As the title suggests, the restaurant offers some high quality food at great prices. We went for lunch which had a short list of set menus you can choose from. 2 courses - 15GBP, 3 courses - 18GBP. We both chose the 3-course menu.
My starter: Samosa Chaat - A vegetable samosa sitting on a bed of chickpeas with a yogurt sauce. Delicious.
My main: Saag Ghosht - some great pieces of tender, juicy lamb, cooked to perfection. It comes covered in a garlic, cumin sauce which was just as good as the lamb - I helped myself, shamelessly, to dunking the accompanying naan bread until there wasn't a drop of the sauce left. Your main is served with sides of rice (or bread), Aloo Jeera (potatoes) and Takda Dal (lentils) - which are all great.
My dessert: Pistachio Kulfi - I was already full before this dessert arrived. Thankfully, the dessert is a small-medium portion but a great way to end the meal. Best Kulfi I've had.
Ms Wine had -
Starter: Chicken Tikka - two generous chunks of marinated chicken to get your appetite going. It was tender and delicious.
Main: Murg Makhanwala - a more elaborate chicken tikka served in an outstanding tikka sauce. Spice factor was just right for her (mild-medium) and great for soaking your rice up with.
Dessert: Tandoori Annanas - who knew that grilled marinated with cinnamon and honey would be so tasty? Fantastic idea. It's a good alternative to the Kulfi if customers prefer something lighter and alternative.
We also had one of the best cocktails in London (as far as my experience is concerned) to date: the passionfruit chilli martini. A vodka-based cocktail that tasted as good as it smelled. The passsionfruit comes through quite nicely, along with some lemon juice to take the sweetness down to a manageable level. It's got a spicy finish with every sip. Quite a delight.
The staff were on point throughout our lunch. Kind and welcoming. And what I appreciated the most of the experience is that all of this came with the bonus of a very tranquil space and environment. Although we went when it had only about a 1/3 of the restaurant occupied, the music was quiet and calm setting the tone for the customers to have a nice, peaceful experience. Something you don't get very often in the likes of Soho, so it was a great change of pace.
You'll be seeing more of me, no doubt.
