Located on Shaftesbury Avenue in the Soho, London, Hankies cafe is more than it likes to let on. Officially dubbed a Café, Hankies offers a true sociable dining experience a stone throw from London’s busy spots. Be this a casual dining experience we think Hankies presents some great contemporary dishes in a kitsch street food style
On approach Hankies can be underestimated, its bright neon signage can be confused for a steak house or local kebab but when you enter, the high-bar, wooden tables and bare brick walls tell another story.
Dive into the eateries delicious Indian twist on street food. “serving Indian Tapas and specialise in serving Roomali Roti.A classic Indian roti which is hand spun till its thin enough to read through, cooked on a burning hot Roomali Tawa and folded into ‘Hankies’.” The Delhi styled menu is well priced and packed with authentic flavours and contemporary twists. Be aware this is social eating at its best and all dishes are prepared for sharing. We had an abundance of Truffle Roomali the houses homemade roti seasoned with truffle butter and seasoned cheddar, follow this on with a few street bites pumpkin paneer was one of our favourites to start with.
