Indians want Indian food wherever they go. Well, at least all my family and friends do. We recently went on a family holiday to the Algarve and one of the top priorities was to find the best Indian restaurants in the area to dine. With this in mind, I thought it might be helpful if I did the same for anyone coming to England.

I’m not able to say that any of these restaurants are my favourites as I haven’t dined at every Indian restaurant in London, but each one stood out for different reasons. They are in no particular order as it would be difficult to compare respectively.
