I'm not the biggest fan of Indian cuisine and I don't have a favourite curry house, however one of the best Indian restaurants I've visited in London is Bengal Tiger down a little alleyway in the shadows of St Paul's - it's nothing fancy, but if you're looking for a cheap and cheerful dinner after a few drinks in the city, it's recommended.

Head Chef Abdul Malik has created a menu with plenty of freshly cooked dishes made with ingredients from all over the world.  Signature dishes include sikandari raan (roast lamb with aromatic spices), king prawn badhsahbag (king prawns cooked in mustard seeds) and duck jalfrezy (duck in a jalfrezy! - cooked with peppers, tomatoes and chillies).  We had a fantastic mixed starter selection - the lamb kebabs were my favourite - a bottle of wine, fresh naan bread with two huge mains we couldn't finish and a fresh, palate-cleansing sorbet.  Delicious.
