The Thames IndianThe Thames Indian has been a fixture on the London dining scene since 1985, delighting city dwellers and tourists alike with its Bangladeshi and Indian food and keenly professional service. Cosy and welcoming, the clean, modern dining room with its almost hotel-restaurant look is situated only a few moments from the best of the South Bank, a hop, skip and jump from Waterloo Station while its very close proximity to the IMAX cinema makes it a popular choice for pre- or post-movie dining. Packed with well-known curry house favourites, The Thames Indian's menu is familiar in its choices while also providing a few surprises in those less often sampled specialties of the house fresh from the homely kitchens of Bangladesh. Regular offers, including an excellent set lunch, ensure that The Thames Indian offers competitive prices, while its stalwart status is a guarantee of quality both in food and in service.
