Now Open

What they say:

Gunpowder and Madame D's in Spitalfields have been creating waves since they opened, and now the husband and wife team behind them are opening a third restaurant. Gul and Sepoy is also located near Liverpool Street, on Commercial Street, and is a two-concept restaurant. The menu is split in two, with the Gul part inspired by the King of Punjab's most famous courtesan and her love of cooking. Sepoy, meaning soldier, is inspired by southwestern Indian cooking with a heavier focus on seafood. 

What we say:

With queues outside the door for their first restaurants, husband and wife team Harneet and Devina Baweja have been taking East London by storm with their simple and flavoursome dishes. Gul and Sepoy looks set to be just as popular, as the new 50-cover spot is the first to take bookings. The restaurant uses head-to-tail cooking to create their two-part menu, with dishes that include the likes of kid goat raan through to a potted pig's head served with blood masala. As well as delicious food, the large oak bar also serves classic cocktails with an Indian twist and has a large wine list.
