Run by the same owners as Chutney Mary and Verraswamy, the United Kingdom's oldest Indian restaurant, Amaya, has earned one Michelin star for its grilled kebabs and Indian-style tapas. From the rosewood-paneled dining room, diners watch chefs in the open kitchen cook with a hot-clay tandoor oven, over coal flames, or on an iron griddle. Straying from the usual Indian curries, the dishes range from marinated venison to chutney-glazed asparagus and jack-fruit biryani (a rice dish). Many sharing plates are finger-food, and all come with sides of fruit chutneys and toppings (including one made of ground rose petals).

Insider Tip:

While the Indian tapas at Amaya are ideal for sharing with a group, there's a communal table catering to solo diners and those without reservations.
