The decor is modern yet a bit too dark for my liking. For some strange reason, it made me feel like I was in a submarine or under the sea and, with hindsight, I should have taken that as a hint as to what to choose from the menu. There is a fairly big a la carte menu (for a fine dining restaurant) as well as a six-course tasting menu; both of which are excellent value for money (a la carte = £29 for two courses and approx. £35 for three courses, tasting = approx £45). I chose thinly sliced veal to start, sea bass for main course and cheese to finish, and my sister chose tempura soft shell crab, followed by suckling pig and then pear and almond tart. We shared a portion of spinach and a portion chips. Clearly, Mr Nadra is a demon at cooking fish and if I was to go again to this restaurant, I would stick to fish for both the starter and the main; his fish dishes really are in a different league to his meat dishes. One slightly frustrating issue was that most of the dishes were served at temperatures which were way too hot to eat; it seemed as if the plates had been put under the hot plate for a long time and which would perhaps also explain why the suckling pig was overcooked. My only other complaint was that the spinach was so laced in garlic that it was pretty much inedible. Cheese and pudding selections were good. Overall, not a bad place to go for a sophisticated supper in Chiswick but, I'm afraid, there are other restaurants in Chiswick which I will be returning to much more quickly than Restaurant Michael Nadra.
