Squaremeal Review of Flora Indica ?

Named after a 17th century Indian botany catalogue, this well-heeled newcomer follows a Brits-discovering-India theme and runs with it – occasionally in baffling directions. The beautiful two-level space is dressed with tweed, maroon leather and marble, with a Doctor Who-style police box at the entrance. There is an explanation but herein lies the baffling aspect; thankfully it’s a non-intrusive, somewhat fun aspect too. The menu is inspired by the period that introduced kedgeree, piccalilli relish and the G&T to Britain, with a gin-heavy cocktail list to match. European standards are peppered with Indian flavours, such as ham terrine spiced with achar piccalilli, or smoked venison with a side of masala-spiced new potatoes. Our 63°c duck egg starter was curious and appealing: an oozing egg cooked sous vide, atop smokey mayonnaise and surrounded by shards of spiced potato crisps. A grilled aubergine dish paired with fried balls of cumin and masala paneer was another tasty balance of textures, but the smoked venison smelt inedible, indicating serious room for improvement. Judging by the overall quality, refinement and happy diners we witnessed, such missteps are likely teething problems. Desserts include beetroot jam doughnuts with juniper cream, while the wine list skips around the globe offering good choice in every price bracket. The food prices creep towards special occasion territory, but Flora Indica is a welcome touch of class for the area. If the restaurant can address a few food issues and communicate its time-travel concept successfully, it deserves to succeed.
