Shaun Kenworthy talks about a fine-dine Indian restaurant in London in his column ‘Chocolate, Chillies & other Culinary vulgarities’

Me and my favourite travel companion Pinky (at least until I have to do her packing at the end of each trip) were in London early this year and wanted to pretty much camp out in one location as we had just had a couple of hectic family-filled weeks over the Christmas holidays for the first time in 17 years, just imagine! Anyway, we reached King’s Cross Station around 11.30am. It was cold and wet so we bundled ourselves into a black cab and for a little less than 10 pounds, landed up at our little boutique hotel which I found online — Z Soho, slap bang on the corner of Moor Street and Charing Cross Road.
