Lal Bagh is an Indian restaurant on the very edge of London in East Sheen. In London’s last gasps of urbanism, before the leafy streets of Richmond proper take over, Lal Bagh is flying the flag for all that makes London great: internationally-inspired food in an welcoming, multicultural environment on Upper Richmond Road West. The food here takes its lead from the classics of Indian cooking to give diners the traditional curry-house experience at the edge of the city.
Established way back in 1998, Lal Bagh along Upper Richmond Road West has been delighting diners with their classic Indian food for almost twenty years. Led by Mr. Chowdhury, the family team enjoy a reputation for offering some of the most authentic Indian food in East Sheen. Diners first come to Lal Bagh because of the inviting-looking dining room, on full display via the restaurant’s huge front windows. The reason they return (and diners do, in their droves) is the simple, well executed food that Lal Bagh is famous for.
Got a hankering for halka? Tormented for want of tandoori? Fear not, these classics form the backbone of the traditional Indian food which the Upper Richmond Road West restaurant serves here. Diners in East Sheen already regard Lal Bagh as the go-to place for authentic Indian food, but London’s masses have started to get a whiff of things too, and Lal Bagh’s next decade is already looking assured. Reservations are always a good idea when heading over to Lal Bagh, particularly over the weekend.
