As co-founders of the furniture retailer Dwell, it’s no surprise that the brains behind this new Indian restaurant-cum-cocktail bar have invested it with a real eye for detail. From the stunning five-metre oak bar (cut from a single tree) to drinks such as a zingy, Aperol-based negroni, first impressions of the bijou site bode well. Bare-brick walls and refurbished industrial chairs add to the handsome look, so settle in for food that combines Indian home-style recipes from the owner’s mum with professional polish, courtesy of ex-Benares chef Raju Rawat. Everything arrives on small sharing plates, from excellent, creamy and crunchy chaat and spiced mince patties to marinated lamb chops, pollock curry spiked with fenugreek and karela (bitter gourd with lentils). Just add cheery service and a lively buzz, and you’ve got the makings of a real winner.
