Award Winning Indian Dining Room in Wapping Teases with Tantalising New Menu

The fresh tastes of a new season in far-off Goa and Bangladesh come to Wapping next month as the award-winning Indian dining room, Laksha Bay unveils its mouth watering new menu.

Launching in September, the delectable new menu has been a labour of love for the Laksha Bay team and head chef Anayet Hussain who spent two weeks on a culinary journey of discovery in Bangladesh, tasting, savouring and discovering new flavours before setting to work in the Wapping kitchen. With a focus on fresh, beautiful flavours which paint a picture with herbs and spices of far-off dishes, favourite plates and regional specialities, the new menu pays homage to home style cooking in a culinary love letter to authentic cuisine.

Filled with aromatics such as ginger, capsicum, fiery red chillies, earthy coriander and soothing mint as well as succulent meats and fresh fish, the brand new autumn menu is a taste sensation, all set to a beautiful backdrop in the heart of London.

Uniquely, Chef Hussain has also spent time developing healthier twists on classic dishes, so those conscious about their intake can enjoy all of the larger than life flavours without consuming larger than life calories.

Hussain said, “We have developed the new menu with the aim of transporting diners from their table in the heart of London to the heart of tropical South Asia with every forkful. Each new dish is inspired by tastes and techniques that have their roots thousands of miles away in the busy streets of Bangladesh, sun-soaked Goa and the serene Lakshadweep archipelago.

“We spent two weeks in Bangladesh eating and tasting, experiencing, savouring and learning and brought back with us so many new ideas, fresh new concepts and tips that have been passed down from generation to generation to pack into our best menu yet. To this we added our signature twist – our unique fusion of traditional and contemporary and a real thought as to how each dish could be made health conscious without losing its gastronomic heritage.”

Conveniently located on Wapping Lane, Laksha Bay embodies the relaxed lifestyle of island living. The décor is vibrant, classic and elegant, with vivid colours and luxurious dark woods, the perfect mix of comfortable and contemporary. With attentive service and a luxurious attention to detail, Laksha Bay is a hot choice for diners serious about enjoying a real taste of Asia without leaving the hustle and bustle of central London.

The restaurant was a finalist in the ‘Best in London Central and City’ competition in 2012, a Spice Times restaurant award regional finalist for London in 2011 and winner of the Asian curry awards ‘Young restaurateur of the Year’ title in 2012. It will celebrate its third anniversary on 27thSeptember.
