Review on Tangawizi

The prospect of cutting-edge contemporary Indian cooking in the suburban backwaters of East Twickenham sounds intriguing, and this enigmatically named restaurant, Tangawizi by Richmond Bridge, certainly hit the ground running. Mind you, the fact that the chef trained with that guru of the Indian new wave, Vineet Bhatia, may have helped things along.

This is a swanky but discreet venue, done out in colourful shades of saffron and blackberry with stunning lighting, the scent of incense and swathes of sari fabric added for good measure. The kitchen shows a light, delicate and vibrant touch and its take on North Indian cuisine is never dull. Start with the mixed plate of appetisers if you fancy share some of the delights on offer; alternatively kick off with tandoori lamb chops or mushroom pakoras spiked with chilli.

Even better are the main courses, where things get really interesting: marinated red snapper is coated in tempura batter and paired with an unlikely Cheddar and Parmesan risotto, while tanghai lamb is a curry served in a coconut. Vegetables and dhals are up to the mark, and you might finish with palate-cleansing mango ice cream.
