About Vijay South Indian

The first ever South Indian restaurant to open in England, London’s Vijay South Indian was established all the way back in 1964. Since then it has become a firm favourite among Willesden locals, and even attracting a number of celebrities through its doors, from Kylie Minogue to the Indian cricket team! Begin your meal with some South Indian starters like the spicy egg dosa & sambar (a crispy pancake filled with deliciously spiced fresh eggs with onions and ginger) or the rasam (a thick soup with tamarind juice, black pepper, tomatoes, green chilli, garlic and ginger). Then, move on to some keralan lamb fry (lamb pieces cooked with a dry masala paste), cochin chicken (chicken cooked with fresh lime leaves and mustard seeds) or the veggie-friendly mutter paneer.

"Good"4/6

The food was good as it always has been, however we felt as we were being rushed. The mains came out when one of the group was still finishing her starter which meant her main was left on the corner of the table until she was ready. The restaurant was not busy by any stretch of the imagination and therefore cannot understand the rushed service. Have been going to Vijays for many years, albeit not often in the last few years and my father first started going there in the 70's so we were both a little disappointed that we did not have a really relaxing meal, which was a treat for our visitors from Canada.

Very authentic food, beautifully cooked, individual flavours, lovely service, clean, casual restaurant. I would have liked better cutlery but that is such a minor point.
