Indian Zing

On an ordinary looking parade of shops in an unremarkable section of suburban west London, chef-proprietor Manoj Vasaikar’s (ex of Chutney Mary and Veeraswamy) Indian Zing produces some of the best modern Indian cooking in London. While the menu takes in much of the sub-continent and adds modish touches with Zing’s Shikampuri kebab (minced chicken stuffed with asparagus and cottage cheese), Vasaikar is Mumbai-born and so the emphasis often falls on south Indian flavours. The spicing, in starters such as patrani macchi (a fillet of a suitably seasonal fish marinated in green herbs and coconut and steamed in banana leaves) and main courses of Karwari fish curry, is superb. Desserts throw in a bit of fusion with a masala bread and butter pudding. The interior is surprisingly plush, with a covered terrace at the back, while service veers towards the charmingly formal.
