SquareMeal Review of Kricket White City

Silver Award

This third Kricket (after Soho and Brixton) is part of the gleaming reboot of the former BBC Television Centre in White City. It makes the most of the re-developed surroundings with space for 100 diners, a separate bar, an outdoor terrace and counter dining for those who want to get up close and personal with the chefs in the open kitchen. Such a large space hasn’t translated into loss of atmosphere, though, with details such as cushion-laden banquettes keeping things cosy.

The menu is also bigger than at the other Krickets, featuring all the signatures (Keralan-fried chicken, crunchy bhel puris) alongside newer additions, such as the beautifully soft tandoori-roasted monkfish tail, which arrives massaged by a velvety coconut sauce. Elsewhere, sweet grilled pumpkin is matched to a thick makhani sauce and melted-down paneer (we’d recommend ordering some roti to mop your plate clean). Our top dessert pick is the gulab juman: miniature doughnut-style spheres which crumble in the mouth and are made sweet and fragrant by a carom seed crumble.

A strong selection of vegetarian options and an Indian-style Sunday roast are further reasons to visit, while prices remain relatively pocket-friendly. Cool, fun and served by friendly and knowledgeable staff, this latest Kricket hasn’t lost any of its rough-and-ready charm.
