Description: Situated in the heart of Kensington, The Light of India restaurant is a classy and elegant Indian restaurant established in 1984. The authentic style décor incorporates a classic feel and neutral colours. The Dining Room is beautifully elegant – a place where a traditional setting and delicious Indian food triumph. Our culinary philosophy is deceptively simple. We celebrate the very best of Indian food. The Light of India cuisine is an extraordinary combination of flavours, delicate seasonings, in- house freshly ground spices, marinades, and complex tastes. We use only fresh and locally sourced ingredients. The Light of India is the perfect place for family dining in London, an intimate dinner with your special somebody, or just a meal with friends or colleagues. To fully appreciate the depth and breadth of our unique Northern Indian cuisine, we would encourage you to share dishes with your fellow diners and taste a wide range of contrasting flavours.

Our first night in London and came across this gem. Most items on the menu were or could be adjusted for my dietary restrictions onion bhaji to start followed be jumbo prawns balti superb accompanied by red wine, unfortunately there was no Gluten Free beer this was a small minus so 4/5 starts he staff were very good. Hope this helps
