Review on Dalchini

Udit Sarkhel is best known for his trio of Indian eateries, but he has also created London's first 'Hakka' restaurant in leafy Wimbledon. 'Hakka' translates as 'guest people' and it refers to a hybrid style of cooking developed by Chinese settlers in India.

It's a fascinating hybrid typified by dishes such as chicken and sweetcorn soup spiked with chillies and vinegar, prawns Manchurian (with coriander, green chillies, garlic and onions), home-style lamb stew with white radish and light soy, and a signature dish of chicken tossed in aromatic ginger sauce.

The long menu also winds its way through green plantain fritters with piquant date sauce, steamed tilapia with fermented black beans, chilli lamb with soy and wine, Singapuri chicken curry and moi-yan aubergine (layered with minced chicken and shrimps). Goat puts in an appearance and there's a full line-up of dishes for vegetarians. Express lunches will only set you back a few pounds.
