Chef Rohit Ghai’s latest venture, Koolcha, which opened on Saturday 9th February, serves a menu of his signature biryanis alongside stuffed naans, small plates and grilled sandwiches.
This is the second venue from Abhishake Sangwan and Rohit Ghai, partners in recently opened and well-received Kutir in Chelsea, and their first foray into a casual offering. The 60 cover restaurant includes a cocktail bar and serves a la carte, delivery and takeaway menus.
A la carte options include a number of Rohit’s must-eat signature dishes, including Ghati masala prawns (£8) and Lamb or Vegetable biryanis (£12 - £14), as well as entirely new dishes like the Paneer tikka masala grilled sandwich (£8) and a Lamb khurchan slider (£8). The menu also features ‘Koolcha Meals’ (from £7) which include a kulcha, pickles and salad, and ‘Combo Meals’ (from £10) which come with a kulcha, pickle, raita, pulao and salad.
Dishes are served alongside a short menu of punchy cocktails like the Appu (meaning elephant) with mandarin-infused Ketel One, lemon sherbet, amaro Montenegro and ginger beer (£6.50), beers such as the Malabar IPA (£3.5 half/£6 pint) and Cobra (£3.5 half/£5.5 pint), and Rohit’s signature Masala chai (£2.5).
On his new menu Ghai said, “It’s exciting to be able to adapt my food and play around with a more casual offering. I love fine dining, and that will always be important to me, but I’m enjoying the freedom of this new brand and menu and looking forward to serving relaxed, regularly changing street food dishes at Koolcha”.
Koolcha is an eat-in restaurant that opened at Boxpark Wembley on Saturday 9th February.
