In the village of High Wych, just outside of Sawbridgeworth, the Mojid family have created Chandini, a visit to which is always a memorable experience. During the last two years Jay has converted a quirky, beamed Grade II listed building into a contemporary and comfortable dining space, complete with wood-burning stove. Charming and helpful staff add a personal touch without being intrusive.

The reasonably priced menu includes a variety of traditional dishes and features signature dishes created by chef Abdul Mojid, who in 2013 received accolades from the British Curry Awards and was named Chef of the Year. His signature creations include Jolpai duck (cooked in a spicy, sour sauce infused with olives and cherry tomatoes), Smiths Special (a barbecued garlicky dish) and Bengali salmon (a creamy coconut sauce with a hint of fennel and mustard).

After much deliberation - whilst enjoying crisp, light poppadoms - my companion and I chose to start with butterfly king prawn. The ample portion would have made a meal in itself, but nonetheless we savoured every sweet, juicy morsel. This was followed by sylhetti raan (lamb shank), slow cooked in rich spices until tender then flavoured with lime leaf and yoghurt. My companion chose the Sea Bass, which was accompanied by an appetising white wine and coconut milk sauce to complement the delicate flavour of the fish. Side orders of onion and cauliflower bhajis, naan breads and pilau rice completed our main-course feast. The restaurant offers a range of desserts to follow, for those with a sweet tooth. The restaurant also offers a popular takeaway service and the option to order online, as well as free membership to its Gold Club, offering discounts to regular customers. On Sundays there is an extremely good value buffet.

The Chandini menu states that their aim is 'to take your tastebuds to the seventh heaven'. In this they truly succeed. Visit soon and enjoy a modern, sophisticated Indian meal in delightful surroundings
