There are plenty of options for eating food from the Indian subcontinent in London – the Bangladeshi cafes of Brick Lane, the Pakistani tandoori joints, the traditional Indian curry houses – but few can offer such as diverse idea of the food available up and down contemporary India as Spirit Fire in Enfield. They look to the past, and can boast all the classics that one would expect to see, but also offer house specialities that take in the most modern aspects of Indian cuisine. Book a table at their restaurant on Queen Anne’s Place in Bush Hill Park to experience it for yourself.
The Indian community of London is massive, and their impact on the city is never to be underestimated. Nowhere is that influence found more strongly than in the restaurants of the capital, but often the friendly neighbourhood curry house can become stuck in the same traditional recipes and techniques. Spirit Fire on Queen Anne’s Place in Enfield are not a restaurant that could be accused of that. Their take on the classics of Indian cuisine is ever-changing, with a menu that represents the diversity and breadth of one of the great culinary countries of the world.
The Spirit Fire menu is packed with the traditional favourites – those who love their neighbourhood curry house classics will not go home disappointed here – but the true joy of dining in this part of Enfield is found in the house specials, which include dishes rarely found elsewhere in London. We’d plump for the fiery chicken moricha, cooked with chilli pickles and dried chillies, or at the other end of the scale, the duck tikka pista badami, with peanut butter, almond, coconut and pistachio in a mild sauce. Take the train to Bush Hill Park overground – and book your table ahead of time.
This is probably the best Indian restaurant in Enfield, near Bush Hill Park station, it is a friendly restaurant and the food is lovely and tasty
