Dine at Chokhi Dhani, Nine Elms, Battersea, London
Hailed as a “tasteful and authentic symbol of ethnic village life,” Chokhi Dhani or “Fine Village or Good Dwelling,” opened near Jaipur in 1990 as a celebration of traditional Rajasthani cuisine. Since then the original restaurant has expanded to include a huge 22-acre five-star resort and event park, as well as numerous other resorts across the country.
Chokhi Dhani’s founder, Gul Vaswani, started the enterprise with the intention of preserving and celebrating Rajasthani culture as well as introducing it to local and international travellers.
Along the way, Chokhi Dhani has received a number of accolades, including India’s Most Innovative Tourism Project by the Ministry of Tourism.
Marking the first overseas opening for the group, Chokhi Dhani is the brainchild of extraordinary young chef, hotelier and entrepreneur Kriti Vaswani who is following in the footsteps of her father, Gul Vaswani.
We were lucky enough to attend the launch of Chokhi Dhani complete with Pixie Lott performing a DJ set.
