“A good chef fills his guest’s heart, not his stomach.” This aphorism, printed on page one of Ginti’s menu, perfectly summarises what this restaurant is all about. Ginti’s dishes are precisely and authentically flavoured. The menu carries all the usual suspects such as tandoori specialities, biryanis and korma, vindaloo and Kashmiri curries – and the quality is outstanding. Indian cuisine generally does a good job of catering to vegetarians, but at Ginti they’re given special attention: the meat-free options stretch to an incredible three pages. The Bombay potatoes are beautifully spicy and aromatic, while the homemade tikka-marinated paneer has a distinct cardamom flavour and is a great partner for the grilled bell peppers. “Bullet” naan with green chili and garlic is a fluffy, crispy sensation. Hidden away between the fried side dishes is a must-try option called papri chaat. This typical Indian street dish unites all possible textures and aromas: crispy dough pieces, soft potatoes, al dente chickpeas, creamy yoghurt and spicy tamarind sauce, all of which are offered on one platter that leave the discerning diner very happy indeed.
