Enclaves is a site-within-a-site. A compilation of internal
links to unsung environments that may help further enhance your
enjoyment of Classic Cafe ambience.
Set at the top end of
Charlotte St the bijou Natraj is often helpfully empty even at
weekends. Local media gimps give this a miss to flock instead
to the upmarket trough eateries that so despoil this pleasant
area. A slightly wonky front leads you into a makeshift living-room
lined with classic red leatherette chairs and neat tables. Views
of old Nepal line the walls and cod far-east exotica is everywhere
- from the shrine counter to the hanging mystic lamps. Dishes
are excellent [mutton a must!], the prices are unbeatable, service
is astonishing and the decor just so. The find of the century.
NB: As of May
2000 Natraj changed its name to 'Neel Akash', did a paint job
inside and out and doubled prices! The interior has been ruined
with a complete Charlotte St makeover. The dingy culinary delights
of decades banished at a stroke.
