Confidential readers are likely to be familiar with Mughli; the contemporary, social media embracing, second generation Curry Mile restaurant that paved the way for the likes of Indian Tiffin Room, Amma’s Canteen and Dishoom. Obviously this sort of thing is standard now, but Mughli was one of the first Indian restaurants to steam off the flock wallpaper and refresh their menu by adding authentic Indian street food dishes to a menu of British curry house classics. Best sellers include chicken tikka masala, balti and lamb handi as well as contemporary comfort and brunch food such as the spiced lamb ‘bun’, gunpowder fries and masala fish and chips. Roadside canteen dishes (‘dhaba’) are another strength, and the fragrant ‘dum biryani’ is a must. Film posters and wooden blinds set the scene for spiced cocktails and well chosen wines – and the price tag seals the deal.
