YATRI brings North Indian cuisine to London

Take your taste buds on a journey of North Indian delights at YATRI.

I and some other community members of Love Pop Ups London on a courtesy basis we enjoyed the delights of North Indian food in which we had a feast full of spice and flavour.

YATRI

YATRI which translates into Traveller, is situated close to Euston and Kings Cross. Restaurant owner Prashant Patel and Chef Hemant’s aim is to provide unique regional food from the North and Northwest regions of India.

The Chef Hemant within YATRI has the passion and experience transporting diners to India through the smells and taste of their food. They serve a wide range of North Indian cuisine all at a reasonable price and providing diners taste buds unique flavours.

North Indian delights

Stepping within YATRI I felt welcomed by from the start by Prashant and the staff on the night. Firstly I came across the bar area which is bright and full of spirits.

The rest of the restaurant is very basic though with it’s brown furnishing and quirky art / photos but is inviting and very well spaced with tables and chairs not being on top of one another giving a lovely relaxed feel.

I was also surprised to see upon entering how packed it was for a Tuesday night with very happy diners eating dish after dish leaving them say mmmm each time.

and gazing over the menu I decided to opt for a Strawberry Mocktail which was sweet and delicious.

I learned that North Indian curries are mostly thick, moderately spicy and creamy which is good as I don’t like hot curries. I also learned that in North India dried fruits and nuts are fairly commonly used in their everyday foods and that dairy products like milk, cream, cottage cheese, ghee (clarified butter) and yogurt play an important role in cooking of both savoury and sweet dishes. This is all thanks to the fact that such a rich variety of fruit and vegetable are available at all times all of the year.

We decided in the end to get an array of dishes from their smaller plates range to start with. So we chose Bhel Puri Chat, Paneer Kali Mirchi, Samosa Chaat, Yatri’s Chicken Tikka, Nilgiri Sheekh Kabab, Macchi Tikka and two portions of the Tandoori Prawns.

Every dish we loved, they were fresh and provided flavour upon flavour.

For me personally I loved the Macchi Tika (fish dish) which was a delicate white and flaky fish marinade and charred in smokey tandoor flavours. Plus I loved the prawns as they were big, juicy and had a hint of smokiness to them.

For our mains we opted for our own choice.

I ordered the Paneer Butter Masala with the cheese being creamy, tangy and with a hint of sweetness. Delicious.

To end the night we an ice cream lolly which was very creamy with a hint of cardamom.

Verdict

The whole night was great we left happy and our bellies full from all the amazing North Indian cuisine cooked by the Chefs.

If you love Indian but not had much from the North regions of India then I highly recommend taking yourself down to Euston and visiting this gem of a restaurant.

Take your taste buds on an adventure.
