A cool customer indeed, chef/proprietor Manoj Vasaikar's purple-fronted Hammersmith Indian may have been designed in accordance with the mystical principles of Vastu Shastra, but the food is what really matters here. Bypass the regulation samosas and kormas in favour of sophisticated, more inventive creations – perhaps prawn and aubergine kharphatla, marinated ‘gymkhana' lamb chops or lobster-tail balchao with Goan jaggery and spices. There are plans to condense the menu, keeping the most popular dishes but adding a rotating list of specials based on the seasons or Vasaikar's regular regional ‘fiestas'. Staff know their stuff, and the wine list – the work of two master sommeliers – is a perfect fit for the light but flavourful contemporary cuisine.
