Half-hidden from view behind the thrusting towers of Canary Wharf, the handsome three-storey Georgian building that houses this contemporary Indian has served variously as an excise house, a tavern
of questionable repute and a dock office. These days, it sports a conservatory dining room and a striking cuboid glass extension at the back, as well as a seriously revved-up menu. Choose from a
roster of customary curries and more fancy modern interpretations ranging from Mumbai ‘street food’ snacks to scallops with chilli and coriander dip or spice-crusted sea bass with crushed potatoes,

Following the shiny marble floor I was led to the spacious private conservatory... More from The Food Connoisseur »
This is the first time i'd heard of Dockmaster's House. Tucked away down a off beaten road where footfall is scarce - except during working hours when it’s a vibrant area. The dock just around the corner is always packed and full of predictable chain restaurants - it’s a real shame these people don’t know that something delicious is only lurking round the corner. We arrived and had some street food nibbles to start - all of which were very good and left me salivating for more - especially the moist morsels of chicken tikka... More from londonfoodaholic »
Dockmaster’s House is not a restaurant I’d heard many things about but after being brought-up with traditional, home-cooked Indian food, I was excited to experience Indian fine-dining. Situated between Westferry and West India Quay DLR stations, Dockmaster’s House has a stunning exterior... More from Ramblings of a Food Addict »
