While the hype surrounding the endless restaurant openings in The Westgate continues unabated, much of the acclaim remains sky high, literally.

Because while the rooftop terraces are positively brimming with keen diners desperate to try the broad range of restaurants such as Cinnamon Kitchen’s posh take on Indian, the Italian wonders hailing from Pizza Pilgrims or the novelty of Vietnamese food at Pho, much less is being made of the indoor selection.

Which is not only a massive shame, considering how much effort has been made to select such an eclectic collection of foodie offerings, but also a mistake because it’s seriously good.

The fault lies not with the shoppers and diners themselves, as the design. Housed in a separate section called The Social on the ground floor, it is neither welcoming nor self explanatory. It took ages to locate Tommi’s, unaware that behind the opaque glass lay an entire food hall. With a name like Social, I took it to be a pub, and a fairly dodgy one at that.

More needs to be done to publicise what’s inside, because once in, it’s a foodie wonderland of options, choices, tastes and budgets.

Let’s start with Tommi’s Burger Joint, whose mesh, cardboard and corrugated iron is artfully constructed. Street, but deliberately so. And despite it’s current views of builders and cement mixers, getting on with making and serving some damn fine burgers.

It’s a simple premise. Rock up, choose from classic (Scottish beef) (£6.90), chicken (£8.90), veggie (£6.90), steak (£8.90) or kids (£4.90), add extra fillings from the extensive list of bacon (£1.25), cheese (75p), avocado (£1), bearnaise sauce (£1) or chipotle (£1), bearing in mind they already come with lettuce, red onion, tomato, ketchup, mayo and mustard, the veggie with garlic mayo and avocado. Then order separate fries (£2.95) or sweet potato chips (£3.75) and retire to a formica table.

When your burger is cooked, your name is called and up you go. Then venture around the side where a vast array of free condiments awaits you - everything from chilli sauces and salsas to vast jars of jalapenos and gherkins, mustards and crunchy onions. Heaven for anyone who likes their burgers just so.

And boy they were good; the buns soft, sweet, bouncy, golden, holding together, the meat juicy, tender, cooked medium unless specified, with that scorched griddle flavour. The fillings all conspired to bring out the flavour of the meat and the chips were perfect; crisp, thin and crunchy.

Tommi’s is set to become a destination restaurant despite it’s unobtrusive location and easy on the wallet.

The following weekend found me back, this time lured by Rola Wola’s wares, the newest conscript to The Social’s hub, this time Indian street food served in sour-dough naan breads like burritos, or in a bowl with Sri Lankan pink rice.

A massive hit, and a popular and portable way to eat, Rola Wala certainly introduces you to a whole new range of flavours and tastes. Choose rice or naan, add chicken tikka marinaded in seven spices, red channa dal with lentils, coconut, cinnamon and beetroot, Bengali spiced beef shredded brisket, Keralan chickpea with coconut, turmeric and ginger or the sweet potato saag wala. Add extras such as paneer cheese (75p), throw in a drink - the apple soda is wonderful and the mango and turmeric specific to Rola Wala – enjoy free extras of pickles, grated carrots, fresh herbs, carry your tray to a nearby table and sit.

Enough to satisfy a starving caveman, the whole family tucked in and I even had to leave some of mine I was so stuffed, which for £5.95 was excellent value. As for the £2.95 spiced cream, the only dessert on offer, the square unobtrusively wrapped up in the fridge was one of the most divine and wonderfully surprising treats I can remember: chocolatey, crispy, crunchy, creamy, cold and utterly divine, I would return just for the privilege of another.

Other Social eateries include Benito’s Hat, Shawa Lebanese Grill and Ned’s Noodles, so persevere because Tommi’s and Rola Wala especially are worth the visit alone.
