London boasts some of the best Indian and Italian food of any city anywhere, including, as many a Londoner would say, cities in India and Italy themselves. A popular Italian restaurant is Hell Pizza. In addition to having great thin crust pizza, this themed restaurant has great Italian inspired salads, pastas, and sides. Bonus: they also deliver! Still craving some Italian food?

Owing to colonial history, good Indian food is not hard to find in London either, and you can start your search at Hot Stuff, a restaurant in Lambeth. Hot Stuff has consistently garnered great reviews from everyone who visits, complimenting the savory and spicy punch packed into every dish. Also, Hot Stuff happens to be one of the least expensive restaurants in all of London! Check out the New York Times guide to London’s Indian Restaurants for more ideas!
