Why we love… Bandook Indian Kitchen

While we can’t be there in person, we thought we would take a moment to consider what makes each and every one of our Milsom Place family special…

Today, we explore modern Indian street food with Bandook Indian Kitchen.

Bandook Indian Kitchen is a modern, casual dining, Indian street food restaurant.

A relaxed, all-day dining restaurant which brings a “wow” factor to its cooking, serving deliciously fresh and exciting food that fuses traditional Indian street food dishes with modern twists and original creations.

Bandook Indian Kitchen at Milsom Place

A term which is steeped in subcontinental history – Bandook translates as gun or rifle in the Hindi/Urdu language – and is a word widely adopted by British troops serving during the age of the Raj and one which continues to be used today.

The simple yet sophisticated interiors are inspired by the colonial era, taking their cue from the Hindustani cafés where the British and Indian army used to gather to eat together.

Their tantalising menu is packed with flavours to make your mouth water.

Savour their famed, homestyle Grandma’s curry (the dish the Bengal civil service and the Calvary fight over apparently!) or enjoy a selection of small plates including Beetroot Galouti, Chilli Paneer (even the Cavalry will even put down their bandook to tuck into this one…) and Bombay Prawns.

Large plates include Masala Fish and Chips, Herb Crusted Paneer Tikka and Balchao King Prawn or choose from a collection of traditional Taco Dosa and Biryanis as well as the essence of Indian street food, Chaats (snack style items).

In their own words: “At Bandook, we take some of the best of the Indian street food repertoire and give it our own interpretation with good, British ingredients, judicious spicing, tantalising combinations, zesty flavours and notable presentation.”
