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).

What an amazing place! Having taken an interest in the origin of the recipes (you need to try them to understand what I mean) we were treated to a culinary journey and introductions to all of the chief protagonists (the head chef, owner, manager and kitchen staff). Their stories are amazing and their passion truly shines through in the plates that they serve. You really need to try this excellent restaurant. You're missing a trick if you don't.
Hazara was real surprise, in a good way. It's not the usual fare, the food is excellent and the service is friendly and discreetly attentive. Recommended.
Wonderful authentic food and lovely staff A real Indian dining experience Great night in a lovely restaurant very much recommend it (Especially the saag palak)
