Kachori, a contemporary Indian restaurant, has recently launched in Elephant Park, London, joining the vibrant collection of culinary options. Led by Executive Chef Brinder Narula, formerly of renowned establishments Benares and Gymkhana, Kachori celebrates the flavors of Northern Indian cuisine, drawing inspiration from Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, and Punjab. The restaurant is the brainchild of experienced restaurateur Sorowar Khan, with hospitality consultant Humayun Hussain overseeing the project.
Executive Chef Brinder Narula showcases dishes inspired by Rajasthan and Punjab at Kachori, the latest addition to Elephant Park’s diverse culinary scene.
The menu at Kachori features an array of enticing dishes, including small plates like Bikaneri Raj Kachori and Truffle and Matar ki Kachori, as well as larger plates representing various regions of India, such as Malay Meen Cod Loin and Keralan Beef Chilli Ulathu. Guests can complement their meals with a well-curated selection of beverages, including beers, spirits, cocktails, and mocktails. With a capacity of 132 covers, the restaurant offers both indoor and outdoor seating, providing scenic views of the two-acre public park at the heart of Elephant Park. The interior design exudes a modern and airy ambiance, allowing for a seamless transition from daytime to evening dining experiences.
Lendlease’s Head of Retail & Place Assets, Guy Thomas, expressed his excitement about Kachori joining the diverse culinary scene in Elephant Park. He says, “From day one, we’ve focused on bringing best-in-class local businesses and independents to the neighbourhood while delivering a huge amount of variety in one place. Elephant Park’s dining spans five continents and more than a dozen countries, and Kachori fits right in, as a brand with a community feel from hugely experienced restaurateurs.”
Sorowar Khan, the proprietor of Kachori, expressed delight in introducing their debut concept to Elephant Park, recognizing the development’s reputation for curating a diverse range of food and beverage operators. Khan believes that diners will fully appreciate the unique experience offered by Kachori, as it brings a contemporary taste of North India rarely found elsewhere.
Lendlease has also commenced the latest phase of Elephant Park’s development, with ten new retail and restaurant units now available. Expected to be completed in early 2024, this phase encompasses the vibrant areas of Sayer Street, Heygate Street, and the central two-acre public park. Lendlease has actively sought a mix of local independent operators and renowned London brands that reflect the distinctive character of Elephant and Castle when selecting occupants for the various spaces within the project.
