Lahore Karahi Tooting

Do you know where you get the best curry in London? No, not on Brick Lane, but in Tooting - at a restaurant called Lahore Karahi. In my opinion, this is probably the best curry place in London. I have seen this place get popular over the years and can totally get why. Usually it's always very busy in the evenings and the queues can be long, but they do move quickly as the service is pretty quick and you would usually be seated in about 10-15 minutes.

This has been our favourite restaurant for years and I doubt it would be easy for any other restaurant to change our mind. Even our friends and family who have eaten here, from London and abroad, can't stop raving about this place!

Our standard order is the Chicken Tikka Karahi with roti or naan. I have tried most of the dishes here and here is what I would recommend:

Vegetarian
Starter - Paneer tikka
Main - Matar Paneer, Karahi Saag Paneer, Tarka dal

Non-vegetarian
Starter - Chicken Tikka, Seekh Kebab
Main - Chicken Tikka Karahi (not to be confused with the Chicken Tikka Masala, which is creamy), Masala Lamb Chop, Prawn Biryani, Meat Biryani

Dessert 
Falooda Lahori

Here are some pictures which I specifically took this time for the blog. It wasn't easy - usually the food starts disappearing moments after it arrives ;)


We started with some Lassi - plain and mango.


Paneer Tikka for starter. This is one of my favourite dishes here. This time it was particularly moist and just melted in the mouth. Yum!


Main course - Chicken Tikka Karahi - the star of the show, is a spicy curry of onions,tomatoes and spices with chicken tikka pieces (Again, remember Karahi, not Masala) ....


....with naan.


We were quite full already but would have otherwise had the Prawn Biryani or the Meat Biryani followed by Falooda - this is probably one of the best Faloodas I have had!

As always, yet another very satisfying meal at Lahore Karahi.
Make sure to give this place a try :)
