Hotel Dalhousie coming to Notting Hill

A new Indian restaurant will open on Westbourne Grove in London's Notting Hill this summer. 

Hotel Dalhousie, named after a picturesque hill town in northern India, will offer a refined menu of tandoor specialities and retro-inspired interiors. 

The concept comes from the same family as another of London's Indian restaurant brands, Tandoor Chop House, and Notting Hill brunch café Eggbreak

The kitchen will be led by chef Kundan Rawat, who has worked at Tandoor Chop House since its launch in 2016 and will now oversee both Indian restaurants. 

Hotel Dalhousie's menu is inspired by north India, with a big focus on tandoor-cooked specialities, including: galouti kebab with spiced minced lamb kebab patties with rose water, chana dal and fresh herb chutney; patrani macchi – sea bass coated in coconut, green chillies, coriander, garlic and mint; burra kebab – mutton chops marinated in yoghurt and cream with spices and peppers; and ajwaini prawns – tandoor king prawns with carom seeds, coriander and cumin. 

During the week, Hotel Dalhousie will open early for breakfast with a lighter menu, and there will be a Mighty Thali Feast on offer for brunch at weekends.

The restaurant will also feature a separate bar on the ground floor, with Indian-inspired cocktails and a dedicated bar snack menu, plus the garden at the rear.
