Stock Exchange Buildings, 34 St Nicholas Street, Bristol, BS1 1TG
This Grade II listed building closed as the Bristol stock exchange over 20 years ago, and it was only after much consultation with English Heritage that the current proprietor, Bodrul Hoque, received permission to turn it into this popular restaurant. Now in its 13th year, Old India offers a contemporary twist on classic Indian cuisine and is full of character and history, boasting stunning mosaic floors, marble columns and mahogany panelling.

The menu is shorter than at many Indian restaurants - a refreshing change that doesn't mean a lack of choice. All the favourites are offered, alongside interesting modern combinations such as machi mazadaar, featuring fillet of salmon with mustard seeds, coconut, curry leaves and tamarind water. All dishes have brief yet informative descriptions, and the waiters are on hand to describe unusual vegetables or spices.

I opted for hariyali bortha - spinach and mashed potato patties with cheese and mustard seeds - which were attractively presented and complemented by a crisp salad. My companion couldn't resist the kashi chops - tender meat infused with the sweetness of pomegranate. The ever-popular chicken korma was cooked in a classic mild sauce with the exciting addition of rose petals. This is an impeccable restaurant offering flawless service and divine cuisine. Old India is a true culinary treasure
