Chef-proprietor Imran Bashir set up this Pakistani café in Brixton Village Market during the summer of 2011. From a tiny kitchen a very concise menu is served: own-made samosas, curries, three types of thali (minced lamb, chicken or vegetable). The dishes are home-style, and the thalis served on a segmented stainless steel plate, in the subcontinental way. The dahl is rich and thick, the keema (mince) delicately spiced and with just the right amount of ghee, the raita creamy. Our only disappointment was the round naan breads – these are bought in, not fresh from an oven, but then they are complimentary. The masala chai is exemplary, and the prices for all dishes very low.
