Shree Krishna Vada Pav, HA1 2TY

Vegetarian Indian cafe in Harrow, specialising in food from Mumbai. They also do takeaway and delivery.

It's very much cafe-style inside photo, with plain painted walls, a tiled floor, and boxes of tissues on the tables. It would seat around 28 people. Floor-to-ceiling windows at the front let in plenty of light.

Kake visited early on a Monday lunchtime in July 2013. I was the only customer when I arrived around 11:30am, aside from one other person who popped in for a takeaway cup of tea. Indian music was playing, not overly loud.

Pani puri (£3.50) photo wasn't bad; the puri were just the right size for popping into one's mouth, and the chickpeas provided as filling were nice and soft. The flavour of the pani was a bit murky, though, and overall it didn't have the zing it should have had, even after liberal application of the tamarind chutney.

Pav bhaji (£4) photo was likewise fine without being notably special. The roll was nice and soft, and generously buttered, but the flavour of the bhaji was a bit generic. The accompanying chopped red onion went some way to remedying this, but the lemon wedge provided was fairly useless, consisting almost entirely of thick peel.

Tap water arrived in a huge plastic jug accompanied by a disposable plastic cup. No service charge was imposed; you order and pay at the counter, then your food is brought to your table.

Child-friendliness: They have two highchairs (without trays).

Accessibility: A small step to get in. No other steps. The toilet (accessed from behind the counter) is a large accessible cubicle with grab bars.
