Flavours of In­dia

Where London - - Dining -

Sit­u­ated in Covent Gar­den, near the Royal Opera House, is the re­cently ren­o­vated branch of Masala Zone (p. 62). Dozens of Ra­jas­tani pup­pets hang from the ceil­ing, giv­ing a nod to its the­atri­cal lo­ca­tion. The cre­ators be­hind the restau­rant – Camel­lia Pan­jabi, Namita Pan­jabi and Ran­jit Mathrani – are cred­ited with bring­ing In­dian food to the masses. In the restau­rant you can try street food, from pako­ras to samosas, and re­gional cur­ries, in­spired by places from Kerala to Hyderabad. If you aren’t sure what to or­der, ask for the thali – the plat­ter has small por­tions of dif­fer­ent cur­ries and is a good re­flec­tion of what is eaten in In­dian homes.
