SquareMeal Review of Delhi Grill

‘Dhabas are Indian street canteens with no frills or formalities. Customers visit for the food’, explains the beautifully designed menu at Delhi Grill. This being Islington, the appearance of the place has actually been carefully thought out, and the dining room looks resplendent in its artfully distressed glory, walls plastered with copies of the Hindustan Times. The well-priced food doesn’t disappoint either: the menu is kept short so everything can be done properly, with freshly ground spices, extensive marinating and slow cooking. Starters of tandoor-cooked lamb chops and sheikh kebabs come in at £2.95 each, while chicken karahi is £7.95 and tarka dhal £3.95. Drink Bangla, Kingfisher or Cobra beer, masala chai, or wine from the succinct, inexpensive list. Friendly service adds to the appeal.

I will keep it short and sweet – this is probably the best curry I have had in London. It is on a par with the Tayyabs and fits that mould by providing a limited but excellent menu at very low prices. If you have a bit of everything, you will not be disappointed.
