Michelin-Starred Indian Restaurants in the UK

Michelin-Starred Indian Restaurants in the UK

For a restaurant, there is no greater honour than being awarded a Michelin star - unless of course, it is being awarded three Michelin stars! Michelin stars are awarded by Michelin inspectors who will eat at a restaurant without revealing his or her identity to the staff.. One awarded star means that the food is considered very good for the category it is in. Two stars mean that Michelin are recommending that you should really try the food in that restaurant if you happen to be in the vicinity. Three stars mean that Michelin considers the food to be of exceptional quality and recommends that you try it even if it means going out of your way to do so. In terms of Michelin starred restaurants in the UK, there are many fantastic places to try - but if Indian food is your thing then the following 10 Michelin star Indian restaurants should definitely be on your list of restaurants to visit.
