A visit a couple of weeks ago to Namak Mandi at 25 Upper Tooting Road. Although they have carpeted areas where you can dine sitting on the floor, my dodgy knee wasn’t up to this so we sat at a regular table.
We shared two curries. Sarsoon ka saag was rich and savoury, with well-browned onions. Lamb karahi was on the bone, and had connective tissue bits as well as muscle meat; all was nicely tender while still having enough chew to be interesting.
From their grill section, chapli kebab had a good texture, moist but not greasy, and the whole cumin and coriander seeds gave extra flavour.
Afghan naan was so large it was served on its own special stand. It stayed good throughout our meal rather than going stale as it cooled — a sign of being freshly cooked rather than reheated.
The menu (photo) is very short so perhaps doesn’t bear much more exploration, but I’d happily go back at least once.
