Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2018 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £7.95 (+p&p).

Ronaq opened its doors in 2018 looking better than ever, with a subtle refurbishment giving the restaurant the same understated, luxury feel as its sister restaurant in New Waverley. Booths have been re-upholstered and elegant touches, such as mirrored mosaic tiling and soft, contemporary lighting makes this the more romantic, intimate Ronaq establishment. The restaurant is now licensed and boasts a carefully selected wine list and a well-stocked bar. All this style hasn’t replaced the substance of the dishes however; fish starters are superb with the black pepper machli comprising two hearty, delicately spiced seabass fillets, while the haddock tikka holds its own against a richly spiced marinade. The showstopper is the tandoori king prawn balti, with huge, thick, grilled prawns cooked in a wok with roast potatoes, fresh tomatoes and coriander. Be sure to order one of Ronaq’s exquisite fluffy naans to soak up the incredible flavours.
