Vineet Bhatia can be found just off the Kings Road in Chelsea, London. This restaurant is set inside an intimate townhouse. Being such an intimate location, Vineet Bhatia actually only offers enough space to seat just a small number of guests; however this only seems to add to the feeling of exclusivity, and helps to ensure that every dish is personally prepared with an unrivalled attention to detail.

The Vineet Bhatia experience is based on a 11 course tasting menu, the menu is inspired by Mumbai street food, and includes an array of the most wonderful dishes.

To start, we were served lime soup and smoked prawn chaat. This dish came with perfectly prepared masala prawns, along with a fresh, creamy soup with flavours of coconut, tomato, chili and lemongrass served in a double wall glass. The tea we chose to accompany this dish was the White Lotus tea; a refreshing blend of melon and peach.

Our next dish was the amritsari haddock. This is quite a striking dish, as the batter is made with squid ink, making it black in colour. The haddock was beautifully cooked, and came served on a bed of curried leaves and polished black stones.

Next up saw the Raan Uttapam, which consists of marinated leg of lamb served in a rice and lentil flour pancake, topped with a fresh onions, tomato and coriander and served with coconut chutney. This is visually impressive, as it comes garnished with a rather wonderful edible gold leaf. This dish saw our second tea of choice, Silver Needles - which is another delicate tea with a rich body and a beautiful aroma; it complimented the lamb remarkably well.

The fourth dish saw beet foie gras, which combines foie gras with Indian spices. The beet part of this dish creates a beautiful pink hue. This dish is served with a traditional French macaron, and is completed with pineapple chutney. What was particularly special about this dish is that it came served on one half of a cracked plate, with my partner's dish being served on the other half. This is just one example of the attention to detail that was apparent throughout our dining experience.

"Vineet Bhatia somehow manages to create memorable experiences, which are quite a rare find."

Next up was the chilli cod. A very tasty dish of pan grilled cod cooked in olive oil and glazed with a tomato, ginger and red chilli glaze. This came served with a mash of purple cabbage, potatoes, cream and butter; completed with a squid ink wafer.

For our sixth dish, we thoroughly enjoyed the duck korma. With its intriguing consistency, this dish breaks away from the norm with the addition of mushrooms. It came served with the most delicious reduced red onion chutney. This dish came paired with our third tea, the Green Nilgiri - which is sourced from the highest tea estate in the world and delivers a beautiful flavour.

We were then served the Patiala chicken, which is chicken cooked with tomatoes, spices and chestnuts, this was also served with a fried corn bread, a fantastic combination of flavours and textures.

For the eighth course, we were presented with was the glazed pork chop with a honey-soy marinade. This was served with French beans and deep fried rice noodles. This dish has a certain Chinese influence which offers a wonderful delivery.

The start of our sweet offerings was titled Chocolate Cure, which saw Gulab Jamun served on a Kunafeh nest. This dish also saw turmeric "caviar" with an intricate white chocolate feather and a cocoa-dusted almond egg - a suburb marriage of flavours.

Alongside this dish we enjoyed our final tea of choice, which was the Coco Chai. This is actually a caffeine-free chai infusion tea made from South African rooibos. There is an array of flavours packed into this tea, with notes of shredded coconut, red peppercorns, ginger, cinnamon and cardamom.

Next we were presented with the clementine kulfi a traditional Indian eggless ice cream, flavoured with clementine. This dish was simply delicious.

Finally, we finished our evening with petit fours. Although, of course, these were no ordinary petit fours; these were well presented and delighted with rose and ginger accents. In keeping with the rest of the dishes, these were divine.

The level of care and thought that goes into creating a memorable dining experience at Vineet Bhatia is very impressive. If you are after a fine dining experience you certainly won't leave this restaurant disappointed. Vineet Bhatia somehow manages to create memorable experiences, which are quite a rare find. We were very impressed, and cannot recommend Vineet Bhatia highly enough.
