vegetarian indian buffet at Diwana Bhel Poori House

Vegetarian South Indian restaurant Diwana Bhel Poori House is London’s first of its kind serving hungry patrons since 1971. You can pile your thali platters high every day of the week at lunch time with their all-you-can-eat buffet, for just £6.95.

Drummond Street boasts a few strong offerings when it comes to food from this part of the world, but I can't recommend this spot enough. Let your taste buds take a wander through all the different mixes from rich and savoury, to fresh, light and sweet. 

Included on the lengthy roster of classics are paneer saag (spinach), aloo chana (potato and chickpea), chapatis, poppadoms, Bombay potatoes and speciality dosas and poori dishes. All distinctly delicious with layers of flavour. The buffet runs from 12pm - 2.30pm on weekdays and 12pm - 4pm on weekends. 

If you want to visit during the evening instead, you're in luck as most of the a la carte menu falls under our magic £8 mark anyway.
