Despite its capacious proportions, this glass-fronted canteen is often full to bursting with gregarious Anglo-Asian locals, who are treated to a sizzling floorshow as enthusiastic chefs wield karahi pots, sear skewers of meat, & slap rotis into tandoor ovens. Prices on the huge menu are equally keen, with a whole tandoori chicken just £6.90, & most curries (here termed ‘Lahore dishes’) at £7.90. Chicken tikka masala & other staples are all present & correct, but there’s ample scope for experimentation: try a Mumbai-style crunchy ‘chat’ snack to start, or sample the rich gravy of the paya (sheep’s trotter) curry. The freshly prepared tandoori breads are especially good (garlic & chilli naan, for instance), & the knickerbocker glory-like falooda is a house speciality for dessert. There’s no licence, but fresh juices & lassi more than make amends.
