Great Beer
Good Vegetarian Options
The coming together of delicious Indian food and great craft beer.
There are many pubs serving exquisite food, but it is rare for a great restaurant to offer delicious beer.
Here at Booma we will challenge your perceptions by pairing great beers of the world with the delicate and delightful spice flavours of India. Some of the world's finest beers have notes of coriander, cardamom, ginger or star anise and we will pair these beautiful brews with aromatic Indian dishes.
Our chefs know a thing or two about Indian cooking, having honed their skills at some of the best establishments in London. We will be offering the famed dishes of Northern India, giving them our twist, and using charcoal tandoori ovens to create unique flavours that can only be achieved using sophisticated cooking techniques.
By bringing together the wonders of Indian food and the delights of great craft beer we hope to create a new and thought-provoking food experience.

Booma is a very relaxing restaurant with delicious food, good service and if you come at certain times of day it would be much more relaxing than normal. I love this place, I and my husband love to break the monotony on Sundays and come to this place to eat well and different Indian food. Well crafted and very creative. Now, they are trying new vegetarian dishes and we tried spicy beetroots and it was delightful.

It's hard to tell which is better the food or the beer, both are excellent. Service is friendly and efficient.
Recommend booking a table as it is often really busy

7 Sept - Dined at Booma with friends. Upon the advise of the waiter we ordered 3 starters and 8 mains (there were four of us eating).

We had onion Bahji, Ragda Patties and Malai tikka. All delicious and beautifully booked and presented. We then ordered Dal Makhani, Tandoori Macchi (salmon), Duck Kathi role, Chettinaad pork ribs, Booma Chicken curry, Booma Chicken Curry, rice and Naan bread.

The food was outstanding with the Malai tikka, dal makhani, tandoori macchi and chicken curry being the firm favourites, albeit all the food was great.

We will certainly return and rate this as a great local restaurant.

For anyone in the SW9 area, a perfect place for an intimate meal. Whether that be with friends, a significant other or family, a good place for Indian food that isn't littered with ghee. Crown & Anchor pub opposite is one of my favourite in the area too - a variable choice of beers.

Great little eatery with lovely Indian tapas style menu. Great for beer lovers and nice choice of wines. Table were a little bit cosy for couples but not a big deal. Our food was delicious. Only negative being they oddly don't serve coffee but a small point really. Would go again and recommend.

We had another great dinner at Booma this week. The Daal Markhani alone would be worth the trip to Stockwell, but there are so many different wonderful dishes on offer here including the amazing softshell crab, and it is also fantastically good value. Go!

Stumbled upon Booma after looking for a birthday present for hubby. Beer and curry, his two favourite things. We weren't disappointed. The food was out of this world and very reasonably priced, and the choice of craft ales was clearly well thought through. Our waiter was friendly, helpful and relaxed - he possibly could have spent longer suggesting beer pairings, but to be fair we didn't ask as he was very busy. Overall a great experience and we will definitely be back.

The food is awesome. They have come up with so many creative ideas to present a normal Indian dish. Papadum and Peshawari naan were the best dish that I had. Hospitality was good too. Would definitely recommend to everyone

We are very lucky that Booma is a ten minute walk away from our house, because the food is constantly very good, we used just go and get able , but it is now very busy at weekends. So now we book a table.
Very friendly staff and service even when the restaurent is packed

I took my fiance to Booma for his birthday. Everything was great. The staff was lovely and friendly. The food was absolutely fantastic! It was a surprising twist of the traditional Indian dishes with a nice combination of craft ales. Will definitely come back!

As an Indian (and also a professional Food Writer), I have high standards for Indian food. Booma is truly excellent and puts an interesting, innovative spin on Indian food. Not a Korma in sight!

A new twist on an old favourite can often be interesting but not worth repeating; not so here. The food is not only different but excellent, very good value for money and the range and quality of the paired ales makes this a significant step above a regular "curry house".

An outside seating area means that it's also a great option for a warm summer evening and the excellent pub next door means that you can make an night of it.

The outstanding online review meant that we supposed we'd be a bit disappointed but all our expectations were exceeded (there were four of us) and we'll definitely become regulars.
