Pilau launches first London restaurant

Indian street-food restaurant Pilau has opened its first site in London's Fitzrovia.

The restaurant began as a pop-up project between former Quo Vadis and the Rosewood chef George Pitkeathley and Ollie Norman, the son of Russell Norman, who remains a consultant to the business.

Pitkeathley, with the help from investors, opened the permanent site on Goodge Street which Pilau Soho due to open before Christmas.

Pilau will offer dishes such as butter chicken, lamb and bone marrow paneer served with a selection of salads including Pilau coleslaw and shoestring bhaji.

Desserts include homemade cardamom custard tarts and fresh mango lassis.

Pitkeathley said: "We want hungry people to be fed with delicious food, but we also want the experience to be fun, with a healthy dollop of that ‘Friday Feeling'. Our beautiful interiors, upbeat servers and great music will welcome our customers and send them away not just full but a little happier than when they came in!"

Pilau's Feed Yourself, Feed a Child campaign promises to donate to Akshyra Patra charity for every meal sold.
