Indian Zilla restaurant takes its name from the Indian term for a small district or neighbourhood, an appropriate choice for a dining room in Barnes, London’s most village-y spot. Bright and modern, Indian Zilla is a carefully appointed space in which guests enjoy a relaxed atmosphere and fine service surrounded by bare brick and white paint, coloured glass and vibrant art, all set behind pretty frosted windows. Led by Head Chef Manoj Vasaikar, the Indian Zilla kitchen is focused on producing traditional Indian cuisine with Vasaikar’s own signature lightness of touch, picked up during his time with top Indian hotels then in London restaurants including Chutney Mary and Veeraswarmy. Blending recipes from the palaces of the Maharajas with the dishes eaten in Indian homes and the traditional street foods of the cities, Indian Zilla brings together old style regional cookery and modern techniques for an imaginative take on Indian cuisine.
