Atul Kochhar and Jitindar Singh launch Indian Essence in Kent


Michelin-starred chef Atul Kochhar has teamed up with fellow restauranteur Jitindar Singh to launch Indian Essence, a new Indian dining experience in Kent that promises to combine the finest seasonal ingredients with Kochhars unique understanding of Indian flavours.


Atul Kochhar is the Chef/Patron of Benares restaurant in Mayfair, and was the first ever Indian chef to win a coveted Michelin Star. His contemporary cooking style has been credited with changing the perception of Indian dining in the UK, bringing a modern British twist to his bold flavour combinations.


Meanwhile, Jitindar Singh has over seventeen years experience in the hospitality industry, having worked with the prestigious Oberoi and Taj Group hotels. Boasting an extensive knowledge of the Kent region, he has managed award-winning Indian restaurants in both the West End and Bromley.


Together they have devised a menu that presents classic Indian flavours in innovative new ways, with an extensive a la carte menu complemented by a trio of set menus, and a tasting menu designed to broaden customers understanding of Indian cooking and its wide-ranging possibilities.


To complement Indian Essences ground-breaking menu, there is an immaculate wine list selected from the most revered wineries of the world, accompanied by an equally exciting cocktail list.


The venture will see Kochhars progressive Indian cuisine adapted to a neighbourhood setting, in order to achieve an exciting new spin on the local Indian restaurant.
