Chokhi Dhani, Battersea

The name is little known in the capital, but Indian restaurant Chokhi Dhani has been serving customers in Rajasthan for three decades. Opening in Battersea on April 12, this first London outpost will serve a modern interpretation of traditional Rajasthani cuisine, alongside a selection of dishes from throughout the subcontinent. Notable artworks are set to be part of the dining experience, too - you won’t be able to miss the life-sized bronze elephant sculpture.
