About

Indian restaurants, they are a' changin' on London Wall. Quietly, quietly Jaipur has transformed into the altogether more slick and sophisticated, Mehek. But it's the contemporary Indian food that stands out most of all. And not just to us - it is in the Top 100 Best in Britian Real Curry Restaurant Guide. Mehek's small, exclusive menu is based on real Indian food - plenty of delicate spices, no artificial colourings - presented in an European style. Heard it all before? Maybe, but the head chef is Ashok Kumar, formerly at the award-winning Tamarind, who created the menus with none other than Atul Kochhar, one of Britain's top Indian chefs and one of only two currently holding a coveted Michelin star. Beat that! We highly recommend the Boro Chingri Pardanashi (medium, hot & spicy king prawns cooked Goan Style and served in a baby coconut shell) and the Raan-e-mehek (sliced roast leg of lamb marinated in Indian spices and cooked over a gentle flame in a rich onion and tomato gravy, flavoured with nutmeg). Mehek, which means "fragrance" so the owner tells us, truly is a treat for your senses.

As larger restaurants should, Mehek offers a variety of spaces, each suited to a specific moods/events. The chocolate banquette seating beneath the front window is designed for groups of 30 or so that just want to relax, drink, maybe nibble on some spicy 'n' sweet canapés to soak up the cocktails(ladies, the violet bellini is Brad Pitt in a lean glass). Then there's a middle section which suits those that want a sit-down meal close to the buzz of the large mirrored bar. The most intimate area is the antique-framedraised balcony at the back where you can disappear into your own candle-lit world. Or rule the roost! Your group - which can choose from three set menus - will be served by smart, black-clad staff. Mehek translates as a scent that excites the nose - it does, and more.
