Review on Grand Trunk Road

The award-winning Grand Trunk Road is named after an ancient trade route, one of Asia's oldest and longest major roads stretching from Afghanistan to Bangladesh. Behind this venture is a very experienced team, restaurateur Rajesh Suri who was director of the esteemed Tamarind Collection for 17 years and chef Dayashankar Sharma, who previously led the kitchen of Zaika in Kensington. It's a sleek high-end restaurant decorated in a warm palette of copper and chocolate. Exposed brick walls, smart dark wood finishes and traditional Indian wall panels set the tone, with plush Chesterfield sofas and booth seating offering an intimate setting.

The kitchen sends out carefully crafted regional Indian dishes using traditional cooking methods, along the lines of crusted seared scallops, roasted garlic, red pepper, tomato and olive oil chutney amongst the starters. Main courses follow with chicken supreme kebab, green chilli, cream cheese and green cardamom, or from the sea Kolkata Ka Lobster Kalimirch, lobster cooked two ways with black, green and red pepper corn, mixed with capsicum in mild garlic masala.

The wine list has been carefully chosen to match the flavours of the food and there's also an impressive cocktail menu.
