what the critics say


Andy Lynes - 3/5

Wednesday, November 03, 2010 - Although apparently specialising in food from the north, it's a Goan-style prawn balchao from the south-west of the subcontinent that's the stand-out starter. The only disappointing thing about the plump shellfish in a well-balanced sweet, sour and spicy masala is the stingy portion size...A karbahari fish curry is judged too creamy by its recipient, although the chef's wise decision to use dense, meaty halibut means the flesh hasn't overcooked in the coconut milk-rich, aromatic sauce. However, a venison bhuna is bang on the money; tender chunks of meat in a gloriously earthy, deeply flavoured marinade/sauce.



Tuesday, September 28, 2010 - Salmon cubes steeped in lemon juice, ginger, garlic, cinnamon and Kashmiri chillies were moist and sensitively spiced. Murg and mirch ka guchi to them; baby Padron peppers to you and me - stuffed with tiny cubes of chicken steeped in a herby, ground chestnut sauce - were perfectly balanced for colour, texture and taste. Butterflied prawns slicked with crunchy sesame seeds became heavenly with a dollop of a light, creamy pink fish sauce. Chunks of lamb marinaded in garam masala and slow-cooked can so often turn to mush; these richly flavoured mouthfuls retained texture and bite.
