“So many layers of taste… a throwback to living in India” – their “fantastic take on subcontinental flavours and textures” has helped blaze a trail for Rik Campbell and Will Bowby’s street-food brand. Since mid-2015, their “always interesting and very tasty” bites have taken them from a Pop Brixton shipping container to three permanent outlets in Soho, Brixton and White City’s TV Centre. “Busy” Soho in particular is “great for counter dining”. Top Menu Tips – “spot-on bhel puri”, “fab chai, dazzling deep-fried chicken and delicious halwa”.
“A strong modern twist on Indian flavours and good vibes all round” make Rik Campbell and Will Bowlby’s “hustling and fast-paced” Soho dive (“it’s not a place to linger”) a worthy success to their phenomenal Brixton original (in a shipping container) – “one of the most successful switches from street food to a central London restaurant in recent times, while still keeping everything well-priced”. Let’s hope they keep up the good work with their expansion this year, with a permanent Brixton branch, plus a new White City spin-off, which opened at TV Centre in late September 2018.
“Living up to all the rave reviews… and then some!” Rik Campbell and Will Bowlby’s “fun dive, off increasingly gaudy Shaftesbury Avenue” (the Soho successor to the wildly popular Brixton prototype in a shipping container) is “a whole new ball game!” offering “a great experience, even if it’s mad and rushed”. The “design is simple but sophisticated”, with much of the seating on stools at a long counter; and the “profoundly original dishes” – “derived largely from Mumbai street food but either elevated a notch or transformed imaginatively” – is “spicy without being overpowering” and “quite exceptional”.
