THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Chor Bizarre Restaurant Review

: Chor Bizarre's special appeal remains the eccentric décor that fulfills 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 south Indian soups to tandoor dishes, with less familiar sections like tak-a-tak items and chaats or Indian street food. Topnotch ingredients are cooked with flair, and flavors sing out clearly. There is a particular emphasis on wine and food pairings, and the wines, chosen by wine writer Charles Metcalfe, are interesting, as are his dish-by-dish recommendations. The basement has been revamped as a Bollywood Bar and attracts a younger audience. Set 2-course lunch £19, 3 courses £23, vegetarian tasting menu £45, non-vegetarian £50, and wine pairing of four half glasses is £22 extra.
