Atul Kochhar, in collaboration with Tina English, is opening a new Indian restaurant, which will "showcase the cuisine of territories previously unexplored by London’s restaurants, particularly the Seven Sister States in the most easternmost region of India". It's named after King Kanishka, an emperor of the Kushan dynasty in the second century.
Harden's survey result
“Off to a great start”, with “superb” cuisine, say fans of Atul Kochhar’s “upmarket” (and sizeable: 130 covers) new venture on a site that was previously the Mayfair branch of 28:50 (RIP), and which specialises in the “strongly flavoured”, relatively undiscovered cuisine of India’s north-eastern states (bordering Tibet and China). It’s “not cheap” however, and while “some star dishes” are reported “some of the rest are a little more forgettable”, while the interior design is “relaxing and warm” to some tastes, but – to others – can appear “cold” or “incoherent”.
Kanishka Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Although the food was excellent the sea food curry in particular the meal was let down by a lack of attentive service. "
