At the start of the new millennium, Simply Indian on Tabard Street was laying the foundations of a restaurant that has only grown in stature since that time. A firm Southwark and south of the river favourite for more than 14 years, Borough’s finest Indian restaurant reflects the values that have made the London dining scene so vibrant: excellent food, carefully prepared, with an obsessive concern for authentic ingredients prepared using traditional methods.

I'm not often in London, but every time I visit I come here with friends. It's a lovely intimate atmosphere and the food is absolutely first class. I recommend it frequently. Fantastic that you can bro too
Good food. Good value. BYO. No corkage. Definitely worth checking out.
Didn’t realise it was a BYOB, so couldn’t get a Cobra with my meal. Service was OK (I suspect it was day 1 for the waiter), food was average, Chicken Jalfrazie was very tomato sauce based, dried chilli and not a lot of chicken. On a positive note, Nan bread was excellent.
Of course, London’s diners are hardly short of excellent options for Indian food. In Simply Indian on Tabard Street, SE1, however, diners are presented with one of the city’s most extensive explorations into the food of the subcontinent – the cheffing team are mighty unafraid of plundering the cuisine from all corners of India, all the while using ingredients from halal approved suppliers. The result is one of the most complete examinations of this Asian favourite you’re likely to find in London.
Having plumped for Simply Indian on Borough’s Tabard Street, diners are reminded that good things come in distinctly small packages. With a grand total of just 28 covers, would-be diners are well advised to make a reservation before attempting to find a table. Of course, if you find that this Southwark eatery is booked out (that happens fairly regularly, possibly because they’re BYO), those fortunate enough to live in the neighbourhood can take advantage of the famously good takeaway and delivery service to snare their Indian banquet for devouring at home.
