| The City

Charred, smoked and grilled is the name of the game at Brigadiers, which is cooking up all manner of kebabs, chops, tikka and feasting options for hungry City sorts at the Bloomberg Arcade, with a huge selection of beer to wash it all down. It comes from the same people behind Trishna, Hoppers and Gymkhana - so it's easily one of the best Indian restaurants in the City (with a good bar too).

"The menu lists lots of things which would encourage me back through the door again: there’s the achari beef short-rib and the full rack of tandoori lamb chops, the wood-roasted curry leaf masala turbot and the crab seekh kebabs." READ REVIEW

"Brigadiers is a whopping great, beautifully turned out, superflash temple to the religion of “curry night”, perfect for booze, sport, music, hanging out and showing off, and just happens to serve some of the best Indian food in the country." READ REVIEW

"In a city where cult indie restaurants in newly branded dining destinations are failing at a rate of knots, maybe it’s a better idea to start something like Brigadiers — with a solid menu of Indian hits, brilliantly executed by brilliant operators — than a place that will be just another notch on a food blogger’s bedpost."
