With its “healthy and varied no-ghee cooking”, this rather “different” Marylebone Indian can seem “a real find”; its large modern interior does “lacks atmosphere”, but “obliging” staff offer consolation.

The critic visits this new “healthy Indian”, in Baker Street, which “does well” in its aim to “perk up those old favourites”.

This turns out to be a “high concept” Marylebone Indian, where “[t]he idea is to reject the stuff that helps make Indian food so delicious – ghee, cream, refined flours – replacing them with various probiotic yoghurts and wholegrains”. This is “not a comfortable lunch venue”, though, and food is, well, odd”. “Everything is red and strikingly similar in taste, apart from the chicken, which mimics lightly scorched Heinz Cream Of Tomato.”
