Tangawizi

About Tangawizi

Tangawizi restaurant in London's East Twickenham, close to Richmond Bridge, earned the well-heeled locals' devotion right from the off. The chef is 'trained by and strongly recommended by Vineet Bhatia' and that's saying quite a lot. The dining room is very smart, mood-enhancingly lit in saffron and blackberry with details of beautiful sari fabric inlaid in the tables. Dishes are authentic North Indian, but cutting-edge and contemporary, the way we Londoners like them: the freshest of ingredients, little oil, sparkling flavours. Try the mixed platter of starters to share to really browse the possibilities, then choose something like spicy marinated red snapper in tempura batter served with cheddar and Parmesan risotto, with one of the lovely dahls on the side. The traditionally-clad waitstaff are very attentive and the whole experience a winner.
