Plant nurseries call this fig  Ficus binnendijkii.  This fig is growing in the Princess of Wales Conservatory at Kew Gardens UK. Note the absence of a pair of prominent  basal veins which would be distinctive for the juvenile form of F. binnendijkii.

Note that F. binnendijkii is not normally grown as a houseplant.
