Award-winning veggie south Indian cuisine. Prashad is a Gordon Ramsey-rated thrill for anyone craving Gujarati vegetarian food. Since starring on Ramsey’s ‘Best Restaurant’ show, the team have made the most of the exposure. Expansion, relocation and even a Sunday Times top 40 rated cookbook followed. Prashad’s current home lives up to its accolades. Bathed in the dusky shades of the Indian subcontinent it’s the ideal place to explore the Patels’ homemade chutneys (fresh tomato and coriander chutney, mint yoghurt, mango and zingy, rich chunks of sweet tamarind), deep-fried coconut balls (pethis), coated in fluffy mash, deep-fried and served with a lime-soaked relish, and crispy house ‘chaat’. House special is dosa, bound in fresh coconut and tamarind, crafted from a delicate batter of rice and lentils. The cooking is so lively that the kid’s meal made from zero-chilli fritters, chole (chickpeas curry), buttered rotli and rice is a treat for grown-ups too. Drink fruit juice, lassis or choose from a simple wine list.
