Not much changes at this Indian veteran, which has been peddling its wares to a loyal crowd for more than 15 years. Inside, the decor now seems quaintly old-fashioned – a rather faded mirror of better times, despite the crisp white tablecloths & polished crockery. The Clipper thali is a popular order, comprising deep-fried chicken ‘65’, chicken tikka, mushroom ‘lollipops’, onion bhaji & shish kebab – a king’s spread fit for four hungry mouths. Otherwise, dishes such as chicken or lamb biryani flavoured with saffron are worth seeking out, along with southern-style fish or crab curry inspired by the flavours & cuisines of Kerala & Goa. There are cocktails & some light-drinking wines to cut through the heat & spice, though most opt for Mongoose or Cobra beer.
