Indian Accent

Indian food forms a significant part of my diet (mainly because I’m Indian and this is the food I grew up on and loveee). A lot of classic Indian dishes are accidentally plant based and many can be adapted to remove yoghurt or butter making them suitable for vegans. I’ve found that most fine dining Indian restaurants…

Little Kolkata

Tucked away on Shelton Street in Covent Garden, Little Kolkatta is one of the many newer Indian restaurants meeting the demand for fun, Indian dining in London. I’ve not been to Kolkata but have always been intrigued by the city and cooking style, especially after watching TV shows such as Kolkata with Sue Perkins which…

Farzi Cafe

Already a hotspot across Dubai and India, its time for the modern spice bistro to shine in London. Farzi Café specialises in Indian food with a twist, famous for its unique presentation and gastronomical dining. Located on busy Haymarket, I’m sure this restaurant will be a popular spot with both Londoners and tourists. I visited…

The JKS restaurant group behind dining wonders, including Hoppers, Bao and Trishna, continue to take over London opening restaurants each offering unique dining experiences. Brigadiers is one of the newer members of the family and it certainly lives up to the high standards JKS have set. The club-house style restaurant specialises in fancy, BBQ Indian…

Restaurant Round Up: 6 Vegan Dishes

This summer was pretty significant for me because I became vegan. It took me a few months (and a few slip ups) to make the transition from vegetarian to vegan which I did by gradually cutting out eggs and dairy from my diet. There was a loootttt of temptation along the way and it was a…

Darjeeling Express

I LOVE Carnaby. It’s my go-to food spot and never fails to provide a great selection of restaurants, including old faves and trendy new hotspots. Home to some of my favourite restaurants, such as Pizza Pilgrims, Dishoom and Le Bab, this foodie heaven is prime location for any new restaurant. Constant footfall, hungry tourists and…

Tamarind Kitchen

Tamarind of Mayfair has a new sista! Tamarind Kitchen is the latest in the wave of new Indian restaurants hitting London. Being the newest member of the reputable Tamarind Collection family, behind Tamarind of Mayfair and Zaika of Kensington, there can only be high expectations of what this restaurant will bring to the table. Tamarind of Mayfair was…

Lokhandwala

We’re seeing newbie Indian restaurants poppadom-ing up every month and the demand from Londoners for traditional Indian dishes with a contemporary twist is veryyyy high. Other recently opened Indian hotspots include Kricket, Cinnamon Bazaar and DUM London.  We can’t get enough and I’m enjoying seeing what each new restaurant brings to the table with their…

Kricket

Will Bowlby and Rik Campbell originally started Kricket in Brixton in 2015 and have expanded to a bigger space in Soho this month. After the huge success of the Brixton branch, there was talk about the opening of the Soho restaurant for months and I’m glad it’s finally here! The trendy hotspot, specialising in contemporary…

Cinnamon Bazaar

Cinnamon Bazaar by Vivek Singh is the latest addition to the Cinnamon Collection family following the successes of its sister restaurants The Cinnamon Club, Cinnamon Soho and Cinnamon Kitchen. Inspired by Bazaars dotted along the spice, silk and frankincense routes around India, the restaurant has a more relaxed feel compared to the other collection members….
