........The finest Indian vegetarian cuisine .....  in London's best locations.


OUR HISTORY..........


The Woodlands Restaurant and Hotel group has a rich heritage dating back to 1938 when the first drive though restaurant was  opened in Chennai. Over the years the brand expanded nationally and became popular all over India for serving delicious south Indian food. After decades of success in India they came to London.......

In 1980 Mr Ranjit Sood, an Accountant and Mr H.S. Nagaraj from Woodlands India embarked upon a journey to open one of the first Indian vegetarian restaurants in London. Subsequently our first Woodlands Restaurant in Marylebone was born in 1981 and successive branches opening in London, Mumbai and Singapore. 




 Woodlands has evolved from serving mainly south Indian dishes to the diverse Pan Indian vegetarian destination it is today. We are proud to cater to vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and Jain (no onion or garlic) diners from London and all over the world. Mr Sood's son, Rajat an ex banker and his wife Pooja, a Chartered Accountant are now at the helm of the company.

We are humbled  to have a loyal host of guests, many of whom are prominent figures from the world of Film, Politics, Arts and Culture.
