Sometimes you leave your house with only one thing on your mind: food. That means no time to wait in queues, no patience for a 20-minute history lesson about the heritage of the chanterelle mushrooms used in the pâté, and absolutely no small plates. When a satisfying, delicious meal is your top priority, head to this no nonsense spot on Peckham’s Rye Lane. Here you’ll find plates of piping hot lamb kabali pilau loaded with carrots and raisins, chicken karahi in a fresh, light tomato sauce, and banjan borani - which should all be on your table. It’s a great place to have in your back pocket for a lowkey weeknight dinner if you happen to be nearby, and it’s the perfect restaurant for a group of hungry people who forgot to make a reservation on a Thursday evening.
