Working in Soho on and off for the last 7 years I’ve pretty much visited all the best it has to offer for a good lunch. So when the new Indian Street food restaurant opened up it was a welcomed addition.
At the time of writing, I’ve had a pilau rice box nearly 10 times and I’ve never had a food that’s so consistent in quality and taste.
The concept is simple.
STEP ONE Pick either a Wrap / Rice Bowl / Salad Bowl
STEP TWO Pick Medium or BIG
STEP THREE Pick your filling, BUTTER CHICKEN / LAMB & BONE MARROW / PANEER
STEP FOUR Add the extras, Lettuce / PILAU Slaw / Pickled Ginger / Red Onion/ Shoestring Bhaji / Fresh Chillies (Sauce: Mint & Coriander Yogurt / Mango & Apricot Chutney)
My choice is a rice, lamb, all the extras minus the slaw and no sauce.
Hands down, this is one of the best lamb curry’s you will eat. The lamb is always super soft and tender it has a somewhat melt in the mouth quality. The flavours are enhanced with the use of bone marrow which just adds takes you another level of taste town and in this town, everything is yummy.
I’ve also had the butter chicken twice, it’s good as well but the lamb is on another level.
Pilau is ideal for lunch but you can grab a box and sit in as well. It’s not a restaurant per se and is focused on the lunch time and take away crowd.
2 locations nearby, I prefer the Goodge st store.
