Famous for its low-fat, colour free cuisine, this aromatic little Indian on Epsom's Upper High Street is a punchy addition to the Surrey dining scene. Khan's has built itself a wholesome reputation since launching its flagship shopfront in London's Lavender Hill. The dining room itself is a study in earthy, terra cotta tones punctuated with bright and breezy Indian colours, and the atmosphere is cosy and unpretentious. Perfect for dinner parties and get-togethers with friends, Khan's has earned a loyal following with Epsom epicureans, and highlights from the menu include the chum chum chicken charcoal-grilled and served with the chef's special chutney, and the lamb balti bhuteko cooked with pistachios, herbs, ginger and garlic.

During my time in Epsom, I've seen the town change a lot and the Upper High Street area has lost a lot of old stalwarts over the years like Iceland. Shama's Indian restaurant had been a regular haunt for locals on this site for many decades - I always remember it for the diamond shaped menu on the wall with the wonky writing! Cheap and cheerful Indian dining would sum up its food.
