Greenwich's Old Royal Naval College will allow visitors to get up close to world famous painted ceilings 

Evening Standard logo
Members of the public will be able to get a closer look at the multi-million- pound restoration of the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich after plans were unveiled for tours of its famous painted ceiling. From April visitors will be able to use a lift to reach a viewing platform where they can watch conservators cleaning up 3,400 square metres of painted surface and restoring it to its former glory after decades of decay. The plans for the tours were revealed as it was announced the project had received a £1 million donation from businessman and Royal Navy veteran Sir Donald Gosling. Another £2 million is still needed to meet the £8.5 million bill for the conservation of the 18th-century ceiling and the creation of a new visitor centre, gallery and cafe at the historic site where Navy officers trained for more than a century. Sir Donald said: "It is a jewel in the heart of the Royal borough and rivals the Sistine Chapel for splendour." Conservation director William Palin said the Painted Hall was "one of Britain's greatest architectural treasures. This project aims to raise it to the prominence it deserves." Tour tickets go on sale next month. All income will go to the project fund. Visit standard.co.uk/arts for the latest news and reviews from London's arts scene.

Fay Maschler reviews Jamavar: Fantasy food is spiced with formality 

Evening Standard logo
This week Bloomberg Briefs quotes a "celebrated Indian chef" saying Indian food in London is better than anything available in Mumbai and New Delhi. I am not only wondering if this Indian chef happens to be working in London but also why he picks out only two cities in that vast subcontinent. Not so long ago I ate a terrific meal at The Leela Palace Hotel in Chennai (formerly Madras) in its restaurant, Jamavar. It is the Leela group that has opened Jamavar in Mayfair on the site of short-lived Le Chabanais, where it was backing French chef Inaki Aizpitarte from the Paris restaurant Le Chateaubriand. Presumably it held on to the lease while 8 Mount Street afterwards came and went more or less unremarked in its eight-month life. Elegant décor, taking reference it says on the website from the Viceroy's House of New Delhi, cannot be too much of a visual culture shock for executive chef Rohit Ghai, who has come hotfoot from JKS restaurants where the décor of their flagship establishment Gymkhana invokes the clubs of the British Raj. Chefs must move, I suppose, managers too. I remember the likeable guy in charge at Jamavar from Gymkhana and also Trishna in the same group. My first meal is lunch. Agnes, who arrives before me (she always does), has cannily enquired whether there is a set-price lunch menu. Huzzah, there is - it wasn't proffered. Three savoury courses each for £25 means we can beat Mayfair at its own game. The set-price game menu on the same page at £60 for five courses seems misconceived: a meal built around venison, grouse (out-of-season), guinea fowl and then mallard would seem over the top even for the killer of Cecil the Lion. Sternly seductive: malai stone bass tikka (Matt Writtle) But we are almost deliriously happy with our small plates, which is where chef Ghai struts his stuff most ingeniously and impressively, and a bottle of 2014 Kung Fu Girl Riesling from Washington State made by rock star vintner Charles Smith at a not too ball-busting £36 (about 300 per cent mark-up). Poppadums and chutneys, which you would suppose are included, turn up on the bill at £3.50 extra but they are distinctive exemplars, particularly the red-pepper piqued poppadom cone and wands of dried plantain like subtle stained glass, the residual sweetness tussling with the bite of the tomato and coriander chutneys. Pan-seared achari pork refers to the meat being prepared with pickling spices resulting in a soft, almost pâté-like consistency which gets pointed up with spicy fried quail's egg, fabulous whole-clove garlic condiment and a nigella-seed studded crisp puff. "Fantasy Indian breakfast," breathes Agnes. Chilli pepper squid tossed with spring onions and stippled with Tellicherry pepper from the Malabar Coast is ethereally light. Read more Five trendy Indian restaurants loved by ex-pats We move on with glee, sharing and sharing alike, to malai stone bass served with an avocado chutney flavoured with mace and green cardamom. I have noticed that stone bass, aka Atlantic wrecker fish, has been busy nudging prissy sea bass off menus recently. Here embraced by cream - malai translates as milk fat - in the preparation, it is sternly seductive and avocado as the basis for chutney is India's emergent guacamole. Softness is a much-prized virtue in a seekh kebab as in reshmi (silken) kebab and that righteousness is found in the lamb cylinder served here alongside a chaat of sprouted grains that tip their little hats towards healthiness. We feel that we can hear the haunting notes of Heinz tomato soup in Old Delhi butter chicken but maybe that is as it should be. The bird itself is corn-fed, chargrilled and comes from Suffolk. Highlights of two dinners tried include crispy guinea fowl malligai, which I think is a kind of jasmine - but whatever it is it performs wonders with what is often a dispiriting bird, rendering the pieces witty, sexy and unputdownable; ghar ki bhindi, a home-style dish of okra insisted on by our charming waiter; long and slow-cooked Jamavar dal based on black lentils; and dum nalli biryani based on lamb, this one from Hampshire. Dishes that disappoint - such as lobster nerulli cooked with coconut milk and pearl onions that obfuscate any briny sweetness and dreary Old Monk pheasant served with a raw mango preserve - are also the more expensive, which is quite convenient, when you think about it. Items on the lunch menu make an appearance in the evening so be guided, if you like, by that. I don't agree with the "celebrated Indian chef". I still often think about a dinner I had at restaurant Adaa at the Taj-run Falaknuma Palace. Sitting on the terrace overlooking the city of Hyderabad was a factor, of course, but kid biryani matched it. What London is currently successfully exhibiting is the fun and finesse at small places such as Kricket (now in Denman Street), Gunpowder in Spitalfields, Hoppers, Talli Joe and Dum Biryani House. For hotel-style formality - and bills - though, Jamavar is definitely a strong worldwide contender. 8 Mount Street, W1 (020 7499 1800, jamavarrestaurants.com). Mon-Sat, noon-2.30pm & 5.30-10.30pm. Set-price lunch/early bird menu £20/£25/£30 for two, three or four courses. Tasting menus £55-£60. A la carte, a meal for two with wine, about £180 including 12.5 per cent service. @Fay_Maschler Visit standard.co.uk/restaurants for the latest news and reviews from London's food scene.
