Welcome ...

... to our semi-serious guide to curry houses in the City of London. Each restaurant is marked for food quality, ambience, service, beer and VFM. This site contains restaurant reviews, photos, maps and the occasional amusing comment.

Go to the Alphabetic Listing for information about all the restaurants we have visited - see our reports,
some photos, maps and (where applicable) links to the restaurants' own websites.

Use the City Map to find a suitable restaurant in your chosen area of the City - the map shows
the location of each restaurant we have visited (and its current star rating).
