SquareMeal Review of
Look through the intricately decorated glass frontage of this “delicious local Indian” and you’ll see an expansive dining room done out in white, with vivid red and black chairs, some abstract art on the walls, spotlights in the ceiling and shelves of bottles stretching the length of the place. Taking its inspiration from the ‘sun-kissed shores’ of the Lakshadweep archipelago, Laksha Bay offers a regional taste of the subcontinent from Hyderabadi duck with cashews and pistachios to Jaipur chicken garnished with crispy potatoes. Other chef’s specials worth noting include crab masala, ‘railway lamb’ and Bengali-style king prawns, while tandooris, biryanis and a few ‘old favourites’ such as chicken bhuna flesh out the repertoire. Set menus are great value if you fancy sharing. “Very helpful staff” are happy to advise, and the restaurant offers takeaways and local deliveries within a five-mile radius.
