Tandoor Chop House is a modern Indian restaurant specialising in North Indian-style tandoori meat and breads, which sadly means that there’s no curry on the menu. They have a nice selection of starters and sides (especially the beef keema naan with dripping), but some of the main dishes from the tandoor can be dry. With that in mind, you needn’t worry about hitting it up, unless you’re close to Trafalgar Square and staring down a two-hour wait at Dishoom.
