Talli Joe Review

Book a table at Talli Joe

Top 10 things to know about Talli Joe Indian restaurant:

1) In Hindu and Punjabi, Talli means, "a happy intoxicated state of being" and this Covent Garden restaurant certainly delivers exactly that judging by the delirious state of joyfulness exhibited by the customers.

2) Chief amongst the honour roll is their cocktail menu, divided up by the geographical regions of India, based on the ingredients used. Think turmeric mojito for east India and masala colada for west India. If you want to imbibe a beverage that you’re unlikely to find elsewhere, try the badnam milk punch. Ingredients like whisky, almond cashew nut puree, saffron syrup and milk might sound like improbable bedfellows but combine for a creamy, rich finish.

3) Happiness doesn't cost the earth with no cocktails more than £10 and most food dishes under £10.

4) The food is based on a concept of small plates and half-plates, so it helps to soak up some of the alcohol without soaking up all the fun.

5) You might also encounter a happy state of satiation with exciting dishes like lobster momos; essentially tasty dumplings with plump morsels of lobster meat accompanied by chicken stock, cucumber salad, served with chilli chutney.

6) Dishes like mutton curry on the bone traditionally feed a large family; thankfully their modern, updated version of lamb roast on the bone is more slimline so you can enjoy the tasty flavours without having to invite all your distant relatives to the meal.

7) In case you haven't already realised, Talli Joe isn't your average joe curry restaurant. Indian dishes, such as mustard green saag, are served with trendy cornmeal bread and spicy popcorn. The dish might not be a blockbuster for Indian cuisine traditionalist, but you can't fault the restaurant for a lack of invention.

8) Vegetarians are also kept happy with a decent selection of famous dishes, such as kale chaat. Their interpretation of this classic vegetarian dish includes crispy kale, potato, pomegranate and sweet yoghurt; it is a tasty creation, although unbalanced by the amount of potatoes relative to the other ingredients.

9) Even though the restaurant is packed out on most nights, service is always exemplary. You might not have royal blood but they will treat you like Indian royalty.

10) Make sure you think of Talli Joe restaurant for your next celebratory night out when you’re in need of a casual, quirky vibe combined with the on-trend street food menus that are appearing in many upmarket London restaurants these days.
