From the moment you walk through the door, eclectic interiors transport you through a historical journey. Though, as stated above, everything in Indica is not completely factual in its details, it is useful to know what the Greeks and Romans thought of India and how they may have viewed it. From this point onwards, the text mostly tells the story of a naval adventure. There is also an extensive selection of botanical gins in which the bar uses so many of the discovered plants and spices. Thapar also speculates that he wrote his account some years after his visit to India, and at this time, he "arrived at the number seven, forgetting the facts as given to him". Arrian also drew on a number of other ancient writers, including Eratosthenes and, most notably, Megasthenes whose own book was also named Indica.

On our tour we journeyed first through the slow-braised short rib glazed with raan sauce and accompanied by turmeric hispi cabbage. The portions are small and so fresh, we wanted to order a couple more. We also enjoyed the Amritsari soft shell crab with tadka mayonnaise and tamarind King Edward potato. The Indian elephants are far stronger than the Libyan elephantsbecause of the abundance of food on the Indian soil. With the excellent food and exceptional service to be found at Flora Indica, this quirky Modern Indian restaurant in South Kensington is well worth a visit and we will definitely be joining the ranks of loyal returning fans of Flora Indica! With a delectable menu of small plates, adapted traditional curries, creative cocktails and a botanical gin selection, Flora Indica showcases the distinguished flavour combinations originating from the botanical foundation.

Flora Indica provided warm, thoughtful, efficient and attentive service. Roxburgh was an eminent botanist, horticulturalist, and physician. Nearchus is congratulated for a safe journey and rewarded for his efforts. After several years, the royal rule was replaced by democratic city states, although there existed a few kings when Alexander invaded India. Foreigners who die in India are buried, and their property is delivered to their relatives.
