The Meating Room

A huge range of dishes, but stick to the Indian ones and you’ll be happy

Time Out Says

If you’re planning on heading to this quirky, unlicensed grill house in Karama (and we recommend you do), make sure you make a reservation.

The dining room is tiny and it gets very busy with groups of friends and families. As the name would suggest, it’s not ideal for vegetarians, but there are a few bites that are suitable (onion rings, corn on the cob, and vegetable “naanza” – pizza-style naan breads).

The menu is frankly all over the place, but it’s the Indian dishes that dominate – and they’re the ones we recommend most.

There’s Mexican-style corn – with a lime and chilli coating – and Atomic Prawns (which aren’t as spicy as the name
might suggest).

A classic chicken tikka is a hit, cooked perfectly in the tandoor, spicy and served with a cooling yoghurt and mint dip. Another Indian stalwart, dhal makhani, hits home, too. You can tell it’s slow-cooked and is a velvety, rich warm cuddle of a dish.

The assortment of breads we order are all excellent as well. Don’t miss mixed grill, either – it’s worth sticking to the venue’s modus operandi.

Quite why some of the more out there dishes on the menu are there remains to be seen, but stick to the grilled meat and Indian dishes and there’s loads to like at this quirky spot.
