Already a household name in India, this group of luxury hotels and resorts expands internationally for the first time with a restaurant and street food offering in Battersea. The venture will showcase the same mix of fine food and vibrant atmosphere as the group's venues in Rajasthan. Heading up the kitchen is Vishnu Natarajan, formerly head chef of Carom in Soho, and Bhagwan Singh, ex of Mint Leaf.
Hailed as a “tasteful and authentic symbol of ethnic village life,” Chokhi Dhani or “Fine Village or Good Dwelling,” opened near Jaipur in 1990 as a celebration of traditional Rajasthani cuisine. Since then the original restaurant has expanded to include a huge 22-acre five-star resort and event park, as well as numerous other resorts across the country.
Chokhi Dhani’s founder, Gul Vaswani, started the enterprise with the intention of preserving and celebrating Rajasthani culture as well as introducing it to local and international travellers.
Along the way, Chokhi Dhani has received a number of accolades, including India’s Most Innovative Tourism Project by the Ministry of Tourism.
Marking the first overseas opening for the group, Chokhi Dhani is the brainchild of extraordinary young chef, hotelier and entrepreneur Kriti Vaswani who is following in the footsteps of her father, Gul Vaswani.
