Gujarati in London?

Hi, my wife and I have been living off these posts since we moved here from Brooklyn this summer--extremely grateful for the tips (Thai 101, Sedap, Pearl Liang, Great Queen St, etc). I've been searching but can't find a clear recommendation for my latest craving. Has anyone found a good Gujarati restaurant here? Perhaps in Wembley or Tooting? Am missing home-cooked food and thought it might be fun to go to one of the Indian neighborhoods since it's almost Diwali ... Thanks!

  1. I seem to remember that Tooting used to have quite a few Gujarati restaurants. I hope someone jumps in with a few names for you. Unfortunately, one often mentioned, Kastoori, has apparently closed. I think someone my husband works with is from that area (at least her family is), so I'll ask her for some names.

    1. There's a Gujju place called Tulsi in Wembley which is alright and does a Gujarati thali that is quite good. There's another Gujju place off Green Lanes which was reviewed by DaveMP if you want to track down the name.

        Excellent, thanks so much! I had seen your review of Tulsi but then got scared off by some more recent reviews online. Might be worth a shot anyway as the neighborhood sounds interesting. Will try to track down the other one, too. We also found a listing for a place in East Finchley, which is a bit closer to us. Will post if we make it there and it's good!

        Also really want to try the bhel puri/pani puri stands in East Ham one of these days.

          I haven't seen those carts in a year or so, unfortunately. There's a chaat place in a phone shop further up High Street North towards Newham Way though.

            Rose in Kingsbury isnt toooo bad either, though I would probably rate Tulsi for the chaat stuff more highly....not been to either in ages so hopefully it's still consistent!
