Restaurant description

Hawkyns by multi-award-winning chef Atul Kochhar offers vibrancy, incredible aromas, flavours, textures and an excitement to the picturesque town of Old Amersham.

The Indian Essence menu includes dishes such as Malai Murg Tikka, Samosa Chaat, Dum Biriyani, Railway Lamb Curry and Tandoori Chicken, plus delicious dishes and tasting menu for vegetarian and pescatarian requirements.

A range of slick, refreshing cocktail mixes are offset by a bold wine list: perfectly matched to complement the intense flavours of the dishes. Regularly changing vintage bottles are available from the bar at Indian Essence near Bromley, as well as cooling masala iced tea, or passion fruit and chutney martini.

Situated inside The Crown Inn, a mere 5-minutes drive from Amersham tube station on the Metropolitan line, Hawkyns 2 AA rosette restaurant showcases Atul’s Pan-Indian cuisine.

    This was the second time we had visited for lunch inside a month and once again enjoyed the experience. The food was excellent as was the service.

    Great atmosphere and staff very attentive. I was expecting it to be pretentious but the restaurant and staff were far from that. Food was a little bit disappointing. It lacked punch and flavour. We had aloo tiki and beetroot croquets for starter; the latter had a bit of a weird flavour Main course was grilled prawns, a portion of 3 only, chicken biryani (rice felt slightly over cooked) and black dhal which was a tad bland. The naan bread was excellent though. Dessert was chocolate mousse light and airy. Overall we were slightly disappointed and were expecting so much more from the food. Price was reasonable which made up for our disappointment.

    We had a lovely meal at Hawkyns and were delighted to get the chance to meet Atul and Galton. The food was absolutely delicious and so was the wine flight. Staff were efficient, polite and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
