The sister restaurant of Indian Moment, Indian Room has helped revolutionise Indian cooking in the UK. Their chefs craft light, fresh fare from organic ingredients without the use of artificial colourings or excess oil, and the number of awards the team have won are a testament to their talent.
While the food has its roots in traditional techniques and flavour combinations, you’ll find some contemporary surprises here too. Apricot chicken Kashmir is a firm favourite, a sticky combination of savoury and sweet, while the Goan fish curry is a fresh, fiery plate that will delight seafood lovers.
Balham and its neighbouring Tooting are hotbeds of Indian culture with huge numbers of first-generation immigrants, so it’s fair to say that locals know a good curry when they see one. Don’t take our word for it - let the fact that Indian Room is fully booked most nights speak for itself.
