Kalpana means creativity and imagination in Sanskrit – an appropriate name for this Wolverhampton Indian restaurant and cocktail bar tucked down Fold Street, just off Salop Street close to the town centre. Founded by a globe-trotting restaurateur who recognised the burgeoning dining scene in the Midlands as one of the most vibrant in the world, Kalpana is an ambitious venue through and through, and has quickly garnered awards for its fantastic selection of drinks since opening in late 2015.
Food was really good. Taste really nice and hot. Price is good as well. Only problem was speed of service. However the food was worth the wait. The kitchen is open so you seen the chef cook the food
Food amazing but the aircon needs to be turned off and the heating turned up as it was cold and a couple of diners put their coats on.
This was a simply stunning meal. The staff we're excellent, being attentive without being overbearing. The food was easily the best Indian food we have ever had. Even the dips for the poppadoms were gorgeous. Fans of curries should definitely go here.
Pushed to the limit of his culinary skills by Kalpana’s proprietor, a man who chose Wolverhampton over all other global cities to found his Indian restaurant and cocktail bar, the head chef at Kalpana’s city centre premises has laboured long to curate an eclectic menu that does the impossible: fusing contemporary, traditional, and original ideas to create specifically Indian cuisine using global cooking techniques. This juggling act takes place down Fold Street – be sure to book to get a front row seat.
Start your creative culinary adventure with Kalpana’s tandoori selection, a platter of your favourite chicken tikka, seekh kebabs and lamb chops. For the main event, the chef’s special comes highly recommended: Indian-style braised lamb shank cooked in exotic spices and served with jeera onion pulao rice. Wolverhampton’s vegetarian South Asian food fans will love the gourmet nazuk malai kofta, stuffed with nuts and saffron and simmered in a rich and creamy tomato-based gravy. Don’t forget to call upon Kalpana’s extensive wine list – hard to beat at any other city centre restaurant – that is designed not only to introduce you to the world’s vineyards, but to perfectly complement your meal.
