Kasturi

Squaremeal Review of Kasturi ?

Showcasing the Pakhtoon cooking style of the North-West Frontier, Kasturi has ploughed its distinctive furrow unobtrusively on the City’s eastern fringe for nigh on a decade, eschewing the rich, buttery ghee of much traditional Anglo-Indian cuisine for a lighter & healthier approach. Share a selection of kebabs from the tandoor before tackling lal maas (a red-hot lamb dish from Rajasthan) or jeera chicken sautéed in ginger & garlic with cumin – both of which are specialities of the house. There’s also a short run through the ever-familiar curry house repertoire (dhansaks, bhunas, biryanis et al), & veggies have the option of a full thali in addition to the usual vegetable side dishes. ‘Express’ deals are just the ticket at lunchtime. As for the decor, Kasturi is smart, pale-toned & modern – if unremarkable.

I have been recommending this place to friends and colleagues, as this place is truly a hidden gem! Whether it is for my next...

An exceptional place. The cooking is delicious – some of the best I have eaten. It also has a decent wine list – try the very good Rijoja. Relatively inexpensive, so great value. Decor a bit dull and the tables a bit cramped, but it's ok if it's not full.
