There are plenty of amazing places to enjoy Indian food all over the UK, and up and down the capital – from the Bangladeshi joints of Brick Lane, the Pakistani kebabs that dot the city and the Little India of Southall. In the south-west, around Morden, they have huge range of curry houses, and top of the list of local favourites is Mahal Tandoori on Abbotsbury Road. They’ve been around since 1988 – no mean feat in the cutthroat world of curry in South London – and their longevity is a testament to their quality. Their tandoor is, of course, the star of the show, and from that clay oven springs a range of kebabs, breads and more, which, when accompanied by a huge array of curries and biryanis, leads to a superb Indian night out. Take the train out to Morden – last stop on the Northern line, of course – and remember to reserve ahead.
