Located on the south side of Clapham Common, Clapham Tandoori has been serving up traditional Indian cuisine to south Londoners for 40 years, and they're not showing any signs of slowing down. They
attribute their success to a combination of traditional Indian food, modern décor and their award winning chef. The food, too, is highly acclaimed – several of their signature dishes, including the
chicken hariali (chicken breast in ginger, garlic, coriander, lemongrass and Madras sauce), raan mussallam (roasted marinated leg of lamb with an onion and tomato gravy), and chicken xakuti (a
spicy south Indian style chicken curry with freshly ground coconut), have won House of Commons awards. The décor is clean and modern – expect lots of bright colours, uncluttered surfaces and glass
and, as an added bonus, non-stop Bollywood films playing on wall-mounted TVs add to the buzzing ambience - and service is friendly and accommodating.
