The Dewanium is one of the very best Indian restaurants in SE London. Go eat and enjoy the fish tank while you're at it.

Quality varies. Servers must learn hygiene; wash your shirts. Fish curries need to be cooked thoroughly. A hit and miss experience after several visits.

I sometimes go to the Dewaniam for their Sunday buffet. It's on the South Circular but you can park around the corner. There is a good selection and you can eat as much as you like.
