“A feast for the eyes is a cliché, but the dishes here are irresistible!” – Vineet Bhatia’s “very quiet and peaceful” townhouse in Chelsea provides “phenomenal”, “cross-over” Indian cuisine, and many reports suggest “it’s on a level no other can compete with”. But even fans concede “you need to get over the ‘second-mortgage’ prices”.STOP PRESS – in summer 2016 the restaurant closed to be reformatted – not yet sure what changes are afoot.
“Set in a beautiful townhouse in a side street near Sloane Square” – Vineet Bhatia’s “calm” and “elegant” Chelsea HQ is, for fans, “the definition of innovative Indian cuisine”, with each dish “a symphonic composition”; not everyone’s impressed though, and even supporters can find it “horrifically expensive”.
“The best Indian in London by a country mile”; Vineet Bhattia’s “elegant” Chelsea townhouse offers many “mind-blowing” dishes – “outstanding, even amongst the elite places” – in a set of “intimate and unstuffy” dining rooms; you spend a bomb of course, but it’s “worth it”.
“Quite simply the best Indian food I’ve ever eaten!”; Vineet Bhattia is a “magician”, whose “clever” cuisine enchants almost all visitors to this “classy and surprising” Chelsea townhouse; it’s an “intimate” experience, and the setting is on the “quiet” side for some tastes.
