Eating & Drinking Guide

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

Cocooned from the traffic beyond its windows, Ronaq’s interior is spacious and subdued – a blend of dark wood, copper and comfy banquettes. Attentive tweed-clad waiters talk you through a menu of mainly north Indian and Pakistani cooking, with signature mains such as lamb kathmandu or chersada balti which features marinaded barbecued chicken and lamb mince. There are plenty of vegetarian and tandoori options – hardy perennials like rogan josh and tikka masala – and some very tasty starters. Of these, tandoori mushroom stuffed with a spicy potato and pea filling, topped with Indian cheese, or the plump and fleshy king prawn tikka, grilled over charcoal, are both excellent. A main of garlic chilli king prawn masala is almost as good in its reduced sauce with onions and charred green peppers, but cauliflower-dominated vegetable shashlick is a bit disappointing. If you still have room, share some pistachio kulfi ice-cream, and for drinks try Ronaq’s very own pale ale on tap.
