The Chapati Club has begun a delivery service based in Bermondsey, south London, extending its Indian and Kenyan-influenced offersings, dishes – many of them made to family recipes – outside of the restaurant’s west London catchment area.
Opened in 2017 by Resh Sonchhatla and Heena Varambhia, Chapati Club is a pared-back, non-traditional Indian restaurant. The menu includes Chicken 61, a classic chicken curry named after Resh’s aunt’s door number and made using her homemade garam masala.
The menu’s numerous vegetarian and vegan dishes, which reflect Heena’s Gujarati background, include Pau Bhaji, buttery buns served with a spicy mash, a creamy Paneer Curry with-a-kick for protein-lovers, and a Black Dhal.
All of these are available on the new delivery menu – with some of the restaurant’s most in-demand dishes – alongside north Indian favourite Butter Chicken; a house Prawn Curry’ Acton Railway Lamb
Sides include their freshly-made signature chapatis, ,pilau rice and beetroot and vegan raitas.
Meanwhile, ahead of its reopening for full restaurant service in May, Chapati Club’s complete menu is available for takeaway from and delivery within 5km of the restaurant in W3. Among the star dishes here are Bhel Puri, a favourite Mumbai roadside snack combining puffed rice with tamarind and coriander chutneys; chunky, triple-cooked aubergine Bang Bang; and saucy, earthy Goat Curry.
Clubbers ordering from Acton can also choose from a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks including assorted lassis, Kenya’s favourite Tusker lager, and a selection of wines chosen for the restaurant by Vindinista, Acton’s boutique wine shop.
A Spotify playlist – compiled by the owners – can be streamed to recreate the restaurant’s buzzing atmosphere at home.
