Top 4 Indian Restaurants In Southall According To Our Team
Raunka Punjab Diyan
First on our list is Raunka Punjab Diyan – a casual little restaurant with a traditional look, cosy atmosphere, great service, and tasty food you have to try. It’s a very popular Indian place in Southall and it’s a favourite of many people so if you haven’t been there yet we highly recommend you visit.
Aside from traditional starters, you will also find incredible main dishes that you know and love. We really enjoy their Main Special Masala Fish, the Chicken Tikka Masala, Jalfrezi (with ginger, onion, capsicum, yoghurt), and the Chatpata Kukkard.
If you don’t eat meat then you will be pleasantly surprised since half of their menu is indeed vegetarian.
For dessert, we recommend the Hot Gulab Jamun (dumplings) or the Gajjar da Halwa which is made from carrots and is served with ice cream.

With locations all over the world, Moti Mahal is a very well-known Indian restaurants chain that has been founded in 1947 – so they have plenty of experience and know exactly how to deliver authentic Indian taste. Thankfully, they also have opened a location in Southall, and we highly recommend you visit it.
Their menu is focused on Indian street food but delivered in a modern and stylish restaurant.
We always start off with their signature Paneer Tikka Roll and then move on to their main dishes. You have to try their Tandoori Jumbo Prawns, Chicken Korma, Lamb Vindaloo, and Lamb Dopiaza.
Other favourites of ours are their Chicken Dosa, Lamb Dosa, and the Chicken Briyani!

The next place on our list is considered a high-end Indian restaurant. The decor is indeed very stylish and contemporary, their food is delicious, and the service is excellent. We recommend this place for a nice dinner with friends.
When it comes to their menu, it consists of both vegetarian and meat starters and main dishes. We always start off either with a Tandoori Salmon, Chilli Chicken, or Chilli Garlic Prawns.
Next, we move on to their delicious Masala Machi (Tilapia, masala sauce, cumin seeds), Roganjosh (with lamb), Karahi Murg (with spicy thick gravy), or the Masaledar Kuku (sautèed chicken with masala).
If you do not eat meat, however, we recommend their Chana Masala (with chickpeas, masala, ginger, garlic, onions, tomatoes), the Bhindi Masala (okras, onion, tomatoes, spices), or the Tarka Dal (yellow lentils, garlic, onion, asafoetida, cumin).
And our favourite dessert from Madhu’s is their Mango Kheer which is a traditional Indian rice pudding with mango and dry fruits.

Established in 1975, Brilliant Restaurant is indeed brilliant. It’s a cosy and inviting little place with rich history, a lot of experience, incredible staff, and mouth-watering traditional food that has a bit of a modern twist to it. They were even featured in Gordon Ramsay’s series “Ramsay’s Best Restaurant”!
Start off with their Brilliant Tandoori Mixed Grill (which includes tandoori chicken tikka, tandoori lamb chops, seekh kebabs, tandoori prawns) and is a great way to try their meat starters. We also really enjoy their Popcorn Jinga (which is a shrimp style masala tempura with tamarind mayo)!
When it comes to their main dishes, we love their Methi Chicken (with tomato masala, fresh fenugreek leaves), the Palak lamb (with fresh spinach leaves, and onion and tomato masala), and the Karahi Ghosht Bowl (lamb, onion masala, red and green capsicums).
If you don’t eat meat then got for the Paneer Jalfrezi, Mumbai Alu (potatoes, tomatoes, mustard seeds), or the Vegetable Koftay (special dumplings with pomegranate, masala).
