Fine Dining At The Painted Heron In Chelsea

My Experience At The Painted Heron


The painted Heron is a fine dining Indian restaurant in Chelsea.
The Painted Heron - Sweet Chilli Tikka

The menu at the painted heron consists of mixed
starter plates, a resting course and main courses which are designed to be shared.

For starters at the painted heron I chose the bird plate which consists of tender wood pigeon breast. Quail and gressingham duck tikka. My husband J chose the meat platter of spring lamb tikka, lamb chop and wagyu beef kebab. It was a treat tucking in to the most premium cuts of meat and bird on the market.

The resting course at the painted heron was avocado lassi served in a shot glass. It was surprisingly delicious. Sweet and creamy with cumin seeds.

As an invited guest to the painted heron I was lucky enough to sample all of the main courses on offer at the painted heron. Nothing could be faulted. It was all so delicious.

The crispy asparagus, okra and sweet potato chilli dust was perfectly done. The chicken tikka sweet chilli was up there with the best. Whilst the rose veal was wonderfully tender with a slightly noticeable hint of rose.

Painted heron yoghurt, cucumber and pomegranate raita


Painted Heron lamb shank 'osso bucco' in super hot curry sorrel was delicious and not as hot as I had expected. However some did find it to be very hot. That's where the painted heron flavoursome raita with yoghurt, cucumber and pomegranate will help quench the fire.
Painted heron salad - watercress, mango and sweetcorn

The yellow lentils with spinach at the painted heron were faultless and the watercress, mango and sweetcorn salad was very tasty. Considering I'm not much of a salad girl. I enjoyed the additions of mango and sweetcorn to the fresh tasting watercress. It gives a perfect sweet and savory balance.


Dessert at the painted heron was deliciously unique. Carrot halwa profiterole, gulab jamun black forest and rose petal ice cream.

What Was Amazing?

All of the dishes were absolutely perfect. I would order everything all over again!

I like that the mains at the painted heron are sharing. As there's something fun about picking and choosing from multiple different dishes on the table. Just like you would do sat round the table at a family gathering.
