Public Affair is another Khan Market hit from stables of the Townhouse team. Eccentrically retro with dimly-lit candlestand bulbs on wooden beams, exposed plaster, Latin deep house music and leather-clad menus. The restaurant feels expansive with smartly spaced out covers. Public Affair’s menu spans continents, with a distinctive South American flair and some Townhouse touches. I skipped the backroom Teppanyaki and dived straight into a plate of 'Gambas al Ajillo', loving the bouncy texture of its shrimps but wishing for more pronounced garlic and herbal flavour in the olive oil. My three-tiered Kebob Platter featured slightly dry but well seasoned 'Chicken Tikkas', gorgeously crisp-skinned 'Potato Wedges', moist 'Fish Tikkas' with a minty 'Yogurt Dip', hefty 'Lamb Kebobs' put together from roughly minced lamb and a zesty portion of Quinoa. It could have done with fluffier Pita though and another dash of seasoning in the creamy Hummus. My meal ended on a bit of a low with a 'Chalky Maraschino Cherry Cheesecake' - alone maraschino cherry on top and some macerated ones at the bottom, gratuitous silver dragees, a mushy centre and no biscuit base for contrast.
