Tasting menu available

Lavendra’s tasting menu is a unique experience not often seen in Indian restaurants. 

Head Chef Inderpreet prepares a seasonal menu and plants herbs and vegetables in his garden to be used for customers choosing the tasting. 

Enjoy nine micro-courses while the Lavendra team take you through the journey of Indian cusisine explaining the origins and inspiration for each dish. 

Today spring has come with such beauty, that a flower broken with my hand – fills my hand with ambrosia

Spring is upon us

Street parades, festivals, folk music and fresh food were uppermost in my parents’ narratives as they recalled their childhood.

These stories kindled a desire to share moments of my parents’ youth with our new Spring menu.

This season we pay homage to small village dishes and cooking styles with my own creations using fresh local produce and Indian flavours – an amalgamation of two generations.

For this season’s menu we bring you dishes from my parents’ villages based on the way they were taught to cook. Dishes such as these are cooked in Springtime all over India. Married with some of our own creations using fresh local produce and Indian flavours, our Spring menu will provide a genuine nouvelle Indian experience.
