For any neighbourhood restaurant to be fairly full on a Monday must be a good sign. This was the case when a comrade and I recently visited the well-established Singapore Garden in Swiss Cottage.
With around 9,000 Indian restaurants in the UK, how is a consumer to know which are good and which are bad? One simple solution (beyond reviews) is to rely on local recommendations. A recent night out ended in Fortune Green, north west London.
Green and leafy Hampstead feels as if it could be part of the countryside rather than just a few tube stops north of Euston or Camden. Being a world removed from the London we all probably know better may have its charms, but what the Wells gains in terms of location, our group of five dining there recently on a weekday evening felt it lost in terms of atmosphere and service.
