| Westminster, Strand, Victoria

With London being the strongest it's ever been for high-end Indian restaurants, the Quilon has been one of the longest serving in the city - and it's kept its Michelin star too. It's also the sister restaurant of Bombay Brasserie. Expect south west coastal Indian cuisine with a high-end feel.
