Having been open for just a matter of weeks, Fusion Clan has already proved a big hit with locals in Warwick. And it is not difficult to see why.

Tucked away in the former home of Pickled Crab on Smith Street, the new eatery brings something different to the town's culinary scene.

Sitting side by side with a number of well-established curry houses, this Asian restaurant does not bring your expected array of baltis and jalfrezis. Instead it brings a range of fusion dishes - that you need to try for yourself.

On first entering the premises, it is clear how much care has gone into revamping the restaurant. The contemporary new look is both stylish and welcoming; a lovely place to spend an evening.

For our starters were ordered the Tamarind Glazed Chicken Wings; a generous portion of Gchujang marinated wings glazed with tamarind and served with a fresh salad. Packed full of sticky flavour, these wings were an excellent start to the meal.

Alongside these we also chose the Kattirachi Arancini which showed off brilliantly how Fusion Clan - and head chef Joshi Johny - looks to put a twist on western classics.

Described on the menu as 'an east west delicacy', the dish was kuttanad rice wrapped around mozzarella and venison and all covered in panko breadcrumbs. An absolute winner.

For our mains we had the 'Homely Butter Chicken Masala'. The beautifully moist chicken served in a rich creamy sauce was delightful, as was the accompanying kerala parotta.

We also had the 'Beef Coconut Roast'. Also served with kerala parotta, this slow-roasted dish was packed with flavour and very tender meat - none was left on the plate!

These were also joined with a side order of steamed kaima rice, which completed a truly fantastic main course.

Other eye-catching features of the menu (although not ordered) were the Fusion Clan Steak Rib Eye and Kumarakom to Cornwall spiced sea bass. Maybe to be ordered on our next visit.

The evening was then finished with churros for my companion. Accompanied by a lightly spiced caramel sauce - this was another excellent twist on a conventional dish.

Meanwhile I plumped for the sticky toffee pudding and ice cream - a fantastically moist sponge, with very flavoursome slightly spiced ice cream.

If you are yet to try Fusion Clan - I can highly recommend!
