Kyrghz Kazak restaurant, Camberwell

At the risk of damning it with faint praise, this has to be one of the most interesting restaurants in Camberwell. It is in the back of the Pasha Hotel and is worth visiting as a quiet but completely OTT oasis on the Walworth Road. The decor is, well, stunning.

The food is interesting too. We started with complimentary hummus served with rhomboids of what tasted like fried dough. Very good indeed.

My soup, (sapar, I think) consisted of thin broth with a large hunk of lamb on the bone, a potato and a carrot. Not great, should have stuck to the borscht. The other starter was marinaded herring with carrot, beetroot and sour cream. Pretty good too.

"Pasha special" is essentially a mixed grill main course with crispy noodles and sour cream. Ok, but a little overdone for my taste. The other main was a boiled dough and lamb/mutton dish with onions. Hearty and delicious.

Turkish coffee and baklava, both fine. Complete with a bottle of house red, just under fifty quid for two.

Probably not worth travelling down from North London to visit, but a great place to take visitors if you live locally. I will be going back. Don't be put off by the website - it is much better than it looks or sounds.
