An “excellent overall” experience can be had at this “stylish (both food and decor)” Indian three-year-old near Sloane Square, behind Cadogan Hall. The owner is ex-Tamarind executive chef Peter Joseph, who was raised in Tamil Nadu, and whose variety of offerings includes a “very good tasting menu” as well as a bottomless brunch, and menus dedicated to vegans, pre-theatre and Sunday roast.

Ex-Tamarind executive chef, Peter Joseph (raised in Tamil Nadu) is cooking up a storm at his “smart” September-2018 two-year-old, “tucked away behind Cadogan Hall” near Sloane Square. Even a reporter who considers it “expensive” feels “it’s certainly amongst London’s Top-5 Indians”, and there’s little but high esteem for its “refined”, “thoughtfully prepared” cooking: “distinct and light” dishes featuring “favourite flavours but raised to a fine dining experience, including a tasting menu option”.

Ex-Tamarind executive chef, Peter Joseph (raised in Tamil Nadu) is cooking up a storm at his “smart” September-2018 newcomer, “tucked away behind Cadogan Hall” near Sloane Square.

Summary

This September 2018 opening took over the 90-cover site, opposite Cadogan Hall, that was formerly Canvas (RIP). It’s the brainchild of chef Peter Joseph (raised in Tamil Nadu, and ex-executive chef of Mayfair’s Tamarind) and offers modern Indian cuisine, with British influences.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
