18 Apr Roti Chai Dining Room
Lurking in the shadows behind Oxford Street, you’ve probably passed by a thousand times without even noticing it, and yet what a double loss! Two rooms, two atmospheres. Pass Dishoom-inspired Street Kitchen and join the timeless basement, inspired by tandoor grills.
Wait up curled up in the sofas under the soft, dim lighting while sipping on a (very) sweet Chai Berry cocktail (coconut arrak and red berries). Finally seated, enjoy the remarkable comfort and soul food: traditional Dhaba tandoori chicken – perfectly grilled, with spicy and tasty massala sauce; stunning fried eggplant steak and stuffed peppers to mop up with a classic steaming garlic naan. The ideal spot for a spicy first date…
