Pure Indian Cooking
Owned by the husband and wife team of Faheem Vanoo and Shilpa Dandekar, both of whom started their careers with the famed Taj group in India, PURE Indian Cooking opened in 2015.
Since then, with Faheem managing front of house and Shilpa, who has worked with such masterchefs as the legendary Raymond Blanc OBE and Sriram Aylur of the Michelin starred Quilon, heading the kitchen, the restaurant has amassed a strong following as a refined as an exceedingly good local restaurant, with many clientele calling it a London “West End restaurant in Fulham!”
We would be delighted to see you at PURE Indian Cooking so please come and share in our warmth, fabulous food and drink and wonderful hospitality.
Very nice food beautifully presented. Lovely . Super
We’ve been here now two times and have just loved it. Different foods than normal and the flavor combinations really work well. Highly recommended!
Delicious food that tastes really interesting (not your bog standard curry), lovely service.
Fantastic food - one of the best curries I have had for a long time - family run - highly recommended - thank you for a great evening !
Fantastic food and amazing service.
Shall return for sure and highly recommended restaurant .
A lovely restaurant with great tasting food and a delicious menu. Will certainly be returning to try out the rest of the menu!
Service was excellent, as was the knowledge and the hospitality of the staff who clearly take pride in what they do and rightly so.
Excellent food. Really fresh and interesting. Service was a bit slow but but very helpful - I’d certainly come again and loved the food
Fantastic food. Best Indian food I’ve had in London.
On a rainy Saturday evening , we made our way to the quite conveniently located Pure Indian Cooking restaurant. What a delightful surprise ! We were warmly greeted and the concept of the menu ( lighter, more unusual dishes prepared by an award winning chef ) carefully explained to us.
My wife and I enjoyed a smashing street food pre starter, evoking the spirit of Mumbai and then sampled several unusual dishes, including a stand out treat in the fish ( Halibut ) curry.
Finished with a shared plate of desserts including a lovely ensemble of nuts with almond , set off by a cherry compote and ice cream.
Drank Cobra throughout and with service, we were inside £90.
We will return.
Went for a family meal. Food is definitely very good. The distinctive flavour of the various spices used comes through rather well albeit the chilli has been dumbed down to appeal to the local palette - being an Indian I would have preferred a little more heat although not too much more. The location slightly lets down the restaurant, feels more like a local Putney diner than a upscale restaurant. The service was also rather slow. Would definitely go again though for the food.
This is the best Indian restaurant I’ve ever eaten in (and I’ve done a huge amount of research!). Wow wow Wow!!
An excellent meal in a popular restaurant. Helpful staff and delicious food.
Delicious, modern, light Indian cuisine. Redolent with beautifully balanced spices, flavours and textures. Very warm and attentive service. A lovely and tasty evening.
A great menu, with a very talented owner chef in the kitchen. Very subtle Indian cooking with a lot of attention paid to the quality of the ingredients and the blend of spices. We have eaten here several times and the standard is excellent.
The do a great line in cocktails with an Eastern slant and well worth a try
We had a lovely meal to celebrate my son’s birthday. The food was excellent with a good choice of interesting dishes and excellent service. The atmosphere was quiet so conversation was easy ensuring we had a most relaxing evening
Whole family loves Pure. We go to Pure at least twice a month or do take away. The food is outstanding as it’s much lighter than other Indian places
Excellent food and service. One of our party was held up for 50 mins (Virgin Trains!) and the staff were very helpful in keeping the table. Unusual dishes on the menu too.
My family really enjoyed our dinner at Pure on Thursday evening. The food was very tasty and freshly cooked.
Looking forward to eating at Pure again, when next in Fulham in the New Year.
It was our first visit and we looking forward to a good India. Food was fresh, tidy and tastie. Contemporary enough without losing authenticity.
Venue was clean with good decor and lighting.
Service was impeccable.
try it for yourself
Excellent food and very friendly service. Will definitely be returning.
Excellent quality Indian food, nicely presented and served.
Very tasty authentic Indian food. Service is excellent.
Pure Indian Cooking continues to deliver and improve with innovative and interesting dishes. They tailor made vegan dishes especially for a family birthday celebration, so that we could all enjoy a lovely meal with interesting and tasty food to suit meat eaters, vegetarian and vegan choices. There were also 'mock-tails' which tasted and looked great and were much enjoyed. The attention to detail and time and care given to the preparation and presentation of the food here is obvious and really raises the food to another level. Quality is paramount and everything is well balanced and full of flavour. I absolutely recommend this restaurant.
Great food with really helpful and knowledgeable staff
Fabulous food, beautiful presentation, slightly slow service, charming attentive staff.
Head chef, Shilpa, is undoubtedly the finest Indian chef in London. The regular a la carte menu is superb as I've mentioned in posts so many times...But, she has devised a magnificent and creative Christmas Menu - traditional with an Indian twist - for just £45 per head. I shall be booking soon but thought I'd like to share with all. Here goes:
Amuse Bouche - Tandoori Chicken terrine
Starters - Candied citrus peeled crusted scallops with coriander and almond pesto
Wild mushrooms and chilli with coconut sauce and charcoal naan
Crispy fried chicken in tamarind and date sauce
Main Course - Chestnut and sultana stuffed tandoori chicken breast, pistachio sauce
Sliced potatoes cooked with chilli, cumin and caraway seeds
Brussel sprouts tossed in mustard seeds, curry leaves and desiccated coconut
Yellow tempered lentils
Safron Rice/ Butter Naaan
Dessert - Gulab Jamun with mulled wine sauce and traditional vanilla ice cream
Tea/ Coffe and Mini Mince Pies
Sounds divine and I can't wait to sample it!
The Food was Great! Also the wine was very good. Interior is al litlle pover. Not very cosy. The food, wine en service was Great!
We were there after my son's graduation. The atmosphere was great and the food was delicious. I will definitely come back.
An excellent and incredibly tasty variety of options. Quiet enough to be able to carry out a conversation normally but not so quiet as to feel awkward. Outstanding service. Highly recommend this gem.
The food was really excellent. Modern indian cuisine, very tasty, nicely presented. Good value for money.
The service was friendly and attentive.
I can really recommend this restaurant!
What a wonderful dinner! Our waiter gave good recommendations and we ended up sharing three appetizers, a main dish and a dessert, which was plenty of food. It's obvious that this is a family business that the family members take great pride in. Highly recommended!
Serves authentic, traditional curry. Delicious food and excellent service.
Great service and very attentive. Good quality food. A different take on an Indian restaurant. Well worth a try.
It was my third time already there and I really enjoy it every single time. Definitely recommendable!!!
Friendly staff who gave good advice on the food. Nice atmosphere and wonderful food.
Great place - delicious food, different to typical Indian restaurant fare.
Great food, outstanding service! Definitely a local gem.
Really nice place, food is fantastic and the staff are very friendly. Have recommended to lots of friends, and usually dine here once a month.
Lovely food, great service
I was recommended to try Pure out and I was not disappointed. It was far better than I expected, the food was amazing and the staff are lovely, warm and helpful. The curried mussels are out of this world! I can’t wait to try it again. Only thing I would suggest is perhaps having table cloths to make the restaurant look more appealing.
