Best Bites: Fabulous flavours at Fleet restaurant

Customers can choose from authentic and contemporary dishes at Indian restaurant The Golden Triangle

Head chef Devi Singh and Tandoori chef Sunil Kumar

The Golden Triangle showcases authentic cooking at its best with robust flavours and spicy aromas tantalising the taste buds of customers as soon as they step in.

Fleet’s fine Indian restaurant not only wows diners with its range of aromatic signature dishes, but also turns heads for its precise plate presentation, spot-on customer service and traditional vibe.

Serving customers since 2005, a new a la carte menu was launched at the Fleet Road restaurant at the end of last year.

The Golden Triangle’s fresh, North Indian-style menu, is a triumphant mix of the authentic and the contemporary.

Highlights amongst the starters include Ajwani salmon – boneless chunks of fish chargrilled in a clay oven and flavoured with carom; lamb sula – chunks of lamb marinated with yoghurt and cloves, skewered and roasted to perfection and served with mint sauce; and Hara Bhara kebab – deep-fried patties of lightly-spiced spinach, with a tender heart of goat’s cheese.

A range of tandoori items can also be enjoyed whilst mains come into a class of their own, featuring treats such as spring roast lamb laziz – a pot-roasted lamb cooked with a fresh aromatic masala of tomato and onion; and king prawn lababdar – king prawns marinated in yoghurt and ginger and broiled in a clay oven before being topped with a fenugreek-flavoured onion and tomato sauce.

Each dish at the Golden Triangle offers a fresh and distinctive flavour and the restaurant’s specialities include peshawari chicken cooked in a garlic, ginger, yoghurt and coriander sauce and Punjabi roast duck, finished with chettinad-flavoured gravy.

Affordable fine dining

An array of vegetarian sides offer ample choice, including several paneer – Indian cheese – dishes.

Chief among the range is paneer mushroom noorani – small cuts of cottage cheese and mushrooms cooked with onion, fresh tomato and garlic and finished with more than a hint of malabar gravy.

The sweet-toothed can finish off a highly satisfying meal with home-made desserts such as gajar ka halwa, a carrot pudding or the Indian classic gulab jamun.

Each course is presented on perfect white triangle dishes with starters and mains accompanied with a crisp green salad and a yoghurt dressing.

Be sure to notice the chilli icon at the side of some dishes listed on the menu as when an item is described as hot, it is no word of a lie!

As befits a fine dining, yet affordable, restaurant, the drinks list keeps abreast of quality wines and there is even a thirst-quenching bevy of cocktails and smoothies.

Keeping a more budget-conscious crowd in mind, the Golden Triangle offers several fixed price menus, notable amongst them the express lunch menu, at £7.95 per person.

The interior at Golden Triangle is airy and relaxing, mixing the environs of old and new.

Krishan Mehra, manager at Golden Triangle, said: “My staff and I are very proud of our restaurant. We have a large and very loyal following, who have eagerly awaited the launch of our new menu.

“I am pleased to say that those who have tried it have been very complimentary and have already marked their favourite dishes which they keep coming back for. The more the merrier.”
