Winning the title of Best New Restaurant at the 2014 National Curry Awards, Wimbledon’s Khanage can be found along The Broadway, right across the road from the Wimbledon Theatre and a stone’s throw from Wimbledon’s major public transport connections. Khanage’s prime location is ideal for pre- and post-theatre dining, and once inside you’ll be treated to an exquisite culinary experience in a restaurant whose high standards apply equally to the service, the elegance of the dining rooms, and – not least – the refinement of the Indian and Pakistani cuisines on offer.
While Khanage serves traditional Lahori, Pakistani, and Indian cuisines, the restaurant is modern in design, incorporating many elements that remind diners that they are in an Indian restaurant, if not along Lahore’s Gowalmandi food street itself. Adorned with classic Indian jewellery, decorative elephants and artworks as tasteful as the chef’s special dishes, Khanage’s premises down The Broadway in London’s Wimbledon house some of London’s finest Indian and Pakistani food. With an incredible selection, Khanage’s authentic Lahori and Indian tandoori dishes include house specialities such as whole tandoori trout the signature tandoori mixed grill, consisting of an array of meats brought sizzling to your table.
Indeed, Khanage’s comprehensive menu showcases many unusual dishes. Pasande is one such dish, in which lamb fillets are slow-cooked in an onion sauce, conferring a melt-in-the-mouth tenderness to the meat. Another, lamb nihari, consists of lamb shank on the bone served in a metal dish, while shahi paneer labadar is a special dish of cubed Indian cheese cooked in a creamy onion sauce. Khanage has a full bar serving delicious cocktails or, if you prefer, ice-cold pints of Indian Cobra beer or a fine wine from their substantial wine list. The perfect accompaniment to a superlative Indian and Pakistani meal.
Lovely food, I would recommend the chicken tikka masala or chicken korma. There's a very nice atmosphere. Friendly, helpful staff, would definitely recommend a visit.
Our first time in Wimbledon for dinner on a Saturday night. We live in Teddington and we were getting bored with same ole same ole. We weren’t disappointed. Welcoming staff, good service and exceptional food, well prepared and served.
great meal and good service, left you to eat, and did not keep pestering, food was hot, and reasonably priced superb we will book again,
This was our first visit to Khanage. The reviews were spot on. Great food and very hospitable staff, in comfortable and relaxed surroundings. We'll definitely be back!
Since Khanage in Wimbledon won in the National Curry Awards, I had been keen to visit. We went on a Saturday night and in Wimbledon Broadway, that’s likely to be busy. It was; but we’d booked so all was well. It was crowded but not too noisy and the modern style of décor was pleasing. Overall, service was efficient and friendly, even though it was slowed by sheer numbers of clientele. The menu is wide-ranging and tempting and the portions generous. I enjoyed my chicken kebab starter and lamb pasanda main dish, but my one small criticism was that I felt that the lamb meat flavour was over-whelmed by the sauce. A very pleasant evening out and we will certainly go again but on a quieter night, and we will try different dishes.
Had a great evening at this Indian restaurant. Food was freshly prepared and well presented. All five of us had different main courses and all were really good. Staff were friendly and efficient. I would definitely recommend the Khanage and will be returning.
The food was superb - one of the best Indians I've had. Not greasy at all and every dish delicately and distinctly flavoured. No heartburn despite probably eating too much! Only slight criticism was the temperature of the dining area - a bit too chilly for a cold December evening. Also, the house white wine could have been better and also a bit more chilled.
There was a special lunch deal we were not encouraged to eat for £7. Instead we were advised to eat various dishes on the menu with rice and naan bread at a cost of £12 per person. The room was cold because the heating wasn't working. The meals we ordered were mostly tasty and worthwhile although some weren't the greatest. Try brick lane for better curries.
Quiet and pleasant surroundings. Some of the food was very good (maash ki daal particularly) while the sag paneer was below average. The biggest disappointment was that they served a spicy tomato sauce with the poppadoms rather than the more delicious condiments you normally get. We had to ask for lime pickle and it tasted like it was from a bottle. We had a bottle of the sauvignon blanc/viognier which was good value and tasty. Overall an average experience.
Great food, but staff were overstretched and if seated near the back the door to the toilets let in a huge draft from an exterior door that was wide open and they refused to close. Still that is a minor point, great food, good price. So-so service.
