SquareMeal Review of Flora Indica

This dining room at this good-looking Indian is a stylish blend of tweed, maroon leather and marble, while you'll find an accomplished cocktail bar in the basement. The menu specialises in India’s central and northern regions, mainly served in small portions for sharing. This doesn't offer the best value however, with the likes of pickled octopus leg with chilli-flecked samphire tempura being too dainty to justify the price. We recommend the rich curries however, from Bengali-style monkfish and king prawn, to slow-braised Suffolk lamb rogan josh, mopped up with Red Leicester-crusted naan breads. The tasting menu offers a good-value overview, its optional glass of Champagne feeling appropriate for the special-occasion mood the restaurant cultivates. We have found spotless service to be the restaurant’s trump card, while the globe-spanning, accessible wine selection is geared towards those looking to explore. Having ditched its original, slightly laboured menu in favour of a contemporary take on India, Flora Indica's evolving to succeed.

Relaxed unrushed service this is far away from being a typical "indian"restaurant. The place is interesting with Steampunk decor very modern furnishings and is comfortably arranged with armchairs to lounge in before one sits at table. My dish arrived in good time a clean plate with Octopus that is so hard to get right but was perfect here from the Clay Oven. Very simple & minimalist cooking but its all packed in microscopically to the dish.Who needs ladles of sauce? The desert-was equally impressive-simple skilled & condensed.Quite sophisticated & good value for the amount of skill & work entailed. Felt satisfied. £20 the 2 dishes.Yum. It wasnt too crowded and the service by 2 (Polish?)waitresses was aedequate. Would go again.

Beautiful plates of tasty Indian cuisine. Friendly wait staff who were knowledgeable and helpful. Not your traditional Indian restaurant as the plates of food were more delicate. Fantastic cocktails. Everything was well priced.
