Kouchi Elephant

2nd June 2023

Sorowar Khan, owner of Mango Indian restaurant in Borough, south east London, has opened a new all-day dining Indian restaurant in nearby Elephant & Castle. Kachori has opened in Ash Avenue in Lendlease’s Elephant Park, focused on north Indian cuisine.

Executive chef Brinder Narula, ex Benares and Gymkhana, has created dishes inspired by the cooking of the Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi and Punjab regions. His menu features small plates such as Bikaneri Raj Kachori and Truffle and Matar ki Kachori, as well as larger plates including Malay Meen Cod Loin and Keralan Beef Chilli Ulathu, alongside beer, spirits, cocktails and mocktails.

The 132-cover venue has indoor and outdoor seating, overlooking a two-acre public park.

Khan said: “Elephant Park stands out for its curation of diverse food and drink operators, and we are thrilled to open this debut concept at the scheme, introducing a contemporary taste of north India that is rarely found anywhere else.”
