Hammersmith Restaurant Press, Indian Zing, 236 King Street, Hammersmith, Ravenscourt Park, London W6 ORF
‘A local stalwart, Indian Zing continues to provide fresh and interesting Indian food that reaches well beyond the expected Subcontinental favourites. Chef-Owner Manoj Vasaikar is a creative cook with a true flair for flavour.’
THE GOOD FOOD GUIDE 2017
“Modern takes on traditional Indian food” bring “real pizzazz” to this “relaxed”, upscale “gem” “tucked away” in Hammersmith, a white-tablecloth affair with a “strong wine list” and prices that are only slightly “expensive”; “charming”, “attentive” staff are another reason fans feel it’s “worth a trip” from afar, particularly for the “fabulous lunch deal”.
“Even my Punjabi mother-in-law swooned!” – Manoj Vasaikar’s “very distinctive” modern Indian cuisine remains “worth the trip” to this very well-known, but somewhat “oddly located” little “gem”, near Ravenscourt Park.”
‘Chef-owner Manoj Vasaikar seeks inspiration from across India. His cooking balances the traditional with the more contemporary and delivers many layers of flavour – the lamb dishes and breads are particularly good. The restaurant is always busy yet service remains courteous and unhurried.’
