Every time one of our friends in San Francisco or New York raves about the quality of the sushi or burgers available merely minutes from their doorstep, we feel pangs of jealousy and FFOMO (Foodie Fear of Missing Out). There’s no denying, however, that when it comes to having diverse and convenient options for Indian food, London is second only to the subcontinent itself.
