Serving upscale Indian dishes from its sophisticated location inside The Arcadian on Hurst Street in the Chinese Quarter, James Dahl Indian is a dining destination that will change the way you look at Indian cuisine. Utilising all-natural ingredients, seasonal produce and healthy cooking techniques, James Dahl Indian offers dishes that are light and fresh, a stark contrast to the usual heavy, albeit delicious, specialities we’ve come to associate with the Indian kitchen. Begin with starters like the James Special, chicken tikka and sheek kebab cooked in a dry sauce, or the rushani pangas, Bangladesh fish fried with spices, garlic and onions. For your main course, we recommend the saag tikka special, garlic, spinach and marinated chicken all cooked up together in a medley of spices and seasonings, or the vegetarian mushroom bhaji. James Dahl Restaurant is already a huge success and a winner at the 2016 Curry Awards, so be sure to book in advance to secure a table.
Stunning food. Eaten Indian food for 32 years never had a meal so good. Would highly recommend it. Glad I booked ahead as was full
Excellent food in a tasteful atmosphere with a very well judged level of service. The best Indian restaurant I’ve been to in the last few years.
We had a great meal at the James Dahl prior to a show at the Hippodrome (Kevin Bridges), very quiet when we arrived at 6pm but filled up quickly and having tasted the food and experienced the service we now know why …… excellent restaurant.
