Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2018/19 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £7.95 (+p&p).

No jangling sitars, meat or shiny drapes. Is it really an Indian restaurant? This refreshing experience comes courtesy of Ranjit Kaur’s love for the traditional meals of her Punjabi roots. Diners squeezed along wooden benches in the minimal café-style seating are the beaming beneficiaries of years of kitchen craft in her fingertips. In this veggie wonderland, following Indian tradition, the daal is king. There’s a show-stopping sabji, wonderfully rich daily daal and crispy aloo tikki which combine mild heat with expert knowledge of South Asian spices. The tangy chickpeas will have best friends fighting over them, while the scrambled vegetable paneer is a glorious tangle of spices, garden peas and melted cheese crowning a paratha. The breads are equally delicious – just as well because food this good without bread would be criminal. With so much choice, a thali is great for combining a little of everything. It’s always packed but budging up is part of the fun, and if you can’t cram in that last wafer-thin roti, it’s an ice-breaking offering to your very near neighbour.
