The food was great, a nice calm place to relax and eat, the waiter was very helpful providing great service, however it being a small place we heard a lot of shouting in the kitchen.

I really enjoyed this small, independent restaurant near Borough Tube station, producing fresh and tasty Indian food with Sri Lankan and Nepalese influences. Lighter than your average Indian meal but full of flavour. Have been back and had another excellent meal.

I’ve lived in London for 13+ years, and the experience at Simply Indian was the very worst of a restaurant I have experienced. Rude, indifferent and worthy of a 0 rather than a 1 out of 5. I will never go back, and I will...More

We dined here for the fifth of sixth time. The food tonight was the best ever. The goat curry was excellent and the basket of mixed bread great. Staff were good as usual. The bring your own alcohol a big money saver.

Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard,
the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond
any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some
time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved
browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street,
foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old
foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks
of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest

An intimate South Indian restaurant very close to Borough market in #London, where you can BYO wine and beer and not pay any corkage fee. Freshly sourced produce delivered daily. A delivery service s also available.Recently rated as top 3 Indian Restaurant in Lambeth by ThreeBestRated UK. Very busy little retaurant so always advisable to book in advance. Party menu also available for celebration bookings.
