Chor Bizarre Restaurant Review: Chor Bizarre's special appeal remains the eccentric décor which fulfils the promise of the name, a pun on chor bazaar, the thieves' market of Delhi and other Indian townships. It’s a multitude of wondrous “antiquities,” ancient and modern. A long menu takes in regional variations, from traditional Kashmiri to tandoor dishes, with less familiar sections like tak-a-tak dishes and chaats or Indian street food. Topnotch ingredients are cooked with flair, and flavours sing out clearly. The easiest way to sample the menu is to order a thali and sit back and wait for the dishes to surprise. There is a particular emphasis on wine and food pairings here and the wines, chosen by wine writer Charles Metcalfe, are interesting as are his dish-by-dish recommendations. There’s a delightful tea venue downstairs. Set thalis £22-£24. Mon.-Sat. lunch 4 dishes for £15; Fri., Sat. pre- and post-theatre dinner 6 dishes for £17.50.
