Does anyone else remember the Balham Tandoori?
It was on the site of what is now The Balham Lounge. It was the only Indian restaurant I’ve ever come across that was run by a West Indian.
He was a lovely old chap though. Whenever we went in we would be the only people in there. He’d greet us like old friends and ask us if we wanted our usual. He would then bring us something completely random from the menu.
Thinking about it, it’s pretty clear why it closed down!
