Review: Kricket White City- New Opening

What?

The new Kricket in White City, headed up by founders chef Will Bowlby and front of house Rik Campbell have just opened a 100 cover restaurant. They originally started Kricket in the infamous Pop Brixton in a shipping container.

 

Where?

Television Centre, Wood Crescent, Shepherd’s Bush, London W12 7RJ

Right next to the new White City House by Soho House

 

The Low Down?

The new menu advances Will’s vision for marrying Mumbai flavours with British ingredients into an exciting new gastronomic territory with
dishes set to surprise.

Known for its modern, seasonal twists on Indian dishes, Kricket’s newest project showcases chef Will Bowlby’s flair with Indian spices, learned from his years in Mumbai kitchens and his passion for quality, locally sourced ingredients. The result is a thoroughly modern Indian-inspired menu that draws on tastes and foraged ingredients from the British countryside.

Signature dishes include the Samphire pakoras, Bhel Puri and Keralan Fried Chicken, which have become cult favourites on the London
food scene.

The bar menu’s vibrancy continues apace with more of Kricket’s punchy, Indian-inspired drinks.

Our Thoughts?

 

The Pumpkin with Makhani sauce- I have no words and tend to crave it most days! It is so great to see how far these guys have come and how much they are being recognised for their hard work! They have really introduced Indian food with a twist! It is hands down one of my top 5 favourite restaurants in London right now!
