We're yet to do a proper Tooting Curry Blog review of this takeaway's eponymous sister shop in Tooting, but that won't stop me giving the Clapham South branch a shout out.

Chatkara is an institution.

Conveniently located right opposite the tube and the only takeaway in the area to be open til the late late hours, Clapham residents need not look elsewhere.

With a range of curry dishes and sumptuous naans this ticks all the boxes for Indian food fans. There's also the option to sit and eat in for those one or two who've sunk a few too many beers of an evening.

The signature bite is the chicken tikka roll, but don't take it from me, get in there yourself!

I used to live about it so it will always have a warm place in my curry lovin' heart!
