Wondering which Indian restaurants in Peckham are worth it? Well, since our team really loves Indian cuisine, we decided to share all of our favourite places with you!
Top 4 Indian Restaurants In Peckham According To Our Team!
The menu is pretty small but it has all of your favourite Indian dishes featured in there. Also, they like to make changes from time to time since they work with seasonal products and vegetables. This is great because it means everything is fresh and they are really dedicated to delivering the best food!
We highly recommend starting off with a sweet and savoury banana bhaji (sweet banana bhaji, + green banana bhaji, red chilli chutney, peanut chutney) as well as trying out the poppadoms with garlic pickle, beetroot pickle, injipuli (sweet-sour and spicy curry), sweet tomato chutney!
When it comes to the main dishes, we love the kadal prawn and the kumbly lamb (lamb cooked with white pumpkin, red and white onion, tomato, chilli, coriander). These dishes go really well with their Coconut Rice (with onions, curry leaves, fenugreek seeds, coconut milk) and the raita (yoghurt with vegetables).

Boxwallah is another Indian restaurant in Peckham that is a favourite of ours. We often go there for a quick lunch or dinner. The owner loves India and the cuisine and is dedicated to making the most delicious food in Peckham as a way to represent her culture and country!
We highly recommend you try out the Chilli cheese aloo Tikki (mash potato stuffed with cheese, peppers served with tamarind and mint chutney) as well as the Beetroot Punjabi samosa (handmade pastry stuffed with vegetables and beetroot). Both of these dishes are amazing starters and are super delicious! The second option is also vegan and vegetarian!
As your main dish, we suggest the Boxwallah fried chicken (served with green chutney), the Lamb Seekh Tikki (served with green chutney) or the Chicken tikka roll!

2 Sisters Tandoori
Next on our list is 2 Sisters Tandoori – a takeout restaurant that doesn’t have a dine-in area. It’s a pretty well-known place established in 1990 that many love because of the incredible Indian food they serve!
On their menu, you will find all sorts of traditional starters and main dishes like tandoori, biriyani, curry, and delicious naan bread!
We highly recommend their Lamb Tikka, their signature Chicken Tikka Amla Dish (chicken tikka cooked with coconut, cream, sultanas and mango flavoured sauce mild spices), and the King Prawn Biryani!

And last on our list is another incredible takeout restaurant in Peckham called “Spices”. It’s a hidden gem since not many people know of it, however, the food is super tasty and well-made which is why we highly recommend you order takeaway or home delivery from them whenever you are craving Indian cuisine.
From their starters, we highly recommend the Chicken Chilli Garlic Tikka and the Mulligatawny Soup. When it comes to their main dishes, they have it all – biriyani, tandoori, balti dishes, and plenty of other traditional Indian food. For example, we love the Lamb Tikka Balti, the Fish Curry, and the King Prawn Pasanda (with almonds and creamy sauce)!
