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.

Kanishka Restaurant Diner Reviews
"The food was superb and this excellent restaurant deserves every success in the future. The service was a tad intrusive but still courteous and polite. The music was a bit loud. "
"Thoroughly enjoyed the food here - the scallops, momos and black dal were especially delicious."
"The Chinese influences on this Indian food is apparent with those sticky MSG undertones. It's tasty and looks great. The dining room is perhaps a bit bling as there's lots of shiny things to catch your eye."
"Some star dishes - the Naga Scallops and the Biryani are very much worth a try. Some of the rest a little more forgettable, nice enough but not outstanding at the price point. A confusing and incoherent-seeming room."
