Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Located just along from Haymarket station, Ignite provides a fiery culinary oasis for travellers and commuters fighting through the West End crowds. The interior is impressive, with warm, textured walls, stylish Moroccan pendant lights and crisp linen-covered tables. Happily, the food is notable too, with a striking depth of flavour across the dishes. A salmon kebab starter is tantalisingly tender and beautifully spiced, while for mains diners can choose from a plethora of meat, fish and vegetable curry options including Ignite’s take on the classics. The chicken in the rogan josh is moist and plentiful in a hot and tangy sauce, while those looking for something a bit different have options including maracel chicken, served in batter with peppers and ginger. The restaurant buzzes with a pleasing hum of conversation as locals and visitors pass through, their hunger and thirst favourably quenched.
