‘Wait. Did I ask for Roganjosh or Josh Groban… for crying out loud Tim!’

I haven’t tried a lot of Indian cuisine (no duh Sherlock), but Cinnamon Soho seems like a good place to start.

You’ll find lots of classic Indian dishes and flavours, plus combinations with British Cuisine. Like the Roganjosh shepherd’s pie.

A curried shepard’s pie? Yes please. I normally associate curry with rice as the perfect partner in crime, but mashed potato goes extremely well. And there was plenty of it for the curry to soak into.

The thick layer of mashed potato must have been a few centimetres deep which made digging in with your spoon all the more satisfying to reveal finely ground mince, cubed tender pork, potato and sweet potato chunks, topped with peas and a side of salad with a splash of lemon juice. The sauce was more sweet than spicy which was lucky as my mouth was quite hot from the starter of slow braised pork belly with honey and chilli glaze.

Oh my. It was so tender, I only had to tap at it with my knife and fork and it fell apart. The pork wasn’t too fatty either and was complemented with a handful of large red onion slices and crunch from cubed carrots. A slow heat develops as the course goes on.

It’s a good job I had a sweet lassi natural yoghurt (£4) drink which cooled my mouth.

Finally, jumping ahead to the final course – pudding. I chose the sticky ginger, carrot and toffee pudding with banana ice cream. Served slightly warm, it was soft, spongy and moist on the inside. The ice cream had a hint of banana. Delicious as separate entities, but deadly combined, both textures and temperatures colliding, swirling in your mouth. Neither taste overpowering, but instead complementing each other.

And how much did this Indian feast cost I hear you ask? £11.95. This set lunch menu is available 12-5pm everyday too. View their delicious menu here.

Located on Kingly Street, Kingly Court, it’s an ideal location after shopping on Oxford Street or Carnaby Street.
