The rise of new-generation Indian restaurants

- all happening in London

By Bridget C. Shea

The Library Bar at Cinnamon Club

They have oomph, style, and understated sophistication – and above all a fancy menu devised by innovative chefs who have taken Indian food to a new stratosphere. These restaurants do not serve the de rigueur ‘chicken tikka masala’ – mild, medium, or hot with an all-purpose glop – the obligatory fare offered to an unsuspecting clientele in the hundreds of Indian restaurants that ‘curry’ the high streets from Wales to Scotland. A new generation of high-end Indian restaurants, different from those in any other capital city in the world, are wooing discerning Londoners, gourmets, critics, and of late Le Guide Michelin (The Michelin Guide) – the most revered of culinary ratings.

Take a look at the Top 3 new-generation Indian restaurants in London

- Benares
