Find this excellent Indian restaurant in a Victorian town house just off the King's Road. Unusually, you have to ring the bell to be admitted.
Once inside, you enter a different world of Kashmiri rugs and an assortment of other wall hangings. The small dining room opens out to an airy conservatory to the rear.
The food on offer is contemporary and bears little in common with your neighbourhood take away.
Perhaps begin with a 'Medley of Samosas'; 'Spiced home-smoked Salmon' or various tikka's (some marinated in the likes of saffron and fresh herbs).
Maybe follow with 'Grilled spice-marinated Duck Escalopes'; 'Kashmiri Rogan Josh' or 'Chili Lobster with Spiced Lobster Jus, Sour Spices and Cocoa'.
If you still have room, there are westernised-Indian desserts, such as 'Crispy Marbled Chocolate and Almond Samosas with Caramelised Nuts' or 'Mango Mousse with Lemon Jelly.
A Gourmand Menu gives you a good taster of their abilities.
