About Simply Indian

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.

More about Simply Indian, London

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. Find what London does best food-wise at Simply Indian: great authentic food, classically prepared.

Lovely evening, booked in advance - necessary as it was filled all evening, very attentive staff, relaxed atmosphere, tasted curries and BYOB - what else is needed?
