Lokhandwala Introduces Indian Tapas to FitzroviaHALAL STATUS Fully Halal
From the team behind India’s biggest food festival, The Grub Fest, a new Indian tapas restaurant has now launched in London’s Fitzrovia.
Lokhandwala has launched this month on Charlotte Street, serving a variety of Indian small plates using a unique mix of ingredients and spices from around the globe – and all with a healthy twist.
A range of vegan Ayurvedic shots and smoothies are on offer as palate cleansers before the meal, incorporating ingredients that have been part of Indian health and well-being regimes for centuries. Ashwagandha Indian herbal tea; Aloo Bhukhara smoothie (Indian rehydrated plums, hemp seed milk and blue poppy seeds); Ved (triphala, ginger and kokum) and Vegan green smoothie (cashew nut milk, bananas, mint, celery and nutmeg) all make up a concise menu of refreshing beverages that are the perfect start to a meal.
From the tapas menu, guests can expect a range of traditional Indian dishes such as Gujju Vaal Daal Chaat, an authentic snack of broad bean, lentils and black pulses tossed together and served with yoghurt and tamarind chutney on the side, and Lamb chops, marinated for 24 hours with spices and then cooked in a traditional tandoor. These will sit alongside more innovative and contemporary recipes.
Larger dishes explore the regional cuisines seen across India, ranging from the Punjabi specialty of Paneer Makhanwala pie, to Chicken Chettinad originating from Southern Tamil Nadu.
NOTE: A cocktail bar is to be found at the rear of the building.
Opening Hours: Sun-Thu: 12:00 – 22:00, Fri-Sat: 12:00 – 23:00
