Atul Kuchhar Wembley Way

14th July 2021

Chef Atul Kochhar is to launch a restaurants in Wembley and Beaconsfield in Buckinghamshire.

Masalchi, which means “the spice master”, will be on the corner of Olympic Way and Wembley Park Boulevard. It will serve a pan-Indian menu of dishes that Kochhar discovered at street markets during his gastronomical travels of India. The menu will include Gurda Kapura Masala (a spicy curry made with offal and freshly roasted garam masala in a tomato-rich gravy) and Purani Dilli Ki Nihari Handi (old Delhi-style lamb stew) alongside grilled dishes.

Kochhar said: “The energy and vibrancy of Wembley Park makes it one of the most exciting places in London right now. Opening my new dining concept in this neighbourhood and destination makes a lot of sense and will be a thrilling next chapter.”

Kochhar will also be adding to his portfolio with an opening in Beaconsfield. Kochhar has secured the former Azzurri Group-owned Zizzi premises in Aylesbury End to launch Riwaz this year.

Kochhar has recently launched Hawkyns in nearby Amersham, plus Sindhu and Vassu – both in Marlow. He also operates Indian Essence in Petts Wood, Kent.
