While Bhavna’s original store sells typical Indian snacks and sweets like bhel puri and barfis, the new counter is centred around serving a variety of vegetarian curries, samosas, and spring rolls. 

Aroma Lounge, in Llanover Road, north Wembley

Bills itself as "the best Indian restaurant in Wembley".

"Without our sense of smell, our only taste sensations would be sweet, sour, salty and bitter. The aroma contributes to the flavours we discern on our plates. We are Aroma Lounge, the best Indian restaurant in Wembley."

Maru's Bhajia Potatoes, Ealing Road, Alperton

Maru's says on its facebook page: "Our speciality is fresh Maru's bhajia with delicious passion juice. Our roots are in Nairobi, Kenya, but we have been on Ealing Road for many years."

Vijay, Willesden Lane

This curry house was established in 1964 and serves traditional South Indian cooking.

It was the winner of the London Curry Awards in 2019 and the London Asian Awards the same year.

As well as mouth watering meat, fish and seafood dishes, a special vegan menu is available.
