Excellent food from an Indian restaurant menu with different twist

Headed by Atul Kochhar of Michelin-starred Benares, Bib Gourmand winner Indian Essence offers a polished, modern take on Indian cuisine. The spotless dining room features bold magenta lighting and a chic glowing bar.

Alongside gourmet curries and succulent dishes served straight from the tandoor oven, the Indian Essence menu includes Atul’s favourites, like lobster in coconut sauce, or Goa-style sirloin steak with coriander chips. Classic European desserts are served with a twist at Indian Essence in Petts Wood, like cardamom-infused dark chocolate fondant, or rose & raspberry-scented Calcutta cheesecake.

A range of slick, refreshing cocktail mixes are offset by a bold wine list: perfectly matched to complement the intense flavours of the dishes. Regularly changing vintage bottles are available from the bar at Indian Essence near Bromley, as well as cooling masala iced tea, or passion fruit and chutney martini.

Found in a leafy London suburb, Indian Essence restaurant is a 3-minute walk from Petts Wood Rail Station.

    Yes we had a good meal. The menu is rather static and found the choice rather uninteresting.

    It was my wife's birthday and so we were treated very well. The food was excellent (we chose the weekday menu) including a s'amuse bouche with lovely house wine especially selected by Mr Kutcher. It is a real treat to attend a restaurant where every dish of every course is deliciously vibrant. We love it here!

    Food was excellent and my favourite was the lamb chop and the salmon on the kebab platter

    Lovely food and attentive waiters , only one small thing I would say is being Indian it’s not for sharing so I think they should do that
