Description: The cuisine of India is as rich and diverse as her people and has its influence from all over the Ancient World. The first Moghul Emperor, Babur, a direct descendant of the Mongol conqueror Genghis Khan and the Turkish leader “Timur the Muslim” arrived from Afghanistan in 1526 and founded the dynasty on the ruins of the old Sultanate of Delhi.Under the rule of these cool Caliphs came a period where beauty and elegance became “in vogue” and flourished. The Sultans of Style nursed a passion for panache that was reflected in all aspects of life. Fair to say if you were looking for “Rogan rush” in the 16th Century, then Delhi was the place to be!To make these spices sparkle, a radically new form of cooking was introduced by the chefs of Imperial food courts. Commanded by their masters to bedazzle and enthral with their culinary tactics, the chefs created Dum Pukht; the ultra chic “Food of the Kings”. Known to the pundits as the near mythical Grand Cuisine of India.To guarantee a chilli kick, the food was encased and sealed into great earthen pots and covered with charcoal and scorched earth. Here it would simmer and ferment over the day in its own juices allowing the food to ripen and mature. Once the great earthen pots were opened at the court banquets, it is said that the Memsahibs would faint and the Sahibs would swoon at the intensity of the fragrances that were released.Our chefs have been brought in from Delhi to ensure that the dishes that we serve are of the highest quality and prepared to authentic Indian recipes. Our chefs will be using fresh herbs, spices and ingredients that are free from artificial colouring and flavouring.The generosity of our people is legendary. In Sanskrit literature we say ‘Atithi Devo Bhava’ (the guest is truly your god) meaning that we are honoured to share our mealtimes with guests. Even our poorest look forward to receiving guests and sharing their meal.With the restaurant we wanted to create a place that is relaxing and comfortable, but also wanted to inject some of the hustle and bustle of everyday life of Delhi. With the open plan ‘theatre’ kitchen, in hope that we have brought a little bit of Delhi to Nottingham.

“Absolutely brilliant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

Time and time again I visit this restaurant. It's simply superb! I have never once been let down by the service nor the food. The only slight niggle is the 10% service charge, this kind of thing stops me leaving a tip!
If you're after some amazing food and quality service then this is the place to go!

“Great Food, Great Service, Great Wine, Reasonably Prices A*”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

My partner took me to this Indian as it is his favorite in Nottingham and after a few 'less than average' meals in other restaurants I was very surprised. The restaurant itself is very modern and clean. The menu has a large range of options some of which are very unusual. I had a special which was incredible. Starters, dips, mains, rice and sides were all exceptional. The service was great and all the drinks including the wine were cold, fresh and very nice. Very reasonably priced. Will be visiting again.

“Excellent imaginative cusine, excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

I enjoyed an excellent meal at this restaurant on December 22nd 2012. The menu has an excellent choice including South Indian dishes. We had very good Lamb Chettinand and Chicken Malabar. The restaurant gave us a free dal dish which was a kind gesture. The service is friendly and helpful, the décor interesting. I would recommend this to anyone.

“yummy indian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

I had the tak tak (prawn) dish and it was excellent. We also shared a kebab style starter ... it was huge so we ended up taking a doggy bag home. I think their poppadoms (in littke triangles) are the lightest I have had. Its hard to choose between here and Memsaab. Love them both
