Epicurious Magazine List of Top London Restaurants - Good for travellers and others?
Looks like a generally good list (although the inclusion of Jamie's Italian does make ya wonder!)
I suspect that there would be many who would also query the two "Indians". Even as a tourist visitor to the capital myself, they wouldnt be the two on my list.
That said, I have always wanted to eat at Veeraswamey as it's the place that sort of ignited my initial interest in Indian food. My much older late cousin used to come to London on business in the early 1960s and would always have a meal there - he came back with the stories of the exotic food and the waiters in exotic Indian clothes. Bear in mind this was a time pre-dating most of the South Asian immigration to the country and it would be some time before there were Indian restaurants in our area for me to try.
