The Brilliant has been running since 1975, a landmark of the Southall dining scene. It serves traditional Punjabi food, mostly to Asian families but with the occasional interloper such as me. The cooking is very consistent and the service is remarkably slick, yet the cost per person is modest, especially by the standards of central London. The dish pictured is the aloo tikki starter there.
I actually had another restaurant booked to review this week but it had to close temporarily due to Covid amongst its staff – the pandemic is still with us even if it is not in the news so much.
I would like to wish you all a very happy Christmas and New Year.
