Sakonis. Wembley & Harrow. NW London

One of the oldest and most famous Indian vegetarian restaurants in the south of England, Sakonis has expanded its size as well as upped its prices (especially for juices and its signature dishes) over the past few years. Gujuratis love the chaats and chilli paneer, and entire extended families will come here on Sundays for their famous buffets, leaving the restaurant with heavy bellies paan in their mouths. The plastic tables and cheap fittings formula hasn’t changed either.
