Best Local Businesses-Amirah’s Kitchen

The team at James Pendleton’s Wandsworth Town office recently had a fantastic evening out recently at Amirah’s Kitchen, a new Indian restaurant on Old York Road.

Amirah’s Kitchen came to Old York Road on 18th June and has quickly established itself as a friendly, quality restaurant serving exceptional Indian street food inspired dishes, and the head chef’s Michelin starred history promises exciting things for Wandsworth’s foodies.  The cuisine and hospitality at Amirah’s Kitchen certainly reflects an exceptional level of quality and we welcome this exciting new venue to Wandsworth Town.

Owner Arif Hussain kindly agreed to answer a few questions for us about his new business:

What inspired you to set up Amirah’s Kitchen?

I’ve always wanted to set up my own restaurant and after the birth of my first child I made sure I achieved it. I grew up watching my father and uncles working in their restaurants and worked in some myself during my teenage years and the inspiration came from that time.

Which dish(es) would you recommend to visitors?

All the food our chefs create are delicious but I would particularly recommend the Goan Fish Curry, Pepper Scallops, Punjabi Fried Fish, Lasooni Jhinga, Haryali Chicken Tikka, Saab Gosht and Dal Makhani. Of course we would love people to come and try the menu and let me know what they would recommend to others.

What are your food inspirations?

My inspiration is simple good cooking that everyone can enjoy and is taken from my travels to the Indian sub-continent, Nepal and the Far East. Our perception of good food depends on individual taste and we have included dishes from all around the Indian sub-continent to create a collection of street food inspired meals and appetisers.

 What are your impressions of Old York Road?

I love Old York Road. It has an amazing buzz and the locals have been incredibly supportive. I’m really glad to have had the opportunity to open Amirah’s Kitchen in Wandsworth Town and hope that we become a lasting local landmark.

What are the benefits of eating out in South West London?

I’ve lived in South West London since I moved from Weybridge 4 years ago and I’ve found I don’t need to travel into central London for good food and great ambience.
