Laksha Bay aims to deliver a taste of India to diners in the east of London. At Wapping Lane, they are consistently serving aromatic dishes from the Lakshadweep archipelago and inspiring a new generation of curry fans to think beyond chicken tikka masala. The restaurant is laidback and modern – don’t expect classic curry house decor here. Among the bustle and noise in Wapping, Laksha Bay’s commitment to the flavours of Indian island living is making a big statement.
The food most closely associated with India’s islands and coastal regions is distinct from the mainland in that the flavours tend to be subtler and more delicate – there’s no mouth-burning chilli here, things are more nuanced. The team deliver this from their dining room which focuses on delineating class, comfort and excellence for a superlative Indian dining experience in Wapping. London’s Laksha Bay offers diners in the east a chance to try Indian food unlike the stodgy, gloopy takeaway fodder that dominates much of the curry scene in the city.
