The pick of the poppadoms when it comes to Indian restaurants in Docklands, this lavishly converted three-storey building is quite a package with its stunning cuboid glass extension, conservatory, cellar bar and two private dining rooms. Despite the odd quibble about ‘bland, overpriced food', the kitchen generally comes up trumps with a menu that bypasses most curry house clichés in favour of amuse-bouches, fancy presentation, arty drizzles and crossover ideas such as chilli scallops with spicy anise squid and apricot sauce. Otherwise, Bombay street-food platters make a lively opener, ahead of Malabar monkfish, stir-fried beef bhuna or grilled ginger lamb chops with cumin potatoes. Fixed-price menus (£20/25 for two/three courses) include a complimentary Champagne cocktail, while a new ‘courtesy car service' should suit customers who have succumbed to the enterprising wine list.
