This west London Indian restaurant takes its name from a beautiful slave girl supposedly entombed alive by the Mughal emperor, Akbar, for catching the eye of his son, the crown-prince Salim. It's a tear-jerker of a tale, to say the least. Sagely, this King Street spot concentrates on the more tender parts of this popular Indian story - apparently they cook their dishes with similar love and passion.
It's a step above your usual curry house, with the presentation heading more toward that of fine dining. The plates of charcoal-cooked king prawns lightly dusted with dill, mint, coriander and ginger, the char-grilled lamb chops marinated with fresh garlic and garam masala, and the baked aubergine steaks stuffed with paneer and sesame seeds are all artfully arranged.
Recognisable curries such as dhansaks, jalfrezis, vindaloos and kormas also feature, alongside various biriyani topped here with puff pastry. Keep an eye out for thalis, special menus and some good-value set lunches, too.

This is fantastic Indian restaurant which I discovered whilst visiting a friend in Chiswick. The food is delicious and fairly priced. The staff are eager to please and very accommodating. I highly recommend this restaurant to those looking for a good curry.
I visited this restaurant by chance and must say that I was blessed with superb service and very good food. The staff were very obliging and made various suggestions as I am not familiar with Indian food. The menu was varied and the portions of a reasonable size. I also liked the drinks menu too. I hope to return...
