The intimate, stylish dining room - with wooden floors, crisp linens and leather chairs - is perfect for casual curries with friends and colleagues. Dhonia, which is an Asian translation of coriander, is popular for its award-winning traditional dishes such as the Tandoori King Prawns; Chicken Moghul - chicken breast stuffed with pomegranate, mint, cheese and onions served in orange and saffron gravy; Chicken Tikka Masala; and the Lamb Biryani baked in delicate herbs and spices. Dhonia boasts a Bedouin-style bar and a reasonably priced wine list offering up to 18 bottles for under £20.
