Have you heard of Chor Bizarre? This hidden gem in the heart of London’s Mayfair provides you with a truly unique dining experience. The Indian restaurant celebrates its 15th birthday this year and to celebrate this landmark, a brand new menu has been launched and its interiors revamped. A new private dining area – The Bollywood Basement – will provide theatrical entertainment whilst you enjoy your meal.
Literally translated to ‘thieves market,’ Chor Bizarre is a quirky and stylish venue for experiencing a little taste of India. Every piece of furniture and all of the décor – from the table you eat at, to the mirrors on the wall, to the hanging lanterns, has been hand-picked, sourced and imported to London from the bazaars of India. None of the furnishings are the same yet the entire interior pulls together in a fabulous and authentic way. Further, every single furnishing that you see on display can be bought if you so wish – ‘just make us an offer we can’t refuse’ is their age old mantra.
To celebrate London Cocktail Week (7th to 13th October, 2013), for seven days Chor Bizarre will add ‘The Bengal Tiger’ and ‘Tamarind Margarita’ to their extensive list of alcoholic beverages. With winter around the corner these exquisite cocktails, with subtle hints of Indian spice, are perfect to get you through the coming winter blues.
As well as being one of Mayfair’s most coveted fine dining restaurants, frequented by countless Hollywood and London elite – Chor Bizarre was also London’s first ever Indian Tea Bar serving an array of carefully selected blends including Darjeeling, Assam, Nilgiri, Kashmiri Kehwa and the famous Masala Tea, flavoured with the warming and delicate spices, making the ‘Chai Bizarre’ a must-visit for the tea and detox lovers alike.
And as if that wasn’t enough, the restaurant can, on request, fly in top chefs from India to London to cook a ‘Kashmiri Wazwan’ – the 36 course feast typically known to be eaten by the kings of Cashmere throughout history.
So if you are in London ensure you find the time to visit this exclusive and unusual eatery, just don’t forget your camera!
