Darjeeling Express


Previously in Kingly Court, Asma Khan’s Indian restaurant is now in Covent Garden. It’s a light and bright space on the corner of Garrick Street, and has a menu of small and large sharing plates for lunch, including a prawn curry that you should order based on creaminess and the fact that it’s perfectly moppable with their aloo paratha. A great option if you’re in the area and craving something that’ll keep you full until dinner, but it can get quite pricey in the evening with the dinner set menu. The 12-course thali starts at £55 per head, but it’s perfect for a date night, or a nice dinner with parents. It's also a great spot to have in your back pocket when you're in Covent Garden looking for a faultless meal.
