Kanishka by Atul Kochhar has launched a brand new menu! Building on the previous menu, the new menu continues to focus on Pan-Indian food embracing the styles of India’s various regions. In addition to the refreshed a la carte menu, the restaurant has also unveiled a brand new six-course tasting menu, a three-course set lunch menu and a lighter lunchtime tasting menu.
Kanishka celebrates the vibrant flavours and cultural heritage of India in the heart of Mayfair. Led by the renowned Chef Atul Kochhar, Kanishka offers a unique gastronomic journey through the various regions of India, presenting a symphony of signature dishes prepared with outstanding ingredients.
Kanishka’s skilled kitchen team have curated a symphony of new dishes representing the diverse and distinct flavours of India’s various regions, from Punjab to Kerala, Goa to Hindostan and everywhere in between.
New dishes on the menu include the likes of South Indian bonda, comprising a Cromer crab fritter with grilled corn, apple salad, kimchi and chilli-tamarind chutney; Tamil podi masala with pan-seared hand-dived Orkney scallop; Bihari Ahuna lamb curry rife with chilli, fennel and stone flowers; Ajwaini jhinga, a dish of tandoor grilled prawns with ajwain, smoked aubergine baba ghanoush and citrus chutney and one of Kanishka’s new specials is Lagusta Xec Xec, Lobster curry with Goa xec xec gravy, apple pickle and wild rice bhel. Our favourite was a Muntjac deer keema masala with crisp potatoes and the flakiest butteriest paratha.
On the launch of Kanishka’s new menu, Chef Patron Atul Kochhar said: “I am very excited to launch the new menu at Kanishka, which takes a Pan-Indian approach, but with even more focus on India’s specific regions. India is huge and the national cuisine varies so much from region to region and that’s something I’m very keen to showcase at Kanishka.”
On the drinks side, expect a curated wine list and expertly crafted cocktails with an Indian twist like a Tandoori Pineapple Rum Punch with tandoor pineapple infused Bacardi rum, spice rum liqueur, lime, ginger beer and cinnamon syrup. The saffron lassi is also a must try. The drink that stole the show for us was a masala chai. The best masala chai in London, by a long way. This is an overnight process and the spicing of the tea was a moreish balance of cardamom, cloves, star anise and other secret spices lovingly folded in with a touch of sugar and milk. The chai pairs well with the chai creme brulee too.
The new menu is available now, alongside the new tasting menu priced at £85 per-person, the lunchtime tasting menu at £65 per person, and the set lunch menu priced at £38 per person.
