Following a successful opening in Waterloo, the latest Bangalore can be found in the City, opposite Leadenhall Market. It epitomises the fresh and funky attitude of the South Indian city after which it is named, offering a range of light and delicious fare that's wonderfully wholesome.<br/><br/>Contemporary and exciting, this smart, open-plan venue spreads over two floors yet maintains a feeling of intimacy throughout. The ground floor has a lively bar perfect for after-work drinks and bites, whilst the downstairs restaurant is a personal setting suitable for friends, couples or business people. Stretch out in the intimacy of the booths and take time to appreciate the modern sheen of the decor; it's a look that sets this restaurant apart from many of its Indian contemporaries.<br/><br/>The menu is innovative, informal and flexible; whether you're part of a large group or just enjoying your own company, there will be something to suit. Why not try the lamb meatballs in tempered mint yoghurt, or chicken tikka supreme marinated in sweet red chillies and roasted in the tandoor? All the dishes at Bangalore are aesthetically stunning and, needless to say, delicious. Prices are very reasonable, the service faultless and the facilities fantastic.<br/><br/>While the menu is prepared by award winning chef Yogesh Datta, usually synonymous with upmarket and fine-dining Indian cuisine, it offers good value and has a strong following from a young, trendy clientele.

Whatever you do, do not get the Fire cracker fiery phaal curry sauce in the "make your own curry" unless you're a glutton for punishment because you will suffer, like the person next to me realised. I tried a bite of his. First, it tastes great, then the spice starts hitting you, and after a few seconds you start regretting ever saying "i can handle spice". To be fair, both of us can deal with...more
Not your usual curry house!
I mean, all the usual suspects are on the menu, but there's so much more to discover about Indian food at Bangalore Express! From excellent, super-smoky tandoori dishes to lesser known South Indian, Indo-Chinese and Indian Street Food plates, dinner will take you around the sub-continent and beyond!
The very best way to travel with your tastebuds!more
If you work or live around Liverpool Street/Shoreditch, of course your first stop for a curry is Brick Lane. This is a place built on history, a destination spot for coriander goodness from Whitechapel High Street to Bethnal Green Road. It is the heart of the city's Bangladeshi-Sylheti community and you have an expectation of good solid curry houses. As you walk down the street the guys...more
