Legendary restaurant of a legendary person, Asma Khan. There are many things that we admire about Asma Khan. Not only is her food the stuff of legends, but she is also smart, challenges stereotypes, injustice and discrimination. For her female empowerment is not just a hashtag, but practiced in her working life.
Asma and her food are not only trailblazing here in the UK, but also internationally, as she was the first British chef to be featured on the popular Netflix series, Chef’s Table. And due to this well deserved recognition, her restaurant has become a hot trend.
Darjeeling Express is an all female kitchen located on the top floor of Kingly Court that started out as a supper club. Its cosy atmosphere suits their home cooked meal ethos. Just from this, expect flavourful, hearty food. Like any Indian restaurant, Darjeeling Express is no brainer for vegetarians. For any vegan friends out there, the majority of the vegetarian options on this menu are vegan! We would highly recommend the Khatte Baingan Aubergine, a vegan main dish cooked in tamarind, coconut, almond and peanut base.
