A quiet restaurant isn’t something a lot of people necessarily look for. But, like a thin jumper or a half pint, sometimes it’s exactly what you want. Kutir is a good example of one. This high-end Indian restaurant is quiet and considered, but it makes for a calm atmosphere rather than an uncomfortable one. The food is tasty, upmarket versions of curry house classics, and everything is pretty good. The chicken tikka, in particular, is excellent. If you’re not sure about a quiet meal, come for the set menu (lunch and early evening) and have a go for £20.
