Masala Grill is located on Kings Road in Chelsea, It takes the place of the renowned Chutney Mary which recently relocated to St Jamesís. We were unsure what to expect, however we were pleasantly surprised on arrival that the restaurant has managed to retain its charming dťcor. The menu is described as casual Indian Street Food, and itís certainly more grounded following Chutney Mary. We adored every dish and didnít want to stop ordering from their intriguing menu.

Whilst browsing the menu we enjoyed a bowl of Poppadoms. The Poppadoms were served with a heavenly selection of Chutneys, my personal favourite being the Coriander, it had a smooth delivery of flavour and a pleasant aftertaste.

We started our evening by sharing a Mixed Grill, the Mixed Grill included Chicken Tikka, Lamb Chops and King Prawns. An superb start to the evening, the flavours were most impressive, along with the beautiful presentation, we were excited to progress through the menu.

ďThe Punjabi Rara Gosht is to dine for.Ē

For our main course I ordered a Punjabi Rara Gosht. This comprised of slow cooked Lamb pieces, itís wonderfully rich in flavour. It had a nice kick to it and every mouthful was incredible. My partner ordered the Prawn Malabari, with Ginger, Curry Leaves and Coconut. Itís a Southern Indian speciality, creamy in texture and the coconut base adds a nice texture to the Ginger and Curry Leaf flavours. We would happily order this dish again. We added sides of Yellow Dal Tadka, and Steamed Basmati Rice to complete our main course. Indian is perhaps once of my favourite cuisines, and these dishes were fine examples of everything I enjoy in an Indian dish. The colours were vibrant, the aroma was a delight, and the flavours were strong and impactful.

We finished our evening by sharing some Fresh Strawberries with Shrikhand, Shrikhand is one of the typical desserts in Gujarati, and with fresh strawberries its delicious and a fun dish to share.

Our chosen wine for the evening was a bottle of 2011, Ch‚teau Montaiguillon, Montagne-St-Emilion, France. A vibrant wine with lots of fresh flavours, worked perfectly with our chosen dishes during the evening.

We will be returning in the future to sample more dishes from their intriguing menu, our first impressions were most impressive.
