Hara The Circle Bar & Restaurant

Links

Several words spring to mind on entering Hara. “Sleek” is one. “Cool” is another. But it might take you a moment before you notice the best bit about this gorgeous space. It’s smoke free. Which means you can enjoy a drink – an excellent drink – and not go home smelling like a Turkish market.

With a couple of Old Fashioneds under our belt – probably the best I’ve had in London – we took our table. Sadly, we were two of only four diners. Service was attentive and friendly possibly as a result, however a regular assures me that service remains at that level on busier nights. Let’s hope so. On this evidence they could rival The Ivy in terms of lad back charm, efficiency and knowledge.

Chef Bhuwan Bhatt used to cook at RV2, the short-lived mainstream Indian on Shaftesbury Avenue. Food there was conventional and decent… which suggests he’s met the devil at a crossroads and sold his soul in return for dazzling culinary ability. Tandoori Sea Bass was gorgeous, meaty stuff with a lasting tang of garlic and mint. Neelgiri Tikka, lamb marinated with red chilli and hung yoghurt, was succulent and carried just the right heat. Best of all though was the aromatic, gamey and totally original Wild Boar curry.

Extras, while good, were a little pricey, which does lift Hara out into “special occasion” territory. Still at around £80 for two, it’s a damn sight cheaper than Zaika and, on this evidence, every bit as good.
