Square Meal Review of The Painted Heron ?

It may be off the beaten track, but The Painted Heron is worth hunting down for its inventive, offbeat take on contemporary Indian cuisine. Where else in the capital would you find a surprisingly delicious side dish of sweet English strawberries in mild curry sauce – or an Asian riff on Lancashire hotpot? From tempura lotus roots or pigeon breasts cooked sous-vide with tamarind to spice-roasted black cod with crab pilau, it’s all a world away from the three-pot clichés of your average local curry joint. Desserts such as chocolate fondant could do with a little more TLC, although things perk up again with the zesty international wine list and top-notch cocktails. The handsomely furnished dining room and attentive staff are further pluses.

  1. In true British Indian style we started our meal with some crunchy, ungreasy popadoms accompanied by an intense, but delicious garlic chutney and a raspberry style chutney. The Painted Heron just can't stay away from their fruit, but actually it worked really well here. We quickly devoured all our delicious poppadoms and sauces with but a trace, things shortly went a little down hill thereafter. Our unusual starter of chestnut mushrooms stuffed with a paneer masala mixture which is then grilled in the tandoor oven was fine to say the least. Accompanied by more of that raspberry sauce and a spicy vegetable mixture on the side it all looked as if it would be steeped in deep flavour - but it wasn't at all. The masala spice was weak and and the paneer was completely lost in the earthy chestnut mushrooms - a lovely idea but one which needs some working on...
