Arguably one of the most unique Indian restaurants in London, Atul Kochhar's Maddox Street restaurant, Kanishka, brings together flavours and cooking methods from across the Indian subcontinent. With dishes inspired from memories and travels across a contemporary Indian menu, the menu offers up a stunning selection, including Seared Orkney scallops with wild nettle, corn, coconut and caviar; Atul's famous Butter Chicken - tandoor roasted chicken tikka simmered in plum tomatoes and fenugreek gravy; Traditional Old Delhi Style Biryani and Peanut Butter Parfait with caramelised banana, 24-carat gold leaf and marshmallow.

As for the drinks, Kochhar 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 perched at the bar, or weather permitting, on their outdoor terrace, while you mull over their extensive whisky selection. 

The interiors hark back to tradition, ritual and nostalgia mixed with calming blues and intricate beading.
