Lively and popular Sri Lankan
Hoppers features Sri Lankan food, fresh flavours in a cool, lively restaurant and a low price point that’s proved a huge hit in London. The team behind the restaurant also run two Michelin starred Indian restaurants, Gymkhana and Trishna, and the equally popular Bao, a Taiwanese ‘bao’ restaurant. Both Bao and Hoppers have a similar vibe, small, cosy lively and friendly staff serving well priced ‘authentic’ food. And both have queues outside day and night. Read our review for the full lowdown.
If you’re dining as a couple the idea is to order 2-3 starters, a dosa, a hoppers and a couple of curries. We recommend the Fish and Black Pork curries.
