Indian City, London
There is nothing quite like good quality Indian food in my opinion and we have found a bit of a gem in Central London, just off Fleet Street.
Used a regular venue for the many lawyers, barristers and their clients who circulate in the area around Fleet Street and Chancery Lane on a daily basis, we decided to try Indian City for the first time this week.
Despite the relatively small frontage it is a deceptively big restaurant with a friendly atmosphere, very comfortable lighting and well spaced out tables. There is a basement area as well but we sat upstairs which we think has a better feel to it.
We had onion bhajis to start followed by two Tawa dishes, which are cooked using a unique blend of spices and ingredients and presented on a hot sizzling dish (although ours weren’t that hot and sizzling!). One was king prawn and the other was garlic chilli chicken, both delicious with pilau rice and a plain naan bread, together with a sag-aloo side of spinach and potato (a real favourite at Fear On Food).
The white wine was served cold and an ice bucket brought to the table which always makes a difference and this attention to detail doesn’t go unmissed.
Overall the restaurant is friendly, warm and comfortable, with an excellent menu which is fairly well priced for Central London. There is a good value lunch time menu too making it attractive for business users, so a good restaurant and one we would recommend if you’re in the area and we award it Four Forks based on our experience in this review.

1 Garlic Chilli Chicken Tawa
