Rohit Ghai, the chef that won a Michelin-star at Jamavar in record-breaking time will open his first solo site, Kutir, this November.
Kutir is co-founded by Ghai and Abhi Sangwan who have worked together as colleagues for many years at Gymkhana, Jamavar and Bombay Bustle side by side.
Located just off Chelsea’s Sloane Square in an elegant townhouse, Kutir will offer a punchy, authentic and traditional menu from one of the UK’s most successful and creative Indian chefs.
Kutir, meaning ‘a cottage’ in Sanskrit, draws inspiration from the royal tradition of hunting expeditions in the luscious forests and jungles of the Indian countryside. The food is representative of the feasting-style, convivial and celebratory dining that occurs on these retreats, and menus feature highly seasonal ingredients with an emphasis on game and seafood.
Kutir will offer a tasting or ‘expedition’ menu of 6 courses for £60, as well as a full a la carte menu featuring dishes such as the Truffle and Mushroom Khichadi, the Lobster Bonda and Rasam, 24-hour slow-cooked roganjosh and a Tandoori stone bass with crispy squid.
Rohit Ghai has an impressive CV, having been Executive Chef at Bombay Bustle, Jamavar (earning a Michelin star in under a year – the first time an Indian chef has done this in the UK), Gymkhana, Hoppers, Trishna, Verandah (in Copenhagen) and Benares over the last 10 years. His award-winning Indian food has attracted international praise and critical acclaim.
