Lahore Karahi, SW17 0SN

Pakistani restaurant/cafe in Tooting near Tooting Broadway station. It is a cafe-style no-frills restaurant with harsh strip lighting. Some of the food appears to be heated up behind a glass counter.

secretlondon visited one Thursday evening in March 2016. We were a large group and we'd booked a table. The downstairs of the restaurant was full when we arrived, although there seemed to be more tables upstairs which were not being used. It is BYOB with no corkage charge. We drank out of beer bottles which we opened ourselves.

Poppadoms arrived first. There were lots of these — at least 3 each, and served with mango chutney, mint sauce and chilli sauce. These were not massively exciting.

Some time later our mains arrived. Space on the table was tight and my food was spicy with quite a lot of chilli. My Karela Bitter Melon Gosht cost about £8, rice was about £3 and a naan about £2.

Although it says it offers Pakistani food all the options were standard curry house fare. It's cheap and very popular. Be warned — it only has one star for food hygiene.

Toilets are upstairs.
