Review on Gurkha Diner

Gurkha Diner an acclaimed Indian restaurant first opened its doors in 2009 in the leafy suburbs of Cobham in the heart of Surrey, by the team that cooked for Prince Charles and the late Diana, Princess of Wales back in 1992. The restaurant with its frontage of floor to ceiling windows has a smart contemporary décor, with well-laid tables on wood flooring and a pretty walled patio area for dining al fresco when the weather is warm.

The kitchen has been the recipient of numerous plaudits for its authentic cooking and has an award winning chef manning the stoves. Ravi Deulkar trained as a chef with the well regarded Oberoi Hotel Group and was previously head chef at Michelin starred Zaika in Kensington and Rasoi Vineet Bhatia in Chelsea.

Seasonal ingredients are carefully sourced locally and delivered daily ensuring the freshness of the produce. Meats, fish, bread and other foods are cooked in a clay tandoor oven creating a unique and authentic flavour, particularly to the restaurant's signature seafood dishes such as Patrani Machchi from the West region, a whole sea bass prepared in traditional Parsi fashion where it is steam cooked with coconut, sesame seeds, coriander and mint and enveloped in banana leaves.

There is a well crafted cocktail menu together with a first-class wine list created by Sommelier Maria Rodriguez, who previously worked for Gordon Ramsay at Claridges.

    The Massala is, am reliably informed, the Indian restaurant of choice of the Chelsea football team and a host of other celebrities who live nearby.

    Having visited, I'm know now why. It's not the just the whole lobster and Krug champagne on the menus. The food is outstanding. Chef Sinha trained at the famous Taj Hotel - Indian's equivalent of having a being a Roux Scholar.

    He's recruited a brigade of talented regional chefs and devised a menu using traditional family recipes, past down through the generations, revived some long lost one -and then added a modern tweak here and there.

    The results are outstanding.

    The Dahl Makani, a creamy black lentil dish is cooked charcoal for 30 hours.

    The Murgh Tikka Lababdar is the best I've had.

Restaurant menus often vary from day to day, so the above should be treated as examples of what to expect in terms of cuisine and price.
