L'avis de Gault&Millau

Under Executive Chef Adam D’Sylva, Head Chef Hendri Budiman takes the lead in the kitchen, delivering fresh and vibrant Indian food with a modern twist. With its whimsical white ceiling installation resembling fluffy clouds, and busy open kitchen, Tonka is an impressive sight. The dining space is elegantly decorated in shades of grey and cream, punctuated with vivid green plant arrangements. The menu is structured for sharing, with a variety of smaller options to start. Whet your appetite with the pani puri: crispy parcels filled with spiced potatoes and zingy tamarind chutney that explode with flavour. From the larger dishes, try the fragrant lamb curry – rich, hearty and infused with cardamom. Vegetarians will enjoy the palak paneer gnudi – compact rolls of pan-fried paneer served on a spinach sauce infused with lemon pickle – a subtle yet addictive dish. With two tandoor ovens operated by trained experts, you can’t go wrong with either the charred, tender, corn-fed chicken or the spicy Goan pork tikka. PSST! Looking for a smart business lunch option?
