He offers a somewhat unusual menu based on Indian dishes, but having French and Mediterranean influences.
Starters might include 'Wild Mushroom Risotto'; 'Goan Crab Cakes on an Egg, Chickpea and Peanut Salad' and 'Salmon and Dill Terrine'.
While mains, perhaps 'Gujarati-Style Curd Cheese Curry with a Red Lentil Masala Pakora'; 'Tandoori Monkfish with a Chickpea and Coriander Sauce' or 'Lamb infused with Coconut Milk, Dhal and Basmati Rice'.
