1. Kashmiri Lamb Shank Roganjosh, Motu Indian Kitchen
Set up by the team behind Gymkhana and Hoppers, Motu offers indulgent home style Indian food that's worlds away from average. Like the Kashmiri Lamb Shank Roganjosh, where succulent lamb on the bone is slow-cooked in a rich curry with aromatic spices and herbs.

2. Pani Poori, Indi-Go (vegan)
Indi-Go has made it their mission to bring the traditional street food of India to life in a modern London setting. We love their Pani Poori, little crispy wheat balls filled with tangy kala chana – a soft blend of creamy potatoes and sweet onions – served with a spicy dipping sauce. Mumbai never felt closer.

3. Aloo Tokri Chat, Trishna (v)
At Michelin-starred Trishna, the food is as tasty as it is pretty. Try the stunning Aloo Tokri Chat – a beautifully crafted nest with potato, chickpea with masala spices that'll excite all your senses. A hint of sweetness from the tamarind and cool yoghurt brings this delightful flavour medley together.
Where: Trishna, Marylebone
4. Chargrilled Paneer Cheese, The Painted Heron (v)
The Painted Heron's food has a upmarket dress-to-impress vibe that's sure to wow anyone. Crusty and smoky slices of chargrilled paneer cheese are served with a velvety and spicy 'gunpowder' sweet potato and paneer champe, with a side of fresh julienned vegetables.
Where: The Painted Heron, Chelsea
5. Vindaloo of Ox Cheek, Cinnamon Soho
It's widely claimed that curry has become a British national dish. Further proof of the Anglo-Indian love affair is what Cinnamon Soho are cooking up – taking the best of both worlds and making amazing fusion food. A traditional spicy vindaloo is cooked with richly-flavoured ox cheek, served with a dollop of luscious masala mash on the side and a delicately crunchy pickled radish.
