TimeOut

TimeOut - 4/5

Wednesday, October 05, 2011 - Main courses were outstanding. Punjabi-style mutton curry, tender and cooked on the bone, had a rich tomato masala emboldened with meaty robustness and hits of shredded ginger. It was a hearty staple which would win the approval of the toughest of Indian truckers...Southern and coastal flavours also get a look-in. Mirch ki salan, in this case yellow sweet peppers simmered in a pounded paste of toasted sesame, coconut and peanuts, was sharpened with curry leaves, and worked well with another southern classic, aromatic lemon rice. Service typifies Indian hospitality and was attentive, waiting on every need.

This Is London

Fay Maschler - 3/5

Monday, September 05, 2011 - Aloo papri chaat delivered faithfully that mouthful of crisp/soft, sour/sweet, warm/cold that once tried is hard to resist ordering wherever you find it. Prawn jhal diye were Indian Ocean prawns wrapped in banana leaves and charred on the griddle. Just a bit more griddling would have usefully fixed the marinade. Chicken 65, pieces of the bird cooked in batter spiced with crushed black peppers and fried curry leaves, is not to be missed. A Hyderabad lamb biriyani, although not seemingly cooked by the dum method, was good, as were tarka dal, saag paneer and pindi channa, all rich with butter or ghee. Potli - spice bags akin in cooking function to muslin-wrapped bouquet garni - are part of the jolly homespun decor.
