It may be pitched next to the home of Chelsea Football Club, but Kishmish isn’t your average post-match vindaloo and lager haunt. Following a stylish revamp, it sets out its stall with elegantly decorated chairs, illuminated glass panels, swirling blue fabrics, clever illumination and a mini palm tree at the centre of things. The kitchen matches the decor with a line-up of artistically presented dishes that are a long way from the curry house norm: try tamarind-infused char-grilled pigeon breast with an Asian take on bubble and squeak, Malabar-style sea bream with wild mushroom kedgeree or honey-glazed ‘khatti meethi’ duck with spinach mash and pineapple salsa. There are smart wines and exotic cocktails for the trendies, plus Kingfisher, Calvors and Cobra for those with a big thirst.
