It's all about modern interpretations of traditional Indian dishes at this attractive Indian restaurant in Croydon. Decor and presentation mark it out as a step above your typical curry house, too.
A la carte options such as crayfish salad with Mumbai onion, pepper, avocado, coconut and lemon juice, salmon and cod pakora, and a Keralan alappuzha fish curry with salmon, ginger, cocum, coconut and curry leaves are served alongside tasting menus - available with matching wines, too.
Indian Sunday brunches also prove popular, with oothappam pancakes, Indian omelettes and egg bhurji alongside chicken tikka, roasted leg of lamb Hyderabad Nawab style, tandoori paneer and dhahi wada - black gram dumplings in yoghurt, mustard and cumin. You can team it all with Champagne, should you wish.
