Peter Joseph leaves Tamarind after 10 years to go solo with Kahani
The head chef of Michelin-starred Indian restaurant Tamarind is leaving his role after 10 years to launch a solo project this summer.

Peter Joseph will open Kahani in Chelsea this summer at 1 Wilbraham Place, opposite the Cadogan Hall concert venue.

Translating as ‘story’ in Urdu, Kahani will offer an “inventive and modern approach” to Indian cuisine, with a menu relying heavily on grilled proteins and vegetables from a robata grill, as opposed to curries (of which there will only be two).

The restaurant will encourage diners to forgo the formalities of fine dining for the first courses and eat with their fingers.

Interior design by KAI Interiors will feature Indian colour palettes and fabrics, with brass trims. 

”Kahani means ‘story’ and I am thrilled to be embarking on this new chapter in my life,” says Joseph. “Love for food and a pursuit of excellence in all that I commit to has taken me on a fascinating journey.”

Joseph was head chef of Michelin-starred Mayfair restaurant Tamarind since 2012.
