Arguably one of the most unique Indian restaurants in London, Atul Kochhar's Maddox Street restaurant, Kanishka, brings together flavours and cooking methods from the country's lesser known provinces. With a particular focus on Eastern Indian's Seven Sister States, the menu offers up a stunning selection, including a Sikkim-inspired venison tartare with naan croutons, pan-seared seafood and chocolate rasmalai.

As for the drinks, Kocchar has made them a key element in the Kanishka experience with a stand-out selection of cocktails available such as a Roast Banana Old Fashioned, perfect for enjoying on their outdoor terrace, or sipping down in their private garden room while you mull over their extensive whisky selection. 

The interiors hark back to tradition, ritual and nostalgia with topiary, elephants and vibrant indoor foliage mixing with calming blues and intricate beading.
