15 Halkin Arcade, Montcomb Street, SW1   020 7823 1166 

This is our second visit in a year to what may be our favorite Indian restaurant in the Indian restaurant capital of Europe–London.  Happy to report that the ₤45 tasting menu still is entrancing.  Both the welcome and the service at lunch were warm and professional (even if the only Indians in sight were in the kitchen and seated at the tables.  

The kitchen is sort of open plan, with most of the dishes cooked on the grill or in the bread ovens.  The refrigerated drawers where all the wonderful vegetables are kept have glass doors so you can see everything.  The décor is trendy, and the wait staff really helpful in describing dishes and suggesting what sauce to eat with which dish.The variety of dishes on the tasting menu was good, plentiful and just nicely spiced.  This is not the place to go for traditional curries.
