich duo of Kashmiri morels dusted with truffle and walnut dust served on a parmesan papad raising the bar of sheer culinary brilliance. Makhan malai made with an ethereal cloud of aerated saffron milk topped with rose petal jaggery brittle and almonds is extraordinary.
