    Food was delicious and the menu varied. Staff was friendly and helpful. The only negative was the long wait time for the food to come out.

About the restaurant

British-Indian Brilliance

The Colonial offers a new kind of dining experience, introducing diners to the flavours of a long forgotten cuisine in India's North-West Frontier Province. Colonial's interior is ultra-chic - a far cry from your usual Indian take-away and the menu too offers a delicious departure from the ordinary. The cuisine uses a simplistic style of preparation, where chunks of meat, seafood and veg are marinated and cooked in a Clay Tandoor at a high temp. This means they remain succulent and deliciously tender. The rusticness of this fare and the focus of preserving flavour is the highlight of this cuisine. The Colonial revives the age old cuisine and cooking style to bring you an experience which is a feast for the stomach and the soul.

Best Dish: railway goat curry
