You would think being an Indian restaurant that there would be halal meat on the menu but there is not. This place is highly rated, so I decided to check out what the hype was about. I don’t understand the hype about this place. Space is crowded and uncomfortable and only holds 26 covers. The food is overpriced for what it is.
There are plenty of non-meat options. The food was good but definitely not worth the price. The food was nice, light and well balanced, but I’ve had better.
Heres what I ordered
Gunpowder aloo chaat £6
Warm and soft pieces of whole potatoes was a new element in a chaat. The flavours were well balanced out, but a little too much sauce and not enough filling.
Whole wild sea bass in mustard sauce – £16.50
Quite a small piece of fish, but it was deboned and the subtle flavours worked well with the way it was cooked. The sauce was mild and most of the taste came from the charred bits of crispy skin.
Saag with tandoori paneer – £12
3 bits on paneer in a mild and thick sauce. Like with most of the things I ate, the flavours were balanced but just lacked intensity and heat from spices. The food really lacked authenticity and just didn’t have enough intensity when it came to spices and overall taste.
aromatic rice in banana leaf (v) £3.50
I only ordered 4 items no drinks and it was £45.
