SquareMeal Review of Est India

A recent addition to pedestrianised Flat Iron Square, Est India’s self-proclaimed ‘modern urban feel’ translates as bare walls, wooden furniture, long tables and cosy booths for intimate get-togethers. The cooking shows its debt to the subcontinent’s street food with dosas, naan rolls, puffs, utthapam and small plates (perhaps deep-fried corn and potato tikki), before offering various tandooris, biryanis and regional specialities such as Bengali prawn curry, Kashmiri palak lamb with spinach or a desi burger. There are some genuine desserts too, including keer (rice pudding), syrupy gulab jamon dumplings and gajjar halwa (carrot cake) – plus kulfi on a stick. All-in tiffin menus (£7.95) are ideal for relaxed business lunches, and there are some fragrant and spicy teas if the short international wine list doesn’t appeal.
