1. Bengal Quay
You'll struggle to beat this restaurant's take on a veggie biriyani, full of plump juicy greens and powder-soft rice.
It's relaxed setting just steps away from Canary Wharf makes for the perfect place to catch up with friends over authentic, well-priced grub.

If you just can't wait for this venue's annual summer seafood extravaganza - take a trip to the island for Memsaheb's naan instead.
The fluffy, hearty bread's a super accompaniment to a vast menu - which owner Moni Das is more than willing to tweak for those a little scared of spice.

4. Lime Bar and Restaurant
Swish interiors match with a rather impressive menu at this Isle of Dogs restaurant.
