Restaurant description

From renowned Michelin-starred Chef Atul Kochhar, Kanishka Restaurant showcases food from the Northeast of India in a sleek, modern atmosphere. Relatively unexplored, Northeastern Indian cuisine is defined by its own unique flavours and combinations, quite different from cuisine elsewhere in the country, and is known for its use of bamboo shoots, mustard oil and fermented vegetables.

At Kanishka Restaurant savour modern interpretations of traditional dishes, all made using local produce keeping in mind core values of the cuisine. Signature offerings on the Kanishka menu, which changes seasonally, include Atul’s chicken tikka pie, banana leaf-steamed sea bass with sorrel chutney, or venison steak with grilled apple and aubergine. Round off the meal with a tempting dessert like coconut rice pudding or tandoori fruit custard.

At the Kanishka bar, indulge in a variety of flavourful cocktails, or make your own, complemented with snacks like fried momos, fish pakodas or keema naan.

Kanishka Restaurant in London's Mayfair is a 7-minute walk from Green Park Tube Station.

    Wow! What a fabulous night. Tasting menu with pairing wines was absolutely superb, waiters were very attentive and eager to help in every way. Interior was lovely. All in all would highly recommend it.

    We were greeted warmly on arrival and shown to a very nice table quickly after arriving. The menus were produced quickly and explained helpfully. We opted for a la carte, as the choice of main course was a bit of a struggle on the set menu. My main course of monkfish was really good, as we're the side dishes of dal and bread. We shared the tikka pie as a starter. No room left for dessert. Only slight downside, we were not offered an aperitif, but ordered champagne anyway.

    We booked the special 2/3 course menu for an early dinner. The food far exceeded our expectations and was sublime. The service was fantastic and the wait staff knew the dishes and were able to explain each and every one

    4 of us dined here and had the very good value set menu. The food was excellent - a lovely variety of dishes with great flavours to choose from, including rabbit tikka which was delicious. Adding £16 for a half bottle of house wine each made it a very affordable fine dining experience. Service was attentive and friendly It was great to see Atul in the kitchen and meeting him afterwards. We will definitely be back soon.

    Best meal I've had in London in a long time. Set menu was delicious - everything taste divine. Rabbit starter was my favourite (and I don't usually eat rabbit). Would definitely return.
