Duchess Of Delhi

Duchess Of Delhi


The recently-opened Duchess of Delhi comes from our friends at Chaat! Magazine and the British Curry Club. Set in the heart of the wonderful Cardiff Bay, The Duchess is an intimate venue (most notably characterised by their custom-made board games) with a vibrant, artistic setting which is reflective of the luxuriously radiant colours of India. The interior style is classic, with stunning furnishings and murals all over the walls to reflect the Mughal inspiration behind this the quintessential, upmarket Indian restaurant.

The extensive drinks menu and wide array of spirits on offer are something you would seldom find outside of a Mayfair hotel bar, yet are delivered here to cater for any need which may arise.

The time and care taken to put together the menu is reflected in its unique composition. Despite its moniker and the inclusion of many household favourites, the Duchess of Delhi actually adventures away from traditional mainstays of Indian cuisine, carefully and informatively walking consumers through different regions and even countries to select dishes from all over South Asia, with a particularly Indian influence on them all. Some favourites to point out are Malaysian Nasilamak (coconut rice, served with anchovy chilli sauce, fried anchovies, fried peanuts and green salad-£11.95), SingaporeSwordfishCurry(£11.50),Mayanmar–ChetThaCurry (Traditional Burmese Chicken Curry – £10.95), Nepalese Momos (steamed buns with meat fillings – £11.50) and a personal favourite, Sri Lankan Colombo Crab Curry (cooked beautifully and served shell-less with coconut, onion, ginger, garlic and spices – £13.50).

This is a great restaurant to visit, whether on lunch with colleagues and friends, escaping the town centre with your partner or indeed taking the whole family and enjoying the upstairs Nawab Lounge with board games!
