Belsize Park has recently bagged itself a new eatery, a self-proclaimed “upmarket Indian”. Luckily it turns out there is a lot more to Hazara than well-to-do status.

The restaurant lighting is a little on the bright side, but it’s airy and comfortable, with plenty of space between diners. The chef has worked for the renowned Taj Group, who are behind The Quilon Bombay Brasserie, and the modern flourishes that characterise the food at both these restaurants are present here too.

Three lamb chops (atish e pasliyan) marinated in star anise and pomegranate are tender and flavoursome, while the cottage cheese (dudhiya hasrat) is a little like halloumi, stuffed with a paste made from dates and figs, it’s a great combination of salty cheese and sweet filling that leaves us wanting more.

The duck tandoori is thinly sliced and rosy in the middle, served in a thick, fiery sauce, but it’s the monkfish that steals the show - meaty chunks of fish have been cooked perfectly in a light batter, with hints of cloves and spice, in short, it’s fantastic. Even a simple raita is impressive, made more interesting with the addition of blueberries, it’s refreshing and zingy.

Desserts are a smooth, fragrant rose water ice cream and a baked, spongy gulab jamun, drizzled with gloopy syrup and served with vanilla ice cream to mellow its sweetness.

The cuisine is sophisticated but the prices are modest, as a meal for two with wine is around £85. Hazara should, in a short space of time, become a neighbourhood favourite.

Came up to London and was looking for somewhere to eat. Saw the review on here so decided to give it a try. I eat Indian food all the time and have to say that this was possibly the best I have ever had. The Jalfrizi was stunning as was everything else. Not cheap but worth the extra. Excellent.
