Cardiff’s seekers of spice and exoticism when it comes to food know that, historically and in contemporary times, Butetown and Cardiff Bay are the precincts to explore. While Indian cuisine with roots in the Mughal Empire is the forte at this new and elegant restaurant on Bute Crescent, you can expect a menu packed with dishes exemplifying Nepalese, Thai, Singaporean, Malaysian, Burmese, Sri Lankan and Bangladeshi traditions, too, with a menu showcasing over 80 creations. The restaurant is split over two levels of a listed building in what’s known, due to its strong multicultural history, as the Tiger Bay area, with the upstairs Nawab Lounge ideal for private hire. Just a short walk from Cardiff Bay station and smack-bang in the middle of the city’s dockland and Century Wharf redevelopment, Duchess of Delhi is destined to become a star of the spicier side of Cardiff’s burgeoning restaurant scene.
Absolutely loved this place. Conveniently located if you are staying in the Bay. Lovely shared starter plate and a real variety of things on the menu that made it so difficult to pick. We solved this by going again the next night!
Absolutely fantastic food, service, surroundings, loved it. Nice to be able to try more authentic dishes too, very knowledgable and helpful staff. Will certainly be returning soon.
