Papadoms restaurant in London’s Banglatown, Brick Lane, is a sunny, welcoming Indian restaurant whose chef won Best Curry Chef of the Year Brick Lane last year. No small feat, considering the
intense competition. This modern restaurant has curry-coloured walls, black marble bar, sleek modern tables and leather seating, open staircase leading to a skylit, wood-ceilinged dining mezzanine.
Signature dishes include the award-winning Roopchanda (Pomfret), chicken or lamb Jalfrezy, garlic chilli chicken, xacutie chicken and hara fish masala cooked to the chef’s mother’s recipe. Gentle
incense fills the air, and the waitstaff are friendly and fast.
