SquareMeal Review of Tandoor Chop House

This small, curious restaurant plants its flag firmly in comfort-food territory, with a short menu of Anglo-Indian combinations designed for mass appeal. The work of Ennismore (the group behind the Hoxton Hotel brand), Tandoor Chop House strikes a casual tone with bare, closely packed tables and an easy-going crowd of young professionals and families – its proximity to Theatreland and Trafalgar Square explains its please-all ethos. The decent-value menu is populated by quirky ideas including fried onion (bhaji) rings and coal-roasted pineapple for dessert, but it's inadequately supported by hit-and-miss cooking: moreish, minced Dexter beef keema naan bread arrives alongside limp, tame ‘gunpowder’ chips; must-order, Amritsari-marinated and charcoal-blackened lamb chops are followed by a badly executed, chai-flavoured crème brûlée. With its brief, Spanish-favouring wine list, range of G&Ts and polite service, this chop house could be a winningly unique option if cooking improves.

We visited last week for the first time and we are already booked to come back this Friday. The food is absolutely fantastic. We eat out at least 3 times a week in central London and this is by far the best for a long time. The flavours are amazing and all dishes cooked to perfection. They have got the atmosphere and the service spot on. I have already sent friends there on recommendation and cant wait to go back this week !!! It is a must!! Teri
