Following in the footsteps of the Shaftesbury Avenue and Marble Arch restaurants, Ani Arora’s venture has a third home, this time in Westbourne Terrace

mcith_hanki.pngWith its simple, fresh and aromatic north Indian creations – all served as small plates and representing great value for money – the Hankies brand has proved very popular.

The culinary ethos at Westbourne Terrace is similar to that of Hankies’ siblings, but with somewhat lighter flavours.

Based on traditional street food recipes, the size of each dish gives diners free rein to indulge with the majority priced between £5.50 and £8.00

Showcasing relaxed north Indian t are small bites such as’Fruits de Mer’ popcorn – snow crab, shrimps, sago seeds & lemon’n’ coriander dip – and Wild Mushroom Kachori.

Fresh from the grill come Skewers of Tiger Prawns with chives & garlic; Chilli Lamb Chops marinated in Kashmiri chillies & honey; Spicy Miso Salmon and Tandoori Spuds whilst other main courses include Ani’s Butter Chicken.

The menu still includes the brand’s signature – the roomali roti. A thin flatbread, this is hand spun, cooked and then folded into ‘hankies’ to accompany – or enclose – these dishes or available folded and filled with ingredients as Kale ‘n’ Haloumi, ‘Burford Brown’ Hen’s Egg and Pulled Lamb Spareribs.

For those wanting more privacy, Hankies Westbourne Terrace also features a private dining room.

Guests can elect to enjoy a pre- or post-dinner drink in Hankies’ bar. Here they can take advantage of a carefully curated cocktail collection, all priced at an £6.00 and spearheaded by the likes of Lychee Martini.
