London: Indian Accent


As I mentioned in the Dishoom and Ghymkhana posts, this trip to London is all about Indian food! A few months ago I was at a lunch with an Indian family living in London and I asked for her list of best Indian restaurants. She gave me a list of 10 and I couldn’t wait for my next trip to London! Second to check off the list – Indian Accent!

Indian Accent may already sound familiar and it’s not suprise – the location in New Delhi is the #30 Best Restaurant in the World and the #1 Best Restaurant in India. To quote the Indian Accent site:

Indian Accent’s menu explores progressive ideas in Indian cuisine while maintaining traditional integrity. Chef Manish Mehrotra reinterprets nostalgic Indian dishes with an openness towards global techniques and influences.


Koen and I decided to order both set menus – meat and vegetarian – so we could share and sample everything. We both agree that the vegetarian menu was the best!
