a few places tried recently...
"simply indian" = "simply awful" -tiny portion sizes, barely filling half the take-out box. ridiculous amounts of oil, no flavour to the curries. spinach dish tasted like the smell of linen. couldn't eat more than 4 mouthfulls (was starving).
want some of the most fantastic curries ever? try the Bengal Clipper
or hara -they're in a completely different league, utterly fantastic, easily the best curry houses in london.
"the garisson" bermondsey st. -food is good, if they have the mussels in, order them, they're even better than the ones at belgo. service is utterly appalling though. last time we were sitting there for 50 mins and nobody came to take our order, even as we left the staff were chatting amongst themselves -doubt they noticed we were walking out.
"bermondsey kitchen" -come a long way since it first opened. foods good, service is good, give it a try if you haven't already.
"cucina" -gourmet pizza delivery company. you'll never look at pizza the same way again. fabulous.
"glas" -new swedish restaurant. pretty unusual (if you're not swedish, i presume). excellent quality food and service. small place so best to book in advance. a must-try.
