Posh Indian for the Elephant

Kachori, a smart new Indian restaurant, opened this week at the Elephant Park development scheme in southeast London, with a kitchen run by highly rated Brinder Narula, a former head chef at Gymkhana and Benares.

Named after the savoury or sweet-stuffed deep-fried batter balls sold as snacks in India, Kachori describes itself as a modern regional restaurant, offering dishes inspired by both street food and more formal meals from the northeastern Indian states of Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi and Punjab.

It is owned by Sorowar Khan, the restaurateur behind the long-established Mango in Borough, and is a high-profile addition to the £2.5 billion development scheme aimed at regenerating the previously run-down Elephant & Castle area.

With a ‘soft opening’ lasting until 8 June, Kachori is open from breakfast through to dinner.
