London's 11 Best Indian And Pakistani Restaurants

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.
In scouting out the capital’s best Indian restaurants, we nearly overdosed on tikka masala, but we’ve done our best to provide a rundown that covers a range of south Asian cuisine (we snuck a Pakistani option on the list as well). Manhattan may have enough Shake Shacks to feed the entire island, but we’ll take a lamb kebab and a well-mixed gin fizz over french fries any day.
