About A Passage to India
About the restaurant
Epitomising Liverpool’s historic relationship with the British Raj, and taking its name from the famous E M Forster novel (as well as echoing what many a Liverpudlian of yesteryear would have scrimped and saved for, glancing wistfully at the steamers loading up at the docks), A Passage To India specialises in creating nostalgic Indian cuisine at its Ropewalks restaurant. It’s been on the bustling Bold Street block since 1987, and know that this precinct has become a household name among Liverpool’s foodies, A Passage Of India is set to clip the tickets of many more spice nuts and culinary voyagers yet.
Book a berth at A Passage To India’s Ropewalks restaurant and make sure you pack light – your trunk will be much heavier upon departure. Load up on sundries like chips and appetisers like chaat and puri, or chicken reshmi and murgh kebabs. Your first class dining experience has only just started, Liverpool’s Liver Building is still within sight at the point when the main event begins. Sidle up to the captain’s table and order up a feast of tandoori, balti and biryani, traditional Indian favourites and specialties like the Anglo-Indian classic jalfrezi.
If you’re feeling indecisive – which can happen even after booking A Passage To India (too late, mate!) – you can always opt for the set meals for two or four. These feasts feature poppadoms and chutney, chicken pakora, onion bhaji, murgh kebabs, samosas, saag aloo, mushroom bhaji, chicken korma and tikka, lamb dupiaza, prawn bhuna, pilau rice and naan breads fresh from the traditional Indian tandoor oven. Don’t forget to sample one this Bold Street’s bold desserts before you dock safe and sound and walk back out into the Ropewalks.
