The Londonist has pegged the India Club as one of London’s best-kept secret restaurants!
This 70-year old Indian restaurant is one of the capital’s best-kept secrets. Popular with nearby LSE students, academics, writers, lawyers, staff of the nearby Indian High Commission, and even a few celebrities, it’s barely known by anyone else. Climb up a flight of stairs inside the unassuming Hotel Strand Continental, and you’ll discover a quaint dining room and bar that’s untouched by time or fashion. The charming Colonial-style décor shows off Independence-era portraits, and has the feel of a classic first-generation ‘curry house’.
Specialising in south Indian cooking, the menu is divided into vegetarian and non-vegetarian sections. Simple, great value dishes include bhuna lamb, mughlai chicken, egg curry, and snacks like masala dosa and bhel puri. If you’re looking for a quiet place with a difference in central London, this is it.
