This Indian brasserie has become well known for high-quality modern, Indian food. The menu makes use of local produce and gives it an Indian twist in dishes such as Hinduqushi Achar - chicken or lamb cooked with crushed ginger, garlic, chilli and kaffir lime, or Harinjury fry: stir fried venison with vegetables, azwan oyster sauce and ginger root. Main courses range from mild Rasam dishes to fiery karahi Akbori - marinated meat with vegetables, ginger, chilli and cumin. The decor is a little dated, but the very reasonable prices go some way to accounting for that, and they also offer takeaway at a 10 per cent discount.
