Been meaning to stop by this neighborhood gem and finally did. Not disappointed at all! Had the goat curry with lemon rice and cauliflower and it was absolutely delicious. Washed it down with mango lassi to a quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Definitely coming back here...More

I had been meaning to try the food here for some time having read the reviews. I was not disappointed. Great value for money and with the BYOB policy you can have a very affordable meal at a reasonable cost. Food is fantastic! Five stars!

I love Indian food. However it is rare that a restaurant can offer really different ideas on old classics. Simply Indian was superb. They specialise in light, southern India food - no heavy oils. This was simple and light fare. I had the goat curry...More

Really great food - much more authentic Indian cooking than your usual Indian restaurant in the UK. (The mango chutney is a proper colour, and not like the ordinary stuff that is basically mango jam.) Great range of dishes, but we only had vegetarian or...More

I've been coming to this restaurant for years and the food is amazing! The staff is friendly and even though the place is small it has a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

The menu is unusual and the food is very good here. You bring your own bottle and there is no corkage charge, which is fabulous - and the ambiance is great. This is a really cosy place to spend an evening without breaking the bank...More

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest

An intimate South Indian restaurant very close to Borough market in #London, where you can BYO wine and beer and not pay any corkage fee. Freshly sourced produce delivered daily. A delivery service s also available.Recently rated as top 3 Indian Restaurant in Lambeth by ThreeBestRated UK. Very busy little retaurant so always advisable to book in advance. Party menu also available for celebration bookings.
