You would not believe this unassuming little restaurant located next to Putney Bridge would be serving up cutting edge Indian cuisine. With menu items such as coconut venison, seared scallops and whole seabass you really are spoiled for choice.
We started with seared scallops with pickled beetroot, mango and chilli
Patra chaat colocasia leaves served with yoghurt, date and tamarind chutney, pomegranate, onion, tomato
Pounded coriander and goat’s cheese samosa Served with mint, tomato and beetroot chutneys
Achari broccoli broccoli florets in yoghurt and pickled spices
Ajwaini whole seabass cooked in the clay oven with carom seeds and tandoori marination
Kalimirch ka murgh malai tikka cooked in cashewnuts, yoghurt, fresh mint and black peppercorn
Baingan bharta roasted aubergine cooked with diced tomato, onion, cumin and ginger
With Pilau rice and of course garlic naan
Each dish was perfectly and individually spiced to give an array of flavours that when combined was amazing. The curry was not too creamy (yoghurt is used, not cream) or sweet and was lovely and delicate alongside the fresh zingy seabass. We always have a roasted aubergine dish if it’s on the menu and so obviously we went for the baingan bharta here which, alongside the achari broccoli, provided a lovely ‘bit on the side’.
As a cheeky dessert we tried the glorious trio of baked yoghurt
A real treat and I will definitely be back if in the area, as I want to try everything else!
