A “delicious and interesting fusion of the familiar and unfamiliar” – and of chef Ravinder Bhogal’s mixed Indian, East African, Middle Eastern and British heritage – this Marylebone three-year-old is “always delightful”. “A quaint layout with comfy print cushions makes it feel smaller than it is”, while “staff are friendly if perhaps not always expert”.

Ravinder Bhogal’s “magic touch with flavour” helps create “wonderful and interesting dishes” at her Marylebone yearling (whose cuisine reflects the chef-patron’s mixed heritage with flavours from East Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Britain). With its “informal service” and “cosy” style it’s “a perfect venue for culinary exploration”.

“Marina’s review was spot on: this clubbable and laid-back newcomer is a triumphant, kick-you-in-the-crotch winner where diners spontaneously rave to neighbours about their meals!” – so say fans of food writer Ravinder Bhogal’s “cosy” Marylebone debutante, which mashes up flavours from East Africa, the Middle East, Asia and the Britain. A big minority though are nonplussed – they say that “when you read the menu is looks adventurous” but claim the end result is “overhyped” and “bland”.

For 30 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).
