Harden's says

Rohit Ghai’s solo debut is an Indian fine-dining restaurant on the former site of Vineet Bhatia (RIP). Ghai previously cooked at Gymkhana, Jamavar, and Bombay Bustle; 'Kutir' means cottage in Sanskrit.

“Brilliantly vivid and fresh flavours” from Rohit Ghai’s “wonderful” Indian three-year-old make it a worthy successor to the previous incumbent on this Chelsea site (Vineet Bhatia’s Rasoi, RIP). Adding to its appeal, “it feels like dining in a private house” (“a great setting for a proper catch-up with friends”) with “charming staff”. And – on the first floor – “a small rooftop space lends further appeal”.

Rohit Ghai has done it again at his late-2018 yearling: the latest occupant of the “cosy” and “romantic” (if “on-the-quiet-side”) Chelsea townhouse, which for many years was another premier Indian (Rasoi Vineet Bhatia, RIP). Practically all reports are a hymn of praise to his “faultless cooking”, which has immediately propelled it into London’s very top tier for nouvelle Indian cuisine.

Rohit Ghai has done it again at his late-2018 newcomer: the latest occupant of the “cosy” and “romantic” (if “on-the-quiet-side”) Chelsea townhouse, which for many years was another premier Indian (Rasoi Vineet Bhatia, RIP).

Summary

Ex-Jamavar chef Rohit Ghai is to launch his first solo site in November 2018, on the elegant Chelsea townhouse site that for many years housed Vineet Bhatia’s excellent nouvelle Indian. As well as an à la carte option, the cuisine here will feature a tasting menu inspired by Indian hunting expeditions.

"Bright and airy but compact dining room creates a relaxed atmosphere. The menu is limited but interesting. The food is heavily spiced and may not be to everyone's taste. "
