When I received a message from one of my friends that she wanted to meet up, but not in the usual hotspots of Hoxton/Shoreditch I was really excited! (I get excited easily, don’t judge me). Anyway I was excited because it meant that I would be able to introduce her to Kailash Momo, a firm favourite of mine and always a crowd-pleaser because Tibetan restaurants are few and far between in London(actually I don’t even think there is another one in London). So we ventured into Woolwich Central and received a warm welcome from the service team. It didn’t take me long to choose the Lamb Thali, a selection of dishes that would definitely satisfy my hunger. My friend opted for a lamb curry with rice.
The food, when it arrives, comes in very healthy sized portions, I would recommend going on an empty stomach because you will be well fed. My lamb Thali came with rice, lamb curry, dal (lentil soup), dry fried potato with cauliflower, fried green vegetables, homemade chilli sauce and salad. I loved every part of this and the only dish I couldn’t finish was my lentil soup because I’d over-indulged on the rice. It genuinely felt as if someone had taken their time to cook this, it isn’t you run of your mill “curry in a hurry”, you can actually taste the authentic tibetan flavours in each dish.
The food here never disappoints and for just £7! YES £7 for Lamb Thali! It really is a great value restaurant in an under-appreciated part of London. There really is no excuse not to venture into Woolwich if only for a taste of tibet. Don’t be a postcode snob – the DLR and train connections are excellent so head down there wherever you are!
