No nonsense, homely, proper Desi Indian food! That’s what you get when you visit @mumbai.junction and it never ever lets us down.
What dishes are shown here?
1. Butter Naan
2. Chicken Tikka
3. Mixed Grill
4. Chilli Paneer ⭐️
5. Szechwan Noodles
6. Paneer Tikka Sizzler ⭐️
I’ve starred the two dishes I personally rate as a ‘must-try’ but all the food here is just brilliant.
MJ is a sports bar/restaurant and has screens dotted around the whole place, and caters for all types of occasions. They even have an extended party room which can host parties of up to 80 people which is great.
Highly recommend checking it out if you haven’t visited before. The food is great, the service is great and importantly, it is priced very well!

Best Masala Chips I have tried anywhere. @namastelounge is a whole mood! The vibe was incredible, and the music was great too. For those that aren’t aware, Namaste also has a modern dining in restaurant, and a club/bar area so we’ll worth checking out if you haven’t already visited.
On this visit we went for:
- Pina Colada and Mango Lychee (good but flavour slightly weak, longevity was good though, burned for about 1.5 hours before it started to lose total flavour)
- Coconut Tequila Shots (insane)
- Lychee Martini (average)
- Masala Chips (best I’ve ever had, ridiculous sauciness and we asked to make it extra spicy which they did to perfection 🌶🤤
Location: Namaste Lounge
Address: 66 Joel St, Northwood, HA6 1LL

Further to my review of the wonderful Michelin star accredited @tamarindofmayfair, I wanted to share some video footage I captured during our visit 🎥
If you enjoy what you see, I would encourage you to read my detailed review of Tamarind (two posts before this) to see just much we enjoyed the entire experience, and to see what the must try dishes are!

This week we visited the newly opened @chinchinpinner (part of the same group that run and own the magnificent @coffee2cocktailsonthehill), this time bringing you a unique Pan Asian Dining experience.
Unsurprisingly, like our visit to @coffee2cocktailsonthehill, we absolutely loved it. There were some spectacular flavours in a lot of the dishes we ordered and the service from Smit was absolutely fantastic.
We tried a wide range of dishes between the 8 of us so I won’t go into the detail of it all but I will highlight some of our favourites👇🏽
⭐️ Pizza Sushi - incredible! (MUST TRY)
⭐️ Spicy Wok-Fried Squid - wow!
⭐️ Sushi Sharing Platter - unique!
⭐️ Kung Po Chicken Curry - amazing!
What else did we love?
• That the food menu really caters for vegetarians as much as it does for meat-eaters which is rare but great!
• Chinchin also boasts a mind-blowing cocktail menu, you have to try their drinks! Surprisingly our favourite drink was their Mocktail; ⭐️ Lychee Fantasy ⭐️ - EXCEPTIONAL!
✍️ OVERALL RATINGS:
➡️ Food: 9/10
➡️ Service: 10/10
➡️ Ambiance: 9/10
➡️ Value: 9/10
What was really cool about Chin Chin is that they have divided the restaurant into 5 different areas to provide customers with different experiences which I breakdown below:
* The Quartz: booth seating for families and groups of up to 6
* The Blossom: an unusual pink themed bar, based around a blossom tree that’ll give you a feeling of sitting in a well-lit central London bar with fancy a fancy mixologist.
* The Jasmin: A fine dining fee for larger groups with views of our life size Buddha with Jasmine incense being burnt around area for that Tranquil feel.
* The Red Ruby: the room with the most magic, the experience of being seated next to the semi open kitchen.
* The Jade: the enchanted space you will have your eyes on for that special date night or engagement drinks. Decked with an igloo for upto 12 for a real private dining experience.
Check it out guys, mark my words, you will love this place! 👍🏽

Firstly, I want to start by giving an enormous thank you to @chef.karunesh and his team for the incredible hospitality and culinary experience to celebrate my Fiancee’s birthday. This was a true Michelin ⭐️ experience, and one we won’t forget!
It is not often that I am at lost for words, but if you saw my face (😮) after my first bite of every dish you would realise that this place was the real deal. The flavour profile of each dish was mind-blowing, so much depth and complexity. I have not tasted food as good as this anywhere, ever.
The service was no different. Nigel and Yaseen who saw to us were incredibly attentive. Nigel took us on a tour of the restaurant to show us the kitchen and how the grills were made in the tandoor, introduced us to the Exec Chef, and showed us upstairs which was more of a chilled bar vibe, but also housed a private dining room - occupied at the time by Secretary of State, Sajid Javid, and his team.

OMG… firstly a massive thank you to the wonderful @sweetrasoi for these treats! After seeing these guys at the @asianweddingshow last weekend, and trying these mouthwatering and unique Indian sweets, we just had to buy a few boxes for our families to try!
They come in 4 different flavours/types:
1). Ludoo Bonbon
2). Jalebi Bonbon
3). Barfi Bonbon
4). Chocolate Bonbon
Our two favourites were definitely the ladoo and jalebi ones incase you hadn’t already noticed 😂😍
If you are looking for something completely unique then look no further than these hand-crafted delights. Drop @sweetrasoi a follow and message them if you’re interested! :-)

I am not re-doing the caption after it did not save… wow Instagram annoys me sometime but it’s fair to say the food here was very good and I would definitely recommend a visit to @hopperslondon if South Indian/Sri Lankan food is your thing.

After doing a veg shop at VB in Kingsbury, we made an impromptu visit to Mumbai Local in Harrow this weekend - my first time eating there, and I have to say I really enjoyed it!
There were some dishes that we definitely preferred far more than the others, and the Bombay Sandwich was by far the star of the show for all of us - probably one of the best Bombay Sandwiches I’ve had! (outside of home obviously, if I don’t add this caveat I’m definitely sleeping on the sofa).
What did we eat?
1. Bombay Sandwich - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
2. Chole Bhatureh - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
3. Szechuan Noodles - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
4. Chilli Paneer - ⭐️⭐️
5. Pav Bhaji - ⭐️⭐️⭐️
- Food: 8/10
- Service: 9/10
- Ambiance: 7/10
- Value: 8/10
I would say the prices here are more expensive than your typical Indian street food joint but I do feel that it’s worth it. We had 2x Bombay sandwich, and 1 of the all the other dishes and in total the bill came to £50 for 4 of us. Worth adding we only had tap water so no extra cost for drink.
Overall, I would definitely visit again, even if it is to just have their wonderful Bombay Sandwich and, it goes without saying, I would highly recommend a visit if you haven’t already been!

New spot we found in Elstree/Borehamwood! Very much out of the way and on the same premises as the Manor in Elstree, a 16th Century Tudor Mansion!
I’ll get straight to the review with this one:
➡️ Shisha: 8/10 - good flavour, strong depth to the smoke to start with but did get harsh quicker than usual and require numerous coal changes.
➡️ Food: 8/10 - Tried two items on their menu so far, Shisha Taouk on salad and Chilli Paneer. Ordering the Chilli Paneer from a Shisha bar, in hindsight, was a mistake - not their forte so haven’t taken that too much into consideration here with the rating. The Shish Taouk however was brilliant, great taste but if served a little warmer would have got a 10/10 from me.
➡️ Service: 7/10 - true to my world, I’ll forever be honest. The guys running @amirahlounge are brilliant and super friendly but the service could definitely do with being a bit faster.
➡️ Ambiance: 8/10 - Super ambiance, and great LED lighting. Very spacious too and perfect for larger groups as you can see from the video.
If you haven’t been, certainly go and check it out. Ample parking on site too which is great.

I don’t profess to be an expert in Fine Dining or dining at restaurants with a Michelin star but I know good food when I eat and see it, and this was good but it didn’t taste very ‘Michelin’ and for the most part, it wasn’t presented in a very ‘Michelin’ way.
Let me breakdown the food we had:
➡️ Raj Kachori - 10/10
➡️ Chandni Paneer Tikka - 5/10
➡️ Chicken Makhani - 7/10
➡️ Chicken Biryani - 7/10
Now on the face off it, these may not seem like bad ratings and you may wonder why I’m speaking with such negative tone, but with the exception of the Raj Kachori and the service which were both exceptional, we felt underwhelmed during our visit to Veeraswamy, UK’s oldest Indian restaurant, and home to a Michelin star. The food on the whole was good at best, and didn’t really have a wow factor about it. It seemed they had increased the portion sizes for both mains dishes to justify the extortionate price for both items (£30 each), and truthfully speaking, we expected more finesse.
I have tasted better food at somewhere like @masalazone for a fraction of the price, and I know I shouldn’t necessarily make comparisons but on this occasion I must. I expected the dishes here to be have been far more elevated.
Hopefully our next visit to a Michelin star accredited restaurant will be a greater success! And I am certainly open to recommendations!👇🏽

If you’ve not eaten at @germandonerkebabuk you have to check it out guys. Family and friends have been telling me how good the donor meat is here for months and I finally gave in and visited, and have to say, really enjoyed some of the items on the menu!
Across 2 visits I tried the following dishes, and for me the stand-out was the Original Donor Kebab. The meat was extremely tender and tasted clean, and the bread used in this complimented the chicken donor and salad so well. Worth saying that there is two options, Chicken and Beef Donor 👍🏽
The Doner Gym Box was also nice, and I asked for melting cheese and jalapenos as an extra on top, but was slightly disappointed as had expected the cheese to be warmer and have a bit more flavour than it did.
• The Original Donor Kebab - 9/10
• Doner Gym Box - 7/10
• Doner Spring Rolls - 6/10
It’s certainly worth visiting if you’ve not visited previously like I hadn’t! I’ll definitely be going back that much is for sure. I’d love to hear some alternative suggestions from you all on where you suggest visiting for good Donor Meat!
