Square Meal Review of Dawaat at Johnston's ?

Following a change of tack and some re-branding, Johnstons Restaurant at the refurbished Strand Palace Hotel has morphed into Dawaat – a self-styled ‘Indian odyssey’ offering a mix of street food and regional specialities. Nibble on bhel-puris, onion pakoras and crunchy papdi chat before tackling Jaipuri lamb tikka, Goan pork xacuti or kozhi varutha (chicken cooked with South Indian spices, chilli, asafoetida and coconut). To finish, consider carrot halwa or shahi tukda – Indian-style bread-and-butter pudding with saffron-flavoured rabri (a sweetened yoghurt dish). All-day pre-theatre menus (£14/17 for two/three courses) are a boon for ticket-holders attending shows in the neighbourhood, and the drinks list has a user-friendly mix of cocktails, beers and wines by the glass.
