Carlton Lounge is an all-under-one-roof space to enjoy fine North Indian cuisine, expertly-prepared cocktails and an impressive selection of shisha that uses tobaccos from around the world. Sound good? Excellent. The restaurant space here is elegant, the shisha lounge very relaxing, the banqueting hall big and the beer garden (weather permitting) an absolute delight. You’ll find Carlon Lounge with all of its splendour in London’s Kingsbury, right on Kingsbury Road and very worth a reservation in advance. You won’t be disappointed and you’ll very likely find yourself sticking around for longer than planned.
So, what will it be? Curry? A cocktail? A fruity shisha? Heck, why not all three? Anything is possible at Kingsbury’s Carlton Lounge, so get ready to indulge. As we’re assuming you’re here for the food, however, we’ll go right ahead and shed a little light on the North Indian cuisine that is so expertly-prepared and served up here. The chefs certainly know their way around the Indian kitchen and don’t allow anything to leave the kitchen that they wouldn’t eat themselves. The menu is vast, but this is fine dining, meaning quality is never compromised.
In this part of London, Kingsbury diners have equal choice between meat and vegetarian North Indian options. Once your starters are good and settled, one of our favourite vegetarian mains is the baigan bharta consisting of smoked aubergine mash, tomato and dry spices. The daal makhani with black lentils is also terrific. For non-vegetarians, the signature adraki lamb chop masala is a must-try, as is the Carlton mixed grill masala. Of course, Carlton Lounge then offers all the curry house classics so well-loved in London and indeed the rest of the UK. Head to Kingsbury Road expecting big things!
