Restaurant description

With specialities from all corners of the subcontinent, Simply Indian in Borough offers authentic Indian food in minimalist style. The colourful Simply Indian menu showcases a variety of innovative curries, grills and vegetarian dishes, and you can bring your own wine or beer to enjoy this flavoursome range.

Using fresh Halal meat and fish straight from Billingsgate, Simply Indian restaurant sources fine ingredients to create its traditionally cooked Indian dishes. Next to the curry house favourites, try Barbary duck fillets with paneer, or the aromatic tender lamb stew Mamsa Ishtew.

A great range of vegetarian choices are found on the Simply Indian menu, with chickpea, mango and coconut among the refreshing salads. Classic Indian rasamalai joins black cherry crème anglaise and the fruity ice dragon on a tempting dessert list.

With chicken, game and seafood options, piquant curries are accompanied by cooling lassis, juices and Indian beers. Simply Indian in London is a 3-minute walk from Borough Tube Station.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    Went in a group of 6 people. I hadn't been aware it was a BYOB restaurant but that's my fault, staff told me where I could go to pick up a beer if I wanted to so no problems there. Small restaurant so not much in the way of ambience; fairly minimal decorations too so not a particularly exciting place to eat. However, the food is excellent. Well flavoured and well cooked, even the poppadoms were better than most Indian restaurants I've been too. Clearly the chef knows what he's doing so would recommend this place for anyone in the London Bridge area looking for good Indian food. Only real negatives were that the staff were very pushy in terms of us ordering more food...were quite insistent we order a dessert, took some convincing that we didn't want one, and then the bill took a while to come. Nearly gave 3-stars for that but, ultimately, it was a good meal and we had fun, so think the restaurant deserves a 4-star rating overall.

    small restaurant close to Borough station. Great food, excellent choice!! Not the standard-Indian-menu. Third visit, more to follow! BYOB, you can take your pint from the pub across the street...

    Small restaurant in a side street. Food was lovely and very tasty, quick service (although there was only us and one other couple in the restaurant) the best thing was you could take your own drink which cuts the bill down considerably, overall lovely restaurant!
