Restaurants in London
117-119 Clapham High Street
One of 2 indians we use regularly. Food quality is excellent and spicy selections are well spiced as opposed to the red chilli blow 'your head off' falvour you get in most restaurants. Try the Rajeshwari - its only restaurant Ive come across that makes it. Prices are average and as expected.

I visited the Maharani curry house on Clapham High street a number of weeks ago with some rather boisterous friends. As we were a large group we sat towards the back of the restaurant and were able to enjoy a very entertaining evening, great food and some a couple of drinks. The service was excellent and we all had a fantastic evening. My friend George particularly enjoyed his chicken Vindaloo. I would heartily recommend the Maharani whether you're in couple looking for a quiet night, or perhaps something a little more 'vibrant' in a larger party.

I very rarely feel compelled to write a restaurant review, but the Maharani deserves one.It is foul. I have eaten here before and really enjoyed it, however I went yesterday and was gob smacked when I was served damp poppadums and flat tonic water in my G&T coupled with two rather haggard flies!When I started to put some of the usual sundries (mango chutney etc) onto my poppadum I noticed that the spoon was filthy (like it had been there for years). Then, to my horror I discovered two flies distributed deep in the chutney. I know you kind of always figure that the mango chutney, lime pickle etc get re-used, but this was awfully disgusting!When I complained that this was not what I had expected, I was met with grunts and blathering about how I had started drinking the gin and tonic and so would have to pay for all of the drinks.Rude and crap.
