Review on Chai Ki

Restaurateur Rohit Chugh, founder of Roti Chai in Marylebone opened his second project called Chai Ki in Canary Wharf's Crossrail Place, a dining and shopping destination designed by Norman Foster. A spacious venue spread over two levels inspired by the coastal drinking dens of south India, the interiors have been created by DesignLSM with a Toddy Shop bar and a more formal dining room. It has urban industrial-esque interiors with exposed ducts and pipes, together with metal and wood finishes and leather banquettes. There are also references to India with wall lighting made from the headlights seen on scooters in India.

Showcasing modern contemporary Indian cuisine and soul food designed for sharing it celebrates the flavours, colours and aromas from the subcontinent. Typical offerings on the carte include Goan prawns, roasted garlic, Goan chilli, rock samphire, cinnamon and tempered coconut rice or Welsh lamb, green chilli, rock salt, coriander, garam masala and kachumber raita. Amongst the large plates there's Dum Ka Gosht, slow cooked Welsh lamb shoulder, saffron, Kashmiri and green chilli, mushroom spinach, 'achar' or from the sea salmon Moilee, grilled salmon, honey, orange zest, green chilli, lime leaf coconut moilee and fennel beetroot crush.

Chai Ki has a carefully compiled wine list to complement the food, together with craft beers and signature cocktails like Maha Mojito Lychee Rose Bellini, ginger-infused rum, fresh mint and lime.
