Rajiv's Kitchen

Rajiv's Kitchen is a new friendly & only Nepalese supper club in East London and we believe in bringing people together to enjoy authentic Nepalese home cooked cuisine, while providing a fun, friendly and attentive service. Having been raised in the surroundings of mountains & rivers in Nepal, I grew up using the fresh herbs & spices for cooking that were often obtained through foraging. I started cooking from a very early age due to living in a large extended family. I learned to cook by observing my mom, aunts, uncles & grandma. Now living in the Big Smoke, I want to share my childhood memories of laughing around the table, munching on spicy & delicious food with my fellow Londoners, the same as I do with my family and friends.
