Posh Indian+E14

Dockmaster's House

I'm always a little bit suspicious of posh Indian restaurants. It seems like an oxymoron: Posh Indian. No disrespect towards the Subcontinent, but it is generally thought of as a relatively poor part of the world. Your average local curry is generally a cheap affair. So do you really get that much more by paying a premium? In this case, the answer is yes. The Dockmaster's House is to your average curry house what a villa on the Mediterrean is to a council flat in Wandsworth. It's in a whole different league. Beautiful , expensive surroundings. Renovating a listed Georgian building, no expense has been spared. The food is very detailed, with top notch ingredients and beautifully presented on the plate. Servers know their stuff and there is a classy wine list. It is expensive, but it's also a great dining experience-which is enjoyed even more when someone else is picking up the cheque. K.Hoosan
