About Bandook Indian Kitchen
The restaurant offers relaxed all-day dining with an all-encompassing menu, serving familiar Indian street food classics alongside their own moreish creations from breakfast, through brunch, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, as well as an extensive drinks and cocktail menu.
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 take their cue from the Hindustani cafés where the British and Indian army used to gather to eat together, with the restaurant featuring a mix of striking emerald hues – used in the comfy banquette seating and stained-glass panels – accented with simple wooden furniture, statement pendant lights and memorabilia which reflects the era.
With a focal-point stainless steel and copper bar, guests can pop in for drinks or dine inside or outside, thanks to a covered, all-year-round terrace.
