Vaasu by Atul Kochhar
Vaasu by Atul Kochhar lies in the heart of the Georgian town of Marlow in the Chiltern Hills, one of the prettiest locations on the River Thames, bringing exotic flavours, aromas and spices to the heart of this Buckinghamshire town. A love of culinary exploration by twice-Michelin starred chef, Atul Kochhar underscores his deep appreciation for the multiplicity of cooking styles across the Indian sub-continent. The resulting dishes reflect his passion for fine Indian dining highlighted by his motto: first class, friendly and full of flavour.
“The states across India offer a bounty of culinary diversification with differing cooking styles and ingredients resulting in fabulous recipes, steeped in tradition, offering intriguing taste combinations, textures and fragrant aromas from places where the tandoor oven and tawa griddle are kitchen essentials”, says Atul. “Our restaurant Vaasu brings all of this inspiration together, celebrating the life and culture of India through a menu of magnificent dishes, including many vegetarian and vegan choices.”
