SquareMeal Review of Salt’n Pepper

Something of a legend in its home country, this is the first London outing for Pakistan’s Salt’n Pepper group – founded some 30 years ago by renowned hotelier, restaurateur and food writer Mahmood Akbar. The main restaurant is done out in contemporary pastel shades with lots of natural light and fresh flowers, plus the bonus of a covered decked area for alfresco dining. Barbecued meats, grills and kebabs are one of the mainstays of the native cuisine and they feature heavily on the menu, alongside anglicised house specialities such as the SNP chicken club sandwich or a ginger and green chilli burger; also expect a good showing of baltis, biryanis, kormas and other curry-house staples. To drink, try a glass of shikanjabeen (mint-flavoured Pakistani lemonade). Weekday lunchtime platters (from £9.20) are tailor-made for Covent Garden’s shoppers, workers and tourists.

The restaurant is light and airy, a pleasant place for a meal. Service is friendly, but inexperienced. The food is fine, but ordinary. Pre-theatre menu is good value.
