50% off at Kasturi

Having been awarded several top honours since its opening, Kasturi has set itself apart from the competition by offering truly exquisite Indian cuisine. Just a few of Kasturi's badges of honour include being picked as a finalist for the UK Best Dishes Awards by Restaurant Magazine, and being ranked among the top 30 best restaurants in the UK by the British Curry Awards.

Previously located in Aldgate from 2002 to 2014, Kasturi relocated to Charlton. Now with an illustriously decorated new restaurant and a fantastic new Head Chef, the talented Rajendra Balmiki, this North Indian eatery features a carefully constructed menu and superb service.

Kasturi specialises in Pakhtoon cuisine, which is originated from North-West Province of undivided India. The essence of Pakhtoon cuisine is in the preparation of kebabs and grill foods which utilises the juices of meats and vegetables in the cooking process to minimise the use of ghee and butter.

Kasturi does not change the true nature of Indian food for the sake of undefined modernisation, but aims to preserve the glorious heritage of Indian sub-continental dishes by retaining their authenticity - taking pride in presenting Indian Sub-continental cuisine in its raw, original form without compromising in variation.

Kasturi intends to bring back the glorious age of the Maharajas, when dining was intended to be a memorable experience, with tantalising dishes such as the chef's specialty, the Murg Shahjahani, a stuffed chicken breast roll marinated with a rich ensemble of spices before being oven cooked and served in a thick medium and spicy sauce, and the award winning Koh-e-Avadh, a lamb based dish reminiscent of rogan josh, albeit enriched with cardamom and saffron.

There are also a wide array of vegetarian dishes for the meat averse, with a wealth of other delectable dishes ranging across the spice spectrum, ensuring that all walks of life will find something utterly irresistible at Kasturi.

Important Information

Please Note: The tastecard discount is only valid when an order includes a starter and/or side with a main course. The tastecard discount is for a maximum of 2 diners per tastecard booking. Please be aware that online bookings will not be accepted at Kasturi. Failure to book in advance via telephone and mentioning the tastecard will render the discount invalid.

  • "This is our favourite Indian restaurant EVER and luckily is ten minutes' walk from our house! The staff are always friendly and attentive, it's CHEAP even without the Taste discount, and the food is amazing! They do a wonderful saag paneer, the creamiest I have ever had and the tikka tandoori meat is delicious. Sabzi badam pasanda is amazing - sweet, creamy and delicious - and the poppadoms and pickles are great. Good Indian beer on tap too! We can't recommend Kasturi enough. Hannah "

  • "I went to this restaurant last night and had probably one of the best Indian meals I've ever had.  The food was delicious and the portions were the perfect size.  Each dish was full of flavour. The onion bhajs were great and the peshwari naan was the best I've ever tasted and would return for just those alone!    We thoroughly enjoyed our evening in this very relaxed restaurant and would highly recommend it and will definitely be returning!

The lamb korai was also excellent! The service is excellent - attentive but not at all intrusive. The cost is reasonable without taste discount so with it this is a real bargain. Kieron "

  • "Went there a couple of weeks ago and was very surprised, even without the discount the value was very good, as the previous reviewers have said the staff were attentive and friendly, not overly so that it becomes a nuisance. Now the food... the food was great, the Paneer starter was the best I have had for ages!!! And I have been to a lot of different Indian Restaurants this year and without doubt that was the best paneer dish I have had! So much so that me and my friend will be going there often just for that starter! So over all a big thumbs up from me! Arran "
