TATLER GIVES CHAKRA A VOTE OF APPROVAL


Notting HIll’s Chakra, a new restaurant set up by well-known chef Andy Varma, has been voted one of the Top 8 Best Indian Restaurants in the UK at the Tatler 2012 Restaurant Awards. Andy says, “This is a great honour. Thanks to all who sup- ported us.”


Chakra’s inspiration comes from ancient Vedic scriptures. The Chakras, or energy points, are thought to vitalise the physical body, associated with positive flow of energy and the interaction of a physical emotional and mental nature - balancing mind body and soul. It is with this knowledge that Andy travelled extensively through India helping him come


up with his own interpretation of The Chakras by invigorat- ing the positive energy with food from different schools of Indian cooking, balanced through the use of marinating and adding his technical expertise in kitchen skills and spices.


In the Royal Palaces the gourmet chefs invented the concept of regal ‘plates’ or platters for sharing and at Chakra Andy re-creates this traditional way of ‘running’ the food from pan to table. With a unique menu designed to share, it combines seven schools of cooking, each containing recipes that have evolved throughout the centuries.
