Riverside Lounge

It's not just the riverside setting that makes this Hornsey spot a popular proposition. It's located in the Pumphouse, for starters - an iconic north London building dating back to 1903. They've decked out the interior with an aesthetic paying homage to the more lavish sides of the Mughal Empire.

It's a decor that fits the food. The menu ranges from tandoori chicken, peshwari lamb tikka and saffron samosas to chicken jalfrezi, king prawn massala, murgh massala and nizami dum gosht - a north Indian dish of lamb cooked with spices and melon seeds. There's a weeked buffet, too.

The drinks list focuses on mocktails. Expect a 'punchless' pina colada, mojitos made with grapes or strawberry, and a 'solero' - mango juice and syrup mixed with fresh orange and lemon juice. Sweet milkshakes are also available.

The most charming, hospitable staff I have seen for a long time.  Incredible variety of food and very good value.  Some of the meat dishes however tasted like they had been cooked separately from the sauce so not a lot of flavour.  The building was incredibly impressive but was looking a bit unloved in places - we sat next to a wall which needed a good clean.  Would return just for the  warmth of the atmosphere.  Does not serve alcohol.


Worst returned I have ever been to. Everyone from our group had food poisoning. NOT Recommended.


What a fabulous place to enjoy Asian dishes, The place, location and deco is fabulous, from the fishes to fountain, stair case to lighting, it's an amazing restaurant, The Bar has exactly what you would need for a relaxing treat (a little pricee tho) You will love the detailed art work of the desert and fruit.
