Inspired by the roadside cafes of North India, this Maida Vale eatery specialises in fusion dishes that are as beautiful to look at as to eat. Vibrant colours and meticulous presentation make each plate worthy of an Insta post, though we’re pretty sure the aroma will have you diving in as quickly as possible.
A selection of chaats (Indian snacks) kicks off the menu, which is helpfully split into vegetarian and non-vegetarian starters and curries. Keep your eye out for gems such as pav bhaji (delicious buttery buns rarely found outside Mumbai) and baingan bhartha (slow-roasted aubergine) among the usual favourites such as tandoori chicken and lamb rogan josh. An impressive drinks menu, including wines, beers, spirits, cocktails and softs, is sure to satisfy even the trickiest customer, as are the generous portions and reasonable prices.
