Kishmish Review

Top 10 things you need to know about Kishmish restaurant:

1) Fulham may not be where you’d usually head to in search for a top-notch curry, but this West London curry house has been building up a sterling reputation since 1966, when it first opened.

2) Kishmish has since been transformed by the original owner’s grandson, who has brought in a new chef and given both the menu and the venue a makeover, turning it into more of a destination restaurant; something which may have come as a shock to the regulars, accustomed to a more discreet local.

3) They won’t, however, be disappointed by the smells that waft through from the kitchen; a combination of coastal spices inspired by Head Chef Cruz Gomez’s hometown of Goa that’s likely to make passers by cancel their dinner reservations elsewhere and walk right in.

4) Simple and spacious, the interior’s bright blue accents may not be to everyone’s taste. White tablecloths, fancy wine glasses, comfortable seating and, refreshingly, for a London restaurant, plenty of space between tables, make for an overall pleasing ambience.

5) Ask for a table in the hidden courtyard at the back of the restaurant. Flooded with natural light, it’s a conservatory space that is tastefully decorated, with hanging lights and plants. This area can also be hired for birthdays or special events – you may struggle to keep the guest list down to the 40 people it can cater for though!

6) If you’re up for the challenge of sampling meats that were previously unknown to your palate, Kishmish is the place to go: ostrich, pigeon, rabbit, buffalo and guinea fowl are all on the menu.

7) The Achari ostrich deserves to be more than just a starter. The tender pieces of meat, beautifully presented with roasted beetroot and mint sauce, have a depth of flavour that help you to discover a new layer of spices with every mouthful.

8) Moving back to more traditional meats, the coconut lamb is cooked and presented in the coconut itself, a fun touch that adds to the experience, and the taste.

9) Our very attentive and friendly waiter informed us that wine is not commonly drunk in India, although whisky is very popular.

10) Having said that, we were relieved to hear that Kishmish has adapted to Londoner’s demands, and the extensive wine menu offers a good selection of international vintages! Phew.

“I had my first curry in 1967 a year after it opened. I then went overseas for 11 years and to my delight upon my return to Fulham my curry house was still there, but now larger the sons of the owner were all grown up and to my delight again thy remembered me. Now the Grandsons are in charge and are carrying on with quality in every aspect of the modern eating house, great food, great beer and wine, great team and great service.”

“Worse ever Indian. I ordered food for takeaway took a while before someone decided to pick up the phone, after speaking to three different people, finally one person who spoke bit of English took my order, been told it will take one hour for delivery. Finally food arrived which was cold and tasteless. £5.00 for two tiny Seekh kebabs with no flavor and extremely cold. mint sauce with hardly any mint or yoghurt seems like they put bit of supermarket mint sauce in milk which was more runnier than water. Chicken Jalfrezi with tree tiny pieces of chicken and the rest of the container filled with curry paste sauce, which seems like heat up in microwave for hour. King Jumbo prawn, what a joke,hardly found any prawns in there manage to find couple of prawns, which were over cooked and did not tasted like prawns, worse prawns i have ever tried in fact the worst Indian food i have ever tried... DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY THERE”
