Shadi Bakery, CR0 2FF
Naan bakery in West Croydon.
It's a small shop, with two tandoors at the front. You queue up, the baker asks how many naans you want (in multiples of three) and he makes them for you from balls of dough. Unlike other naan bakeries in Tooting and Walworth, it doesn't do different varieties like cheese or nutella.
They also do chapati photo, and there's a counter at the back where you can get keema naan, which in this context means one of the naans spread with a minced lamb mixture and some lettuce, and then rolled up.
Kake visited for a takeaway keema naan in November 2015. It was OK, though the meat wasn't particularly high-quality and I wished they'd had more interesting salad.
secretlondon visited one Monday evening in November 2016. Naans were 3 for a pound, and were put straight into a carrier bag, not wrapped in any way. I ate one of my naans waiting for a train. It was absolutely fine.
