Step down into the basement dining room at this plush spot and be greeted by chic interiors, a duo of open plan kitchens complete with impressive tandoors, and a feeling of modernity. The eatery originally opened back in 1995 and by 2001 had been awarded a coveted Michelin-star, the first Indian restaurant in the UK to receive the honour. Fast forward to present day and after a lengthy refurb the doors are once again open, with Karunesh Khanna (of Belgravia’s Amaya) and Manav Tuli (of Chutney Mary) dishing up regional dishes with contemporary twists. We recommend kicking things off with their ‘Ghee-Washed Old Fashioned’ – the Pedro Ximénez and fig marmalade add moreish sweetness to the potent concotion. Starter-wise, don’t miss the well-spiced rabbit seekh kebab filled with raisin and tomato, and a portion of full of flavour chicken tikka. Follow these with Keralan curry, where plump prawns sit in a rich, coconutty sauce. As we leave, we take a peek upstairs at the bright and airy first-floor dining room, a new addition since reopening.
