When the curry craving hits and diners fancy something a little more exciting than the usual jalfrezi or chicken tikka, they’ll find just the thing in Hammersmith. Shilpa is one of the best restaurants in London for foodies, serving up classic dishes from South India in a friendly contemporary setting. It’s no wonder why their award-winning dishes have made them a favourite with locals.
A stone’s throw from Ravenscourt Park tube station and just a few minutes’ walk to Hammersmith and Stamford Brook stations, Shilpa is one of the most conveniently located places to eat in London. Based in the vibrant borough of Hammersmith, it’s perfect for dining before a night out with friends or before a show with the family.
Like the best family-run London restaurants, Shilpa offers a cosy setting that’s made for relaxed dining. The vibrant dining room features traditional artwork and ornaments, giving the restaurant an authentic feel. Staff are also very welcoming and can recommend dishes to diners that are new to Keralan cuisine.
As Indian restaurants go, Shilpa’s menu might be one of the most exciting. Keralan cuisine centres around coconuts, fish and aromatic spices such as peppercorns. Diners find a wealth of exciting veggie, meat and seafood dishes to tuck into such as grilled scallops, fish curries and spicy potato-filled masala dosa pancakes. Beef lovers should also consider Erachi Ularthiayathu, a Keralan speciality which sees tender beef cooked in an aromatic coconut sauce.
