Review on TPH of Chelsea

When it opened in Cheyne Walk in 2002, the Painted Heron now known as TPH of Chelsea was hailed as a 'curry house for the twenty-first century.' It stands opposite the narrowboats near Battersea Bridge and eschews design clichés, dim lights and flock wallpaper in favour of blond wood floors and modern artwork. True to it's forward-looking attitude, the kitchen produces contemporary food with plant based foods taking centre stage and is a world away from traditional expectations.

There are hardly any Indian names on the menu, but plenty of fashionable ingredients and unlikely pairings. The repertoire changes daily depending on the market, but you might encounter anything from spice-grilled ostrich with rhubarb to wild Alaskan black cod in samphire marinade served with coconut curry.

Seasonal game is a feature - witness tandoori-roasted Chesterfield grouse with crispy vegetable salad or whole partridge cooked in a South Indian stew with curry leaves and coconut milk. More familiar items are often given a contemporary tweak: rose petals add fragrance to lamb tikka, goat is used for a biryani, and tandoori king prawns are served with pomegranate chutney. To finish, east meets west in the shape of - say - Indian rice pudding with chocolate mousse.
