Restaurants, Indian Fitzrovia

One of three Sagar restaurants – the others are in Hammersmith and Covent Garden – this Fitzrovia branch serves a similar menu of traditional South Indian vegetarian cuisine.

Familiar regional Indian dishes such as aloo ghobi, chana masala and vegetable biryani feature alongside less well-known South Indian options such as dahi vada (lentil doughnuts soaked in cold homemade yoghurt) and a selection of uthappam – Indian lentil pizzas. Much of the menu is vegan, nut-free or wheat-free, too.

There is a short wine list and four beers (Kingfisher, Heineken, Becks and Pils), as well as a number of speciality drinks such as lassi, Kashmiri falooda and kesar badam milk – saffron flavoured almond milk.

As a vegetarian it’s always a treat when I can eat anything on the menu. The food at Sagar is delicious and had just the right amount of spice for me. It’s in a very convenient location, nearby to Covent Garden and many of the West End theatres. Unfortunately on my recent visit, the service was slow and one of the items we had ordered never showed up, so we asked to have it removed from the bill. If the service was better, Sagar would definitely be a 4 or 5 star but as it is, I feel it’s a 3.

Fantastic food, great service, very helpful staff, good portion sizes, and reasonably priced. What more could you ask from a restaurant? I would particularly recommend the poori which is a puffed bread and is delicious and slightly sweet, it complements the main dishes excellently.
