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.
