More about Dilchad, London

So what should you expect when dining at Dilchad London? Well, firstly you’ll find the interior is fresh, contemporary and welcoming with a stylish seating area that extends to the crockery used. Then, there’s the menu. Recently this Spitalfields spot has overhauled its selection and it’s certainly made things even more enticing than before. To begin your Dilchat experience, we recommend the spicy Indian king prawns served with deep-fried puree bread; chicken chaat cooked in a spicy and tangy sauce and paneer tikka that’s been marinated in spices and cooked to absolute perfection.

For the main event, as you’d expect from any Indian restaurant in the heart of London, Dilchad boasts an array of meat, seafood and vegetarian dishes that range from mild and creamy to spicy and tangy. Some of our favourite Dilchad dishes include the whole lamb shank cooked in a spicy and sharp sauce; green chilli chicken cooked with fresh mushrooms, almonds and spices and the Dilchad special of minced lamb and chicken marinated with tomatoes, eggs, herbs and spices. You’ll also find plenty of tandoor dishes, classics like butter chicken and rogan josh, biryanis and sundries. Located on Widegate Street, a short way from Spitalfields station, this is an Indian paradise at which to do yourself a favour and book a table.

Been there going for many years to this restaurant when I’m in the area, and food has always been top quality, never been disappointed. 10 of us ate on Friday and no complaints the food was excellent, as usual. 👍

Really high standard for the price. Lamb chop starter was banging, fresh naan, good range of different dishes. I am sure i will be back regularly!

I read mixed reviews before going, but was pleasantly surprised! While the atmosphere when we first arrived was quite quiet the decor was beautiful and it quickly began to fill up. The staff were a little overly attentive, but I'd rather this then have to chase them down to order! Lastly, the food was absolutely delicious! Would highly recommend the Thali. Overall, delicious & great value for money.
