Square Meal Review of Chor Bizarre ?

Rather than draping Indian food in upscale gloss, Chor Bizarre favours trinkets and trappings collected from ‘thieves markets’ all over the subcontinent. Shelves lined with bric-a-brac, resplendent antique furnishings and oriental objets d’art capture a mood that mainstream curry houses simply can’t match, while a ‘Bollywood basement’ celebrates the hugely successful film genre with personally curated photos of Indian movie stars lining the walls. The ever-evolving menu features regional dishes such as South Indian crab cakes, Kashmiri rogan josh, venison masala and Punjabi roast aubergines with peas and coriander, alongside aloo tikki chaat, samosas, pakoras, batata puri and other ‘playful’ street-food favourites. A new ‘Chor experience’ (tasting menu) is in the pipeline, while spice-friendly wines chosen by expert Charles Metcalfe compete with 30 varieties of Indian tea.

Chor Bizarre London actually has quite a few Kashmiri dishes on the menu...

  1. Chor Bizarre is one of Mayfair's hidden little gems. The place has some great history and is coming in to its fifteenth year anniversary. When the restaurant originally opened it was London's first Indian tea bar, it is now known, and established for being the only restaurant in London serving a menu of traditional Kashmiri cuisine. On request, master chefs can be flown in all the way from Indian to cook a 36 course authentic Kashmiri feast, a meal usually cooked for Indian King's...

    Her Favourite Food :: Chor Bizarre

    Chor Bizarre is one of the strangest restaurants I've been to in London, and the reason for this is the decor.

    The name ‘Chor Bizarre’ means ‘Thieves Market’ and the restaurant’s interior has definitely been inspired by this. No two tables are the same, chairs and even sofas don’t match each other and the room itself is filled with strangest collection of trinkets and treasures...
