Lahore One Restaurant
I have been to Lahore One Restaurant many times when I lived in London and whenever I visited London. Lahore One serves the best Pindi Chloe Channa and Methi Chicken in town without a shadow of a doubt. The dishes prepared by them have been unchanged ever since they started operating in London 37 years ago.
Lahore One is always the place I would surely go for lunch at least once when I am in London. The restaurant itself is not very big and not very fancy. All it offers is genuine good food. Not all dishes served are groundbreaking either. Sometimes the service may also be average. But all you have to consider is that the food made and served here is made with love and some dishes are really worth more than what they ask for. Pindi Chole channa can really give Michelin-star Indian hotels there a run for their money. The best part is that the food prepared in Lahore One is not made with tonnes of spices it’s generous and made with a delicate combination of selected rich herbs and spices.
Lahore One Restaurant Menu
The menu of Lahore One restaurant is pretty generous and focuses on Charcoal Tandoor dishes. They have various other good dishes as well like seek kebabs, lamb tikka, karahi chicken, karahi gosht to name some of the mouth-watering dishes they make.

What makes Pindi Chole Channa so tasty?
The pindi Chole or Channa are made every day at Lahore one restaurant. Pindi Chole or Channa are made of Chickpeas cooked with Indian herbs and spices. And garnished with fresh ginger and coriander leaves. The Channa is cooked so well that when you bite on them they simply melt in your mouth. You must try them with Roti (Indian bread) or with Garlic Naan.
You can also have the pindi chole channa with chicken tikka or lamb tikka roll. Simply add delicious flavour to the rolls. Wanted to highlight that Pindi Chole channa is not for people who are cautious about ghee and butter. Because the Pindi Chole channa are almost fried in desi ghee butter to give that intense delicious flavour.
I would suggest you order Pindi Chole Channa with Roti/Garlic Naan and Methi Chicken Karahai. For starters, you can have lip-smacking lamb kebabs too. The combination of Pindi chole channa with mint raitha they serve with onion and lettuce salad is heavenly.
