Raising the bar for Indian cuisine in North London, Hazara provides a fine dining experience, the perfect location for celebrating a special occasion or for those times when a takeaway on the couch just won’t cut it. Located on Belsize Lane, a short walk from Belsize Park underground station, Hazara draws in even the most discerning of curry connoisseurs from all over the city with its gourmet Indian cuisine and elegant setting. At Hampstead’s Hazara, the chef’s take time-honoured recipes and give them a new, creative and refined twist, with options ranging from nariyal malai scallops (pan-seared dill and coconut milk soaked scallops served with a sundried tomato and mango relish) for starters, and mains like the dudhiya batair (quail cooked in a creamy sauce) and the tandoori duck prepared with caraway seeds, cloves and cardamon).

The food was excellent, the service was prompt and friendly and the atmosphere was pleasant, in all evening was a very good experience. Would recommend this restaurant..
Why did we not discover this place before? Amazing Indian food, but not the generic menu - lots of sensational dishes that were completely new to us. The tandoori broccoli and the grilled long aubergine were highlights. Biryani also not to be missed. Good service too, plus an unexpectedly good wine list. Before we left we were already planning our next visit.
Great restaurant with fine Indian food with a proper kick. We really enjoyed our meal there and cannot wait to go again. A real treat.
