“In Forest Hill… who knew?”; this “off-the-beaten-track” culinary mecca has, in fact, been “brilliant for years” (it opened in 1985) and “these guys just keep on delivering the goods”. It’s not just the “magnificent cooking”, often featuring game, or “seriously divine cocktails” (some of them “super spicy”) – the ambience too “is strikingly elegant given the mundane locale” of the distant south London ’burbs. Top Tip – “best experienced when they do their special seasonal menus and events”.
“A marvel in a suburban desert” – this Forest Hill “jewel” takes “South London Indian cuisine to a new level and puts it equal with the best in the West End and City”. “The cooking is refined and inventive, beautifully spiced and seasoned, and looks as good as it tastes, while service is amiable rather than expert and the decor rather smart”. “I’ve been going there for over 20 years and it remains relevant and delicious with a constantly evolving menu and drinks list”. “If you live anywhere remotely within striking distance, you have to try it out!”
“A stalwart of the Forest Hill dining scene that’s worth a trip into SE London!”. For over 20 years, this surprisingly “exotic” modern Indian has “had people beating a path to its door” on account of its “delightful service” and some of London’s best Indian cooking – “eye-catching”, “subtly-spiced and aromatic” dishes “with intense and unique flavours”.
It’s “worth the trek” across south London to this “sensory experience” in Forest Hill. The modern Indian cuisine – amongst London’s best – has huge “subtlety of flavour” and the “unfailingly friendly and positive staff” are “exceptional”.
