Hidden gem: Wanda reviews the Forbidden Temple in Battersea
Forbidden Temple is a stones-throw away from the hustle and bustle of Clapham and is somewhat of a hidden gem.
Diners will find an Eastern inspired menu, which all wash down very well with the speciality cocktails on offer.
Before eating I’m served a French Martini - a delicious combination of raspberry, pineapple liqueur and vodka.
There are also champagne based kir royals, mojitos and classic cosmopolitans.
The drinks are reasonably priced for London, with cocktails staring at £6.50.
If you close your eyes and relax while tucking into the food, you can almost imagine you are in an exotic country.
For main course I devour an aromatic thai red fish curry, served with bamboo shoots, lime leaves carrots and bean sprouts, as well as rice.
My guest chooses a five spice pork stir fry, which is well presented and full of flavour.
Forbidden Temple is definitely worthy of an early evening visit instead of just a late night party venue, and they get top marks for managing to combine far Eastern recipes with classic cocktails.
