Squaremeal Review of Mint Leaf Lounge ?

The dramatically lit bar and its fine cocktails take centre stage at this expansive City Indian, but for all its nightclub posing, Mint Leaf Lounge also serves "delightful" modern food that's worthy of attention. Combining deft spicing with an iconoclastic, seasonal approach to ingredients that's light years from three-pot curry-house clichés, it offers a feast of possibilities – from clever starters such as asparagus tempura with fennel, cumin and coriander or a shakarkandi salad involving roast sweet potato, pepper, pickled beetroot and puffed quinoa to bold mains including tandoori poussin or pot-roast rabbit spiced with fennel, mustard, chilli and onion seeds. Service is "discreet" and the wine list majors on heavyweight vintages at expense-account prices, although there are some spice-friendly Rieslings too. "Swanky" if stygian by night, Mint Leaf lounge is brighter at lunch – though it's hardly a place for sun worshippers.

I had lunch with an old friend for a good catch up and “friday curry with beers”. I worked at Angel Court many years ago, so it was a walk down memory lane for me. For a Friday, it was very empty but we liked the decor and the welcome was lovely. The menu was very interesting, so we ordered with great anticpation. Duck and scallops to start, lamb pepper fry and pork vindaloo to follow. The starters arrived and were fantastic. really well cooked and seasoned with perfectly balanced spices. The main...

What I don't love about this restaurant isn't even worth mentioning. We eat here a lot and the food is absolutely heavenly. It's so far removed from your bog-standard MSG and grease-laden curryhouse nosh that its virtually unrecognisable by comparison. But the food is innovative, using local and seasonal ingredients as well as sustainable fish, producing clean, fresh flavours with the traditional slap of slice that you need to remind you that you are, after all, eating Indian food. Starters are vibrant...
