Fabulous food and service, great value. Highly recommend best in south east London
Chokha is a lovely restaurant and a great addition to Beckenham’s dining options. The website had led me to expect a high standard of food and presentation and I was not disappointed: the biriani was really spectacular - as good as I’ve experienced in a Michelin starred restaurant! We booked at 7pm requesting a quiet table: there was a rowdy children’s birthday party still going on when we arrived (it was the adults being rowdy rather than the children), which was very disturbing: I asked to be moved somewhere further away from them within 15 minutes of arrival and that was done without any fuss or problem and from that point we had a perfect environment. We had cocktails before and after the meal and those were great too. All told a great experience and thoroughly recommended.
Started of well when shown to table. The staff were over attentive on the night and kept coming back to the table every 3 mins, would you like to order ... this happened probably 8 times with different staff which was annoying when trying to chat. Our starters arrived and we all commented on the quality and taste of the food and were excited for our mains. The mains were bland and no heat at all, in fact I’d actually question if my korma had paneer in it as it was cheesy. My friend asked for additional chillis for her fish curry to spice it up but they arrived cut but seeded. They have a good gin menu which we enjoyed but personally I think their wine is over priced. They have the exact same wine as the Kelsey down the road but the Kelsey is £9.50 cheaper a bottle. The decor inside is very tasteful and has a nice colonial feel.
We had a 2 starters (salmon and prawns), lamb biriyani, Kerala fish curry and jaipuri chicken with rice. Starters were mediocre, fish curry bland, Chicken good and Biriyani excellent. The venue itself was lovely and the staff quick and attentive. I wanted it to be brilliant overall but the food didn’t do it justice this time around, especially not given the price. Would I go back, perhaps in a year to see if things have improved. My advice to management, trust that the palette of your customers can handle the taste of authentic Indian food, the Kerala fish curry could be so much better if you were bolder. Given the professionalism on show and the brilliance of the lamb biriyani I am sure they can and will improve.
Good food and attentive staff. I did want to have the candle lit on my table but apparently not yesterday?! I don’t know how the day of the week should make a difference. The candles smelt lovely when lit the last time I went. Took my friend for a retirement dinner and wanted her to have the same experience as I did last weekend . Lovely environment and will definitely return and recommend it again.
Great evening spent at Chokha with friends. Food was delicious and service was very good and friendly. Restaurant has a very good ambience. Will look forward to our next visit.
Fabulous food, service and decor. West end quality and service. A little quiet for Sunday lunch so where was everybody? Do they not know about this local gem?! Lunch menu very good value. Thank you will see you again!
