Atul Kochhar’s second Marlow restaurant Vaasu opening soonHALAL STATUS Halal meat options • Alcohol served
Two Michelin-starred Indian Chef Aul Kochhar has announced the opening date of his second restaurant in Buckinghamshire’s market town of Marlow.
Launching on 10 July, barely a week after restaurants across England reopen for business, Vaasu will start “as a takeaway and delivery for the moment”, Atul has said.
Similar to Kanishka in London Mayfair, the menu at Vaasu, while also inspired by the “flavours of North India”, will be influenced more “by Punjab, Delhi and Rajasthan” rather than the Seven Sisters in the north east.
But as is case with most of his restaurants, Atul has confirmed with FtLion that the “meats are all Halal – as always” at his new venture.
Taking over from the long-established Italian eatery Villa D’Este on Chapel Street, Vaasu has some big shoes to fill given the success of its sister restaurant Sindhu.
Located just over the bridge in The Compleat Angler, Sindhu, which translates as ‘River’ and overlooks the River Thames, holds a 2 AA Rosette status and is currently rated in the top three restaurants of Marlow, according to Trip Advisor.
Atul Kochhar is distinguished as the first Indian chef to be awarded a Michelin star, which he achieved at another Mayfair establishment, Tamarind, in 2001.
While he also owns two other restaurants – Hawkyns in Amersham as well as Indian Essence in Pettswood – his sixth, Mathura, is coming soon too an old fire station in Westminster.
2 Chapel Street, Marlow, SL7 1DD.
