Review #12 Ravi Shankar, Drummond Street

Drummond Street, an unprepossessing stretch of Euston that nevertheless possesses the cream of South Indian restaurants. A place to go to keep vegan friends happy. The jewel amongst them is Ravi Shankar, although a close second is Chutney’s across the road. My preferred option is to do the all you can eat buffet at lunch time (less than a tenner with a lassi on the side) but with veggies in the group we did an after-work Friday visit. Good call.

For starter I took a benchmark testing onion bhaji – good crunchy onion and a generous side salad. Followed by a baroquely turned dhosa with chana masala (and a cobra (too sweet for my taste really)) on the side conversation flowed and everybody happily munching away, even the most carnivorous amongst us.

The room is functional, with elbow to elbow seating, and the service can be on the abrupt side but this is forgivable given the quality and price of the food.

8/10
