With its mix of magicians, acrobats, mimes, musicians and other performers, Covent Garden has the feel of a carnival, especially on crowded summer nights. There are numerous restaurants in the area to choose from, but we liked the Indian fare at Masala Zone. London is known for its excellent Indian food and this is one of the best. Start with appetizers of chick peas or potato samosas, washed down with refreshing mango lassis. Then dive into the delicious lamb, chicken, and seafood curries, paired with warm nan bread.
