Lokhandwala
Venue says Brand new Indian tapas style restaurant and cocktail bar, open in Fitzrovia for lunch, dinner and cocktails!

An Indian tapas restaurant from the team behind India's biggest food festival, The Grub Fest. The decor is extravagant, with big mirrors everywhere, elaborate decorative moulding and chandeliers. 

This contemporary take on Indian dining is served on small sharing plates, but there are also a few intriguing mains to choose from, such as cottage cheese and cashew sauce pie, 'mish mash bun' with a mix of seasonal vegetables, and Yorkshire pudding with a cashew crust.

Drinks come hot and cold, with boozey beverages encorporating spirits and wine mainly, with a ahdnful of beers and cider. If you're feeling adventurous or a bit rough, have a health shot – but these aren't the kind you get from the doc – these are like tiny smoothies containing almond milk, gooseberries, turmeric, ginger, poppy seeds and the like.

Lokhandwala is located close to Goodge street station.

The food style is British/Indian fusion with dishes like Yorkshire pudding with minced lamb and paneer pie. Some of the dishes were done well whilst others were not so good. We ordered about 4 tapas dishes and 2 larger dishes to share between 3 people. There was plenty of food to share between us all.

It's quite pricey but I suppose that comes with its location. The theme of the decor in the restaurant can be described as fairy garden but I didn't really understand the relevance of this with the menu and theme of the restaurant.

They have a variety of cocktails which are well presented but also pricey.

I came here during their soft launch. 


The food was really tasty! Although the menu is a little strange! A fusion style of Indian, in small tapas dishes. Though the portion sizes of the tapas was not as small as I expected, it was a little strange - we asked about the sizes and how many we should get between the two of us - our waitress said to get 4/5 tapas, one 'Imperial Jewel' (a main) and 2/3 sides between us. This was for lunch as well, and I thought that sounded like a lot, but because of this I got more expecting the portions to be tiny. We ended up getting 5 tapas, 1 side and 1 side and this was defiantly too much for us for lunch!


All round the food was great - I would highly recommend the prawn tapas and the chicken curry 'Imperial Jewel' which stood out to me as delicious! I would not recommend the lam sliders though - I wish we had not got them - they are not bad, but they were the most fusion style thing we ate - you get 2 mini hamburgers and fries and they were just average and not very Indian tasting.

Overall I would defiantly recommend coming here for a bite to eat.
