The Mosque Kitchen
No-frills, canteen-style dining room, serving basic but tasty meat and vegetable curries at low prices.
At The Mosque Kitchen they keep things plain and simple: what you see is what you get at this busy corner spot. Chicken, lamb or vegetable curry is served from a buffet counter on paper plates which struggle to support the generous portions. Takeaway or grab a seat at one of the communal tables and tuck in. Spices awaken your taste buds as lamb melts in your mouth. Tarka dhal and rice is like a warm hug from an Indian granny, but beware – she packs a punch if you happen upon one of the hidden chilis. Saag aloo is a highlight, smooth and garlicky with a hint of cumin and delicious scooped up with a piece of naan. If your waistband allows, maybe squeeze in a tempting sheekh kebab, too. Room for more? A separate counter entices with kulfi, ice-cream and sweet treats galore.
