Natraj by night

 

 

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.

 

Natraj/Neel Akash [Charlotte St]

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.
