    Fantastic Indian cuisine in the heart of LDN. We went to the buzzing street kitchen on the ground floor. Stars of the show are Dhokla soft and warm, super spicy Hakka chilli paneer and Agni chicken wi

    Try the lamb curry - meat is succulent and tender. Chicken lollipops and Papri chaat are delicious. For the adventurous, try the Hakka Chilli Paneer - spicy!

    The railway lamb curry was absolutely delicious! It comes with two pieces of roti, but I substituted it for the rice to soak up the curry. The pistachio kulfi is also a must try.
