Empress of India

THE head chef at this popular gastro pub brings over 12 years' experience in Michelin starred kitchens to Victoria Park.

The frequently changing seasonal menu features quality produce from neighbourhood suppliers – meat from Ginger Pig, fish from Jonathan Norris, and sourdough from E5 Bakehouse.

It has grand Victorian pub proportions – with high ceilings, a long bar, and big, light windows – which are quickly filled with hipsters and families alike most evenings and weekends.
