Wondering which Indian restaurants in Bermondsey are worth visiting? Well, since our team loves Indian food, they have decided to gather and share all of their favourite places in the area that you are definitely going to love.

Tower Tandoori Restaurant

First on our list is Tower Tandoori – one of the oldest Indian restaurants in the area which was established in 1978. With a classic interior, this casual little place is perfect when you want to enjoy a nice traditional dish in a relaxed setting.

Our favourite starters include the Punjabi Samosa (with spices, potatoes, peas), the Paneer Tikka, the Smoky Lamb Chops, and the Onion & Kale Bhaji.

The main dishes you need to try are the Chicken Makhani (with tomato gravy and honey), the Dhaba Gosht (mutton), the incredible Chicken Tikka Grill, the Dupiaza, and the Vindaloo Curry. Of course, there are plenty of other options on their menu so you will definitely be able to find your favourite Indian dish.

Next on our list is Mumbai, a hidden gem we recently discovered that you probably have never heard of. It’s a casual little restaurant with an impressive menu and super friendly staff.

We love their Tandoori dishes such as the Lamb Tikka, Tandoori King Prawn, and the Tandoori Chicken. Other lovely dishes on their menu include delicious Biriyani, Korai dishes, Bhuna dishes such as their Chicken Tikka Bhuna, Lamb Korma, and a lot of other traditional food we all know and love.

We also highly recommend their Tandoori King Prawn Massala (with king prawns that are marinated in yoghurt with spices, nuts, almonds) and the Lamb Rogan (with fresh tomatoes and garlic).

Cafe Nawaz

Another lovely little Indian restaurant that we highly recommend you visit located in Bermondsey is Cafe Nawaz. Aside from traditional food they also offer quite a lot of unique dishes with a modern twist.

For example, our favourite starters are their Cashew Nut Rolls (mashed potatoes and vegetables rolled in cashew nuts then fried) and the Murgh Chat Masala (chicken with fresh coriander, cucumber, tomatoes, green pepper).

When it comes to their main dishes, you can never go wrong with a Tandoori dish such as Lamb Tikka. We also really like the Mixed Exotic (which has chicken tikka, lamb tikka and tandoori king prawn, butter and honey sauce), the Pistachio Chicken, the Chicken Mango (chicken with mango, almond, cream, butter), and the King Prawn Biryani.

Gunpowder Tower Bridge

And last but definitely not least is the most popular Indian restaurant in Bermondsey – Gunpowder Tower Bridge. It has a modern and sophisticated interior, delicious food and excellent service. If you love Indian food then you have most likely already visited Gunpowder but if you have not done that yet, we highly recommend you book a table and go as soon as possible!

The menu is relatively smaller compared to other Indian restaurants, however, keep in mind that this is a contemporary place and they have created a modern and unique menu that you won’t find anywhere else.

Starters include Egg Curry Masala, delicious Goan Ham Croquettes with apple chutney and chorizo as well as a salad with kale, bhuna aubergine, and goat cheese.

Main dishes are just as exciting – Lamb Chops, Whole Beef Rib in Kerala Pepper Sauce, Goan Style Grilled Prawns.

Do you love desserts? Then do not forget to leave room for their incredible Shrikhand with dark chocolate, cinnamon, and passion fruit which is a traditional Indian dessert made from yoghurt.
