Related tags: Indian cuisine

The team behind India’s Grub Fest food festival have opened their first restaurant and bar in London.

Lokhandwala is the latest addition to the new wave of Indian dining in the capital, serving a selection of lighter small plates priced from £4-£14.

Dishes are based on regional Indian cuisine, and include potato skin tacos filled with sea bass, radishes and hot spices; yellow fin tuna marinated with mango, pepper and chilli served on poppadums; and Punjabi speciality paneer makhanwala pie.

For dessert diners can order crispy naan stuffed with chilli, nuts and salted chocolate served with grilled marshallows.

The restaurant occupies the former site of Japanese restaurant Tsunami in Fitzrovia, and features a ‘Hot House’ cocktail bar and upstairs speakeasy with outdoor seating.

Cocktails are made with ingredients including Ketel One Vodka infused with jasmine tea, sage and white tea syrup; and Don Julio Tequila infused ginger.

Grub Fest claims to be India's biggest food festival, and typically plays host to over 70 restaurants over three days in New Dehli.
