An inventive Indian eatery from the mind of Hardeep Somal (formerly head chef at The Bull & Claw). If you’re familiar with the fusion flavours Somal's served up around Shanghai’s street-food pop-ups, he’s expanding those ideas in Klay. Pulling ingredients from all over the country, expect a mix of playful dishes like butter chicken tacos, lamb bhaji sliders and a range of curries that – while carrying decent spice and heat – won’t leaving you gasping for water. Behind the drinks is bartender around town Geo Valdivieso with a strong list of Indian-influenced cocktails and selection of lassis (non-boozy… for now, at least).
