With its scattered pieces from Mumbai’s Thieves Market, Indian-market-kitchen/bazaar cuisine, homemade pickles and spice mixes, plus an accent on genuine flavour, tantalising Potli deftly captures the aromas of its culinary home. Downstairs there’s an open kitchen, and service is friendly. But it's the alluring menu – where flavours are teased into a rich and authentic Indian culinary experience – that's the real crowd-pleaser.
The paneer shashlik (Indian cottage cheese, caramelised onions and peppers) is a delectable intro, while the Kerala fish curry, with its mild yet full-flavoured accents, is a sublime choice, but the menu is assured throughout. The set lunches are available between noon and 2.30pm from Monday to Friday.
