Modern Indian Restaurant in Marylebone
Ooty is a gorgeous modern Indian restaurant in Marylebone named after the idyllic hill station in the state of Tamil Nadu, Udhagamandalam (Ooty). They have put their foot firmly forward with a fabulous brunch offering with flavours spanning north and south Indian dishes! The restaurant itself is light, modern yet colourful and beautiful nods to the Indian origins throughout.
The 4 course extravaganza!
The 4 course brunch is £30 & bottomless prosecco is an additional £15 and bottomless soft drinks only £5. The meal starts with a luscious thick curry leaf and ginger buttermilk. Served in short glasses, they were very indulgent and creamy and were a refreshing introduction to the Indian feast to follow.
First Course: Anglo Indian Breakfast
The first course is a warm up to the brunch.This includes:
- house granola with palm yogurt & berry compote
- jeera croissant
- raisin and chilli muffin
- plain scones with jam and cream tubes.
It’s actually a lot to start with! The granola had a richly toasted nuttiness and was a real favourite. We also tried the jeera (cumin) croissant and had a little of the mini scone.
Second Course: South Indian Breakfast
We went for a Dosa served with mustard crushed potato and soya mattar pao ( spiced soya & green peas served with Indian bread rolls). Both dishes were exquisite and beautifully presented and made for a fantastic second course.
The dosa arrived thin with colourful bowls of dips to accompany it. We loved the soya mattar pao which tasted like mince with a lovely level of spicing.
Third Course: Ooty Tiffin
Comprised of North Indian favourites, the tiffin was next. We enjoyed the unveiling at the table in their fun and colourful tiffins.
We chose the paneer and spinach tempered with garlic and chilli and the tofu and broccoli stew. The tiffin dishes are all generously served with sides of potato, edamame and sugar pea stir fry, brown onion and caraway seed pulao and a deliciously flaky malabar parotta for mopping up the curries. We thoroughly enjoyed the tofu stew which was so very light and creamy. The paneer was deliciously meaty in texture and great with the rice on the side.
Fourth Course: Dessert
Dessert is a choice between fresh fruit and assorted pastires. We opted for one of each. The pastries (chocolate and strawberry mini cakes) were incredibly light. They were beautifully decorated with an “Ooty” chocolate disc and the other a fresh strawberry creation.
Ooty have really upped the brunch game with this fabulous weekend offering. The presentation was with flair and attention to detail. The highlights for us were the fantastic dosa and the tiffin course which really hit the spot.
The dishes are spiced incredibly well without being overpowering and service was on point. There are special touches throughout the meal that lend this particular brunch perfectly to celebrating a special occasion. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Ooty for brunch. Be prepare to be well fed and enjoy the journey through sensational flavours!
