First Impressions – Tandoor Chop House

We love Indian cuisine and have been to 12 other restaurants. We still have plenty others to visit. I’ve always been a fan of Indian food, but it took a while to get Amen convinced as he doesn’t eat carbs and thought it was a carb overload cuisine. Finally, I managed to get him to…

Kricket Soho – First Impressions

Shiima and I love Indian cuisine, probably because it has quite a few elements similar to Kenyan/Arab cuisine (her) and Nigerian cuisine (me). So we are always excited about going to an Indian restaurant. What made Kricket even more exciting for me is that it serves tapas style small dishes and I love that because…

Tamarind Kitchen – First Impressions

Tamarind Kitchen is an Indian restaurant in Soho. A few weeks ago, after dinner at The Duck and Rice, we came across Tamarind Kitchen on our way to Tottenham Court Road station. The restaurant looked really interesting from the outside so we stopped to look at the menu by the door. The menu peaked my interest,…

First Impressions – Temper City

I don’t quite remember how I became aware of Temper, but I’ve known about the restaurant for a while. Temper is a BBQ and open fire pit restaurant from Neil Rankin, a chef famous for his BBQ mastery. I’d looked at Temper Soho menu a few times, and decided to go with friends, as the…

First Impressions – Jamavar

Jamavar is an upmarket Indian restaurant in Mayfair that opened within the past year, but has already built a very good reputation. Shiima and I first came across Jamavar at Taste of London 2017, when I had their utterly delicious Malabar Chicken Wings. Then a couple weeks ago, Jamavar was featured on Celebrity Masterchef. The…

First Impressions – Hoppers

If you want to see the delicious pictures from Hoppers then scroll down to the bottom of this post, but for the rest of you foodies we hope you enjoy our Hoppers London review. If someone told me I would be waiting an hour and half for a table and then another half hour to…

First impressions – Cinnamon Soho

One of the sunny days in London, Amen and I headed to Cinnamon Soho for dinner around 6pm. Cinnamon Soho is the more casual and chilled restaurant out of the three from celeb chef Vivek Singh, the others The Cinnamon Club and Cinnamon Kitchen are more exclusive and sophisticated. We’ve been to Cinnamon Kitchen in…

First impressions Darbaar

A couple weeks ago we went for dinner at Darbaar, an indian restaurant that Amen found. He had a list of a few other restaurants but after I looked at the menu, Darbaar was the winner. The restaurant is owned by award winning chef Abdul Yaseen, who also featured on Celebrity Masterchef. It is located…

Dishoom Carnaby

Dishoom is a rather fashionable Indian restaurant with several branches in expectedly fashionable spots across London – Shoreditch, Carnaby, Covent Garden, and the burgeoning Granary Square area of Kings Cross. The restaurants are in the form of classic Irani cafes, and each restaurants décor is a sight to behold. I couldn’t do them justice, but,…

First Impressions – Amaya

Amaya is a Michelin starred Indian restaurant in Knightsbridge, which Shiima found about six months ago during her thorough search for fine dining restaurants for us to visit, and maybe eventually write about. After going to Trishna and Gymkhana, both incredible Indian restaurants, we were excited to go to Amaya. But for countless reasons, we…

First Impressions – Chai Ki

If you’ve paid a fair attention to this blog, you’d be aware of my newfound affinity for Indian cuisine. I’d avoided Indian food all my life, but Shiima (through Trishna) converted me and now I’m on the lookout for top-notch Indian cuisine, in search for the perfect tandoor spiced dish. With that in mind, I…
