Marlow is about to add a unique new culinary destination to its increasingly impressive gastronomic line-up. Sindhu by Atul Kochhar, the latest restaurant from the Michelin-starred chef, will open its doors in the Compleat Angler hotel next month.
So, here’s the word on what to expect:
Atul Kochhar is a world-renowned chef-patron, the first ever to win a Michelin star for Indian cuisine. This was first accomplished during his tenure as Head Chef at Tamarind in 2001, he then went on to open the highly acclaimed Benares Restaurant & Bar for which he was awarded second Michelin star in 2007. There’s plenty more info on Atul on Wikipedia including mention of his regular appearances on Great British Menu, Saturday Kitchen and the like.
Sindhu (which means river or ocean), will offer a menu designed to celebrate the very best of traditional Indian cuisine in a contemporary manner.
The menus are inspired by Atul’s love of traditional Indian cuisine, kept alight by his continuous research into ever-evolving regional dishes, combined with his dedication to using the finest British ingredients. The result is an innovative style of authentic modern Indian cuisine that is totally unique. Example dishes include Hiran ka Boti (venison saddle with cardamom and mace), Meen Moilee (wild sea bass with coconut moilee sauce) and Bathak Falliyan (Gressingham duck breast with three bean stew and coriander cress) to name but a few.
For those struggling to make a decision among all the tempting options, the tasting menu will feature a specially chosen selection of appetisers, mains, sides and dessert. The most carefully selected ingredients, the subtlest of spicing, the most exciting flavour combinations… every dish has been designed with more than a dash of that legendary Kochhar magic.
The previously formal restaurant has been transformed, taking inspiration from the rivers of India and their connection to culture and life. The resulting fusion of complementary colours will be the perfect setting for Atul’s sophisticated cuisine.
Looks like Marlow better brace itself for another gastronomic treat!! 🙂
