MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

There’s no denying this large, modern Indian restaurant makes a statement – and not just in its bold decorative style. Aston-born chef-owner Aktar Islam, who grew up working in his father’s restaurant, has created something quite unique and his pride in having his name above the door is palpable. The ‘Progressive Indian cooking’ involves the kitchen grinding its own spices and using techniques like pickling and fermenting to produce visually arresting dishes with distinct, defined flavours. Some dishes are the result of research from The Ni'matnama, a 15C collection of recipes, while others are his own family’s favourites passed down by his mother. Many Indian regions are represented, along with occasional Persian and Arabian influences. The tasting menu is the best way to experience the kitchen’s full repertoire.
