Squaremeal Review of Potli ?

Set on the Hammersmith-Chiswick borders, this colourful modern enterprise offers a bazaar experience with its take on Indian street food. Journey through the subcontinent with appetisers such as puffed flour and semolina crisps from Mumbai’s Chowpatty beach, sesame chilli paneer from Delhi’s Chandni Chowk market, and karara crab with fiery dynamite sauce from Kolkata’s Chowringhee Lane. We especially enjoyed the juicy tandoori-baked Badami masala lamb chops spiced with ginger and garam masala. Alternatively, try a curry of whole sea bream simmered in a hot, sweet-and-sour Goan sauce, or a railway mutton curry cooked on the bone. Hiron laal maas is another speciality – prime venison haunch simmered in a rich, generously spiced Rajasthani sauce. Further highlights include an inexpensive weekday set lunch and a family lunch menu at weekends. For a tipple, choose from various fragrant or spiced Martinis or stick to the wine list which comes with helpful pairing notes.

This was the second time we visited Potli Indian restaurant in Hammersmith. We also had a take away once before. We are local residents and visited this restaurant when it first opened. The food was bland and nothing special. We put this down to teething problems. We also had a take away when they first opened. Most of the order had not been delivered. We waited almost 2 hours for the food to arrive even though we live round the corner. The lamb dish tasted like it had been stewing overnight in...

It just chanced upon this hidden jewel a few months back & I have become a regular since. I visit India regularly & can tell this for a fact that not in many placed you will find the food to be so authentic & fresh. The Pork Vindaloo would take you to Goa quicker than you can imagine & the Chilli Ginger Martini is awesome. Do feel lucky to get a table there on weekends! There I go again…

    Binny's Kitchen & Travel diaries :: Binny's Kitchen: Potli - an Indian Market Kitchen

    I first came across Potli while watching TV! Had seen that there was a new show on called “Chefs on Trial” on which different restaurants were interviewing for a new head chef. The episode I happened to start with was the one in which Potli was featured.
    As I saw each episode, I grew in curiosity and decided that I had to go and try it for myself, especially the Tandoori Chicken, which was one of the dishes made on the show.
