Indian restaurants across London may be shedding traces of Indian-ness, but Chor Bizarre flaunts it with a dining room crammed full of art and artefacts, from silver-leafed chairs, pietra dura tables, carved lattice jarokas, even a canopied bed, all for sale. This style is dictated by the name which means âthieves marketâ and is the London branch of a Delhi restaurant. The food crosses India but there is a real emphasis on Kashmiri cuisine, prepared by a Punjabi Sikh chef. Gilouti kebabs are meltingly tender lamb and good street snacks like chaat or tak-a-tak (bitter gourd, chicken liver or crab cooked on a tawa). Try the favourite Kashmiri vegetables, lotus root or haaq (spinach) and the classic goshtaba (meltingly tender lamb kofte cooked in seasoned yoghurt). Good southern chicken Chettinad. Worthwhile breads and biryani. Agreeable service, wines chosen by Charles Metcalfe.
