Special Menus and Offers
Known for its modern twist on authentic Indian dishes, Chaiwala is unveiling a new menu this month. Carnivores are sure to love the Indochina pork ribs and the char-grilled tandoori beef ribs, but there is also plenty new for the veggies out there. Offerings include a paneer tikka skewer and vegan kofta curry, which can all be complemented by sides of chote mote aloo anardan; kashimiri nuttie mutter pulao; and mint paratha. Guests opting for the “Dabbawala Tasting Menu” can enjoy a carefully-curated wine pairing alongside their meal, but Chaiwala is also offering a new range of inventive mocktails to wash down all that spice, with refreshing, non-alcoholic drinks including the Punjab Cadillac Colada Virgin and the Shikanji.

Available in store and via Black Sheep Restaurants GO until 30 September, expect to tuck into a freshly-baked baguette filled to the brim with juicy Kagoshima pork katsu, tangy Tonkatsu sauce and a rich Japanese mustard coleslaw.
