The Sethi family’s Indian restaurant in Mayfair, Gymkhana, boasts a Michelin star and is one of London's hottest eateries. This, their more low-key, 36-seater Sri Lankan restaurant on Soho’s Frith Street, is no slouch, either. Hoppers’ namesake dish —a Sri Lankan street food staple—is a savory ground rice and coconut milk pancake, served with lamb, hot buttered devilled shrimp or cashews and plantains. Dosas made with split black lentils and fenugreek seeds are also on the menu alongside a variety of delicious kari (similar to curry), which is served with tomato and coconut chutneys. Cozy and atmospheric surroundings including a rattan ceiling, colorful terracotta tiles, abundant vegetation, carved demon masks and vintage Sri Lankan travel posters, makes Hoppers a gloriously exotic option for adventurous foodies.
