A Trip to St Johns Wood

As I return to reviewing after the worst of the pandemic is (hopefully) over I tried Ritu, an Indian restaurant in St Johns Wood that has two chefs with a serious pedigree. Sadly the meal did not live up to expectations, with the exception of some good tandoori lamb chops. Otherwise, there was some biryani with dried out meat, a dry and dull chaat and some soggy bhindi, though at least the halwa at the end was fine. To add insult to injury Ritu is far from cheap, with a particularly sloppy wine list and poorly trained front of house staff. I never enjoy writing poor reviews, and try to pick places to visit that are good, but sometimes these things happen.
