About Maira Indian Cuisine

At this Clerkenwell curry house, you’ll find traditional Indian dishes. Maira Indian Cuisine, formerly known as Café Saffron, continues to serve up the home-grown dishes locals love. Inside this quaint restaurant, you’ll find traditional white table settings with brown leatherette chairs and warm orange lampshades. Although guests can dine in, the restaurant offers the entire menu to take away.   

Maira provides online ordering with payment methods on its website and delivers food to diners in the vicinity, so you can chow down on those authentic Indian dishes in the comfort of your own home. The restaurant also runs its own loyalty scheme for regulars where guests can earn points from every £1 spent and redeem them on future orders. Those that choose to dine in can experience the newly improved service while sharing something from the halal certified menu.

Add authenticity to your meal by sipping on a creamy Indian drink such as mango lassi to start. If you want to keep it simple, order the set meals for one or two people including onion bhaji, chicken tikka bhuna, vegetable curry, and sides of pilau rice and naan. Begin with an appetiser of barbecued tandoori duck or the malai lamb chops, which are marinated in cream cheese, yoghurt and ginger before being char-grilled.

For mains, try the chef special of lamb pistachio with lamb chops cooked in ground pistachio and almonds in a yoghurt sauce. One of Maira Indian Cuisine’s signature dishes include the achar chicken, which is braised deboned chicken in onion, ginger, garlic and garam masala, developing into a thick curry sauce. If you’re looking for something spicy, tuck into the goan fish curry which is cooked in freshly ground spices and cooled off with coconut milk. Other Indian curry favourites such as madras, vindaloo, rogan, and biryani feature on the menu. You also add the usual poppadums, chutney and cheesy naan sides to your order.
