When the craving for curry hits locals in Kentish Town, they know to make their way to Monsoon. The friendly eatery is the epitome of comfort and has gained a reputation as one of the best places to dine out in London for diners that appreciate a classic curry. Best of all, they go beyond typical Indian restaurants with a selection of regional dishes that promise something for adventurous diners too.
Found just a short stroll from Parliament Hill Lido, Monsoon would make a wise pick for families that love dining out in London with the kids. Tourists will also find that while Monsoon is just off the beaten path, it’s within reach of Hampstead Heath. And when they’re ready to head back into town, they just need to hop on the Northern line at Tufnell Park tube station.
Diners looking for a chic step up from the typical Indian restaurants in London need look no further. Monsoon offers a refined and sophisticated style that’s smart enough for a date night or anniversary meal. Yet it still has the warm hospitality and friendliness of neighbourhood curry houses, making it a hit with families looking for fuss-free meals with the kids.
Covering all the classics, a meal at Monsoon would make a fine introduction for diners new to Indian cuisine. Hearty biryani and tarka dhall will certainly satisfy the biggest appetites. But for something completely new, diners can indulge in exotic options like their Goan tilapia, tangy achari lamb or the punchy naga curry, which is cooked with one of the world’s hottest peppers.
Whether diners are partial to a fiery vindaloo or sizzling tandoori chicken, a meal at Monsoon is sure to hit the spot. Any occasion will be even more of a treat for tastecard members who can look forward to exclusive restaurant savings when they call to book ahead and present their cards upon arrival. It’s a good chance to treat themselves to a few scoops of mango kulfi, a starter or extra naan.
