Indian Restaurants Lose Michelin Stars

2nd October 2018


Two high profile Indian restaurants in London have lost their Michelin stars, after changes in personnel.


Tamarind in Mayfair, the first Indian restaurant in London to win a Michelin star in 2001, is one of 15 restaurants to lose its star, following the departure of head chef Peter Joseph, who left to open his own London site Kahani. The restaurant is set to relaunch this month with a new menu after refurbishment in the summer, under the direction of chefs Karunesh Khanna and Manav Tuli.


Jamavar, also in Mayfair, lost its star after executive head chef Rohit Ghai left the restaurant earlier this year to open his own restaurant Kutir, due to open later in 2018; when the restaurant group’s culinary director Surender Mohan stepped in to support the kitchen.
