Introducing someone to South Asian cuisine in London

Smog_Report | Aug 11, 2012 05:42 AM

Am racking my brains trying to think of the best place to introduce my (Greek) girlfriend to Indian and Pakistani cuisine. Amazingly, after 6 years of living in London she claims never to have sampled proper South Asian food. Should I just drop her in the deep end and take her to Tayyabs or Mirch Masala, or can someone name a good "gateway curry house"? Does anyone have any suggestions? I was thinking maybe Keralan restaurant might be a good starting point?

To make matters more complicated she's vegetarian so ideally somewhere with a good veggie selection would be appreciated. Damn it, why did Kastoori have to close?
