Squaremeal Review of Kennington Tandoori ?

With its private dining facilities and discreet location, this 30-year-old neighbourhood Indian is quite a favourite with Westminster politicos who want to get away from the fray. Inside, 1930s glitz meets contemporary mod cons, with earthy colours, dim, recessed lighting and the occasional oversized flower arrangement adding to the dramatic effect. The menu dresses up its offer with a few exotic-sounding names, but the result is “fabulous cuisine” according to one fan (although spicing is pretty vigorous). Tandooris, tikkas, dhansaks, jalfrezis and other curry-house standbys share the billing with Calcutta tamarind chicken, murgh xacuti (‘the rugby players korma’), lamb curry with shatkora (citrus fruit) and machli porichatu (a Keralan fish dish with delicate saffron and coconut sauce). Also check out the ‘classic specials’ from the KT bar – perhaps a ‘green’ Pimm’s or 007 (Champagne, vodka and angostura bitters).

In my defence my eyesight is poor and KTs (as it is affectionately known to the local punters and the many Members, such as the authoritatively waistlined Ann Widdecombe and John Prescott, who frequent it)...
