Summary: One of many houses on Euston's Drummond Street serving solid Indian fare with a large helping of good vegetarian dishes.
6 Pani poori - thicker filling with while chickpeas not as splashy still great flavours
Bhel poori - similar flavour to the below but crunchier, really good. Probably better than diwana
Dahi bhalle chat - really smokey lovely chcikepa potato yoghurt and heat blend (see menu for ingredients)
Paneer tikka - pretty good, not as melt in the mouth but nicely cooked
. Lovely thiick tamarind sauce glaze.
Goan fish curry - excellent, rich tomato, perfectly cooked, cumin,
Bagare baingan - Pete big fan of it, well cooked, not too msuhy and not too firm, mixed chilli and tomato, subtle slices of green chillies and cumin seeds
Tarka daal - derivative, looked the part but more runny than I like
Chilli paneer - good not the best paneer but above average despite not looking the part, good chilli tomato enthused flavour. Not paneer dropped in but marinated
Kadi lamb- lamb tasted a bit off,vtasted like the smell of a butcher's , middle of the road balti
Peshwari naan - naans all cold, probably decent if they hadn't been, but dry as a result,
Pilao rice x2
Poppadoms above average. Chutnies good heat. Ketchup style chilli but deceptively good. Likewise rare chli kick to raita.
Busy for a Wednesday. Bold patterned prints on walls. Narrow aisle down middle of covers. Big windows. A little rustic, seen better days. Faux wooden flooring. Basket lamp shades. Mirror on wall behind us. Interesting grass and green triangles outside.
Massive room downstairs.
