Winner of the London Restaurant Award for Indian restaurant of the year, this upscale eatery first opened in Chelsea in 1990. Illuminated by glass candelabras, the interior is designed with handmade teak furniture, Moghul-style mirrored murals, and 1840’s sepia etchings depicting life in India. Seating is also available in the glass-enclosed conservatory, filled with lush tropical plants. The ever-changing menu features reinvented traditional recipes from across the subcontinent, including Goan green chicken curry and lamb pasanda (marinated meat with onion, coriander, and chile). Dishes are paired with selections from the comprehensive wine list, created by award-winning wine writer Matthew Jukes.
