Malabar Junction is in a great location, just down the street from the British Museum, in Bloomsbury. The restaurant offers a great atmosphere and far nicer surroundings than the modest prices would suggest. Excellent food, and prompt service. One waiter, a slightly older gentleman, could...More

I booked a table for 6 on a Saturday night. The service was very good and we all enjoyed our meals. There is a nice ambience and it’s nice to find an independent restaurant in central London which is lively, but not noisy. Looking forward...More

Dined here last night, and a flavoursome South Indian meal. Excellent service and staff. Good range of Indian dishes, mainly from the south and Kerala. Not too spicy or hot. Price was reasonable. Recommended.

Pleasant surprise. Good South Indian food and reasonably priced for central London. Service was welcoming, prompt and friendly, and we were looked after well despite not having a reservation and the restaurant being very busy. Quiet enough to make conversation easily but not so quiet...More

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.
Despite an understandable popularity with students,
tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and
