Rasa Samudra/Tayyabs/ or other suggestions for Indian in London

Where is your hotel? There are so many good indian places in London. My favorite is Durbar, in my old neighbourhood of Notting Hill/Bayswater.

Good kosher caterers?

We used GMB for our wedding 8 years ago and people still comment on how good the meal was. I had two meals recently by Zuchter Berk, the cold lunch was lovely, but the full wedding dinner was absolutely horrible.

we used GMB for our wedding and we were very happy with the food. But that was 8 years ago, I don't know if they even exist anymore.

Cream Scones

love this recipe! The commenters were right though, I found it a little wet so I use 1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons of cream. I also double the amount of sugar, that doesn't make it sweet at all, it's just a bit less savoury. Just remember to be very liberal with flouring the cutter, if you don't they turn into dome shapes rather than having the flat sides that scones should have.
