Restaurant review – Gunpowder London

Gunpowder is a home style Indian Kitchen, serving traditional recipes in tapas style in Spitalfields, London.

I went with my friend and we decided to try a variety of dishes. The portions were good and the prices were fair and the restaurant had a lovely vibe. Service was really good and the menu was explained to us well.

We got there early at 5:30, and it soon became full!

We went for:

Gunpowder Aloo Chat, £5.50

 Karwari Soft Shell Crab, £7.90

 Kashmiri Lamb Chops, £8.90

 Chutney Cheese Sandwich, £4.00

 Paturi Maach (fish), £7.00


 For dessert we shared the molten spice chocolate cake with masala chai custard, £5.50

  The food was really good, although we enjoyed the vegetarian dishes more than the meat ones. The soft shell crab was slightly on the salty side but otherwise had excellent flavours. My favourite dish was the chutney cheese sandwich and the dessert is a must order dish.

It was really nice to experience the menu and bookings are recommended as it gets really busy!

Gunpowder London can be found on 11 White’s Row in Spitalfields.
