Chourangi – Review

Introducing the leading Indian restaurant Chourangi. The restaurant first opened its doors in October 2021, and has been on a mission to take Londoners on a culinary journey into India’s explored cuisines from the heritage city of Calcutta.

This is the first venture into London by India’s largest group of restaurant chains that now operate an impressive 130 restaurants across five countries! The site on Quebec Street, right by Marble Arch marks the group’s first excursion into the UK, following the much-loved, similar concept, Oh! Calcutta in India.

Chourangi takes its name from Chowringhee, the oldest and most vibrant quarter of Calcutta, the restaurant brings alive a unique culinary tradition that has been born of centuries of overseas traders leaving their mark on this vibrant culture.

As you walk in, the atoms hit you instantly, as does the warmth of the hosts and team. The atmosphere is electric for all the right reasons and the place is bustling. It wasn’t what I expected for Wednesday evening however this was a sign for what was to come during the meal.

If you’re an adventurous foodie, this is the perfect place to dine with an extensive menu. The team also know the menu very well and recommended some of the classic dishes as well as some of their favourites.

We went for the Lotus Stem Sweet Potato Chat, Nizam’s Malai Tikka, Grand Trunk Black Dahl and the Kosha Lamb. What a treat on the senses, from the depth of flavour, to the presentation and even the textural aspect. This was a cuisine I’d not experienced previously due to the lack of northeastern cuisine in London restaurants, but it’s a unique and impressive blend of British, Dutch, Armenian, French, Portuguese and Chinese flavours that have descended over a 300-year history.

The innovative dishes and recipes have been carefully curated by Chef turned restaurateur Anjan Chatterjee, partnering with his dear friend Aditya Ghosh (Lawyer turned airline entrepreneur). Anjan and Aditya came up with the concept over a meal in one of Anjan’s restaurants a few years ago and it was Anjan’s dream to put forth the heritage cuisine of Calcutta on the global food and what a better way to do it than to showcase it in London – the food capital of the world. I’d go back to Chourangi and have recommended it several times already to friends and colleagues.
