Good Vegetarian Options
Chokhi Dhani London showcases the fine food, vibrant atmosphere and exceptional service that entrances all who visit its venues in Rajasthan – but with a contemporary twist.
As well as highlighting dishes from this ancient princely state, with its widely revered royal cuisine, the restaurant features dishes from across the subcontinent, whose textures and flavours ensure an immersive and multi-sensory experience.
On the ground floor diners can enjoy a street food concept, where the chilled mood counter balances the more regal ambience upstairs.
Chokhi Dhani also celebrates local culture through its collection of bespoke, handcrafted artworks, spearheaded by an awe-inspiring life-size bronze elephant.
With an aspiration to serve not merely food, but culinary art that pleases the taste buds and touches the soul, Chokhi Dhani changes the way we view Indian food.

Private Dining

Luxurious and full of character, with its intricate carvings, original artwork and chandeliers, the private dining room provides an intimate space in which to dine. The elegant polished table seats up to 14, whilst the room can also accommodate up to 30 guests for a cocktail and canapé reception.

It was a great experience.The decor and ambience was very authentic.The service of the food was very quick.The person who served us was wonderful.He helped us place our order by guiding us as the thaali that we chose was very filling.Overall, the experience was great and closest to Rajasthani cuisine.

Staff is friendly and polite. Food was ok too but we were bit disappointed with the ambience/sitting arrangement in this visit.
Last time we were seated on the upper floor which has lovely ambience but sadly they have moved their main dining section to the lower floor which has a very basic and casual ambience and furniture, which fails to give a fine dine experience. To add to the disappointment, all live performances have been discontinued too.

Lovely decor and ambience.
We enjoyed sitting comfortably, admiring all of the details in the place.
The food was just a little bit above average considering the options of Indian restaurants in London.
Overall a pleasant evening dinner.

nice decor, ambience, location . food quality was nice. taste was ok too. we went for a thali. we were expecting it to be not a "cheap" dining place, as it is supposed to be "fine dining"( what it means is that portion sizes are miniature, and there's mint leaf stuck on that miniature food portion). anyway, found that it is definately not "value for money", and the service is just passable. a bit of an arrogant/abrupt attitude from one of the waiters taking our order..i was quite surprised at the cockiness. I think a 3 star rating-is being generous.

Good Rajasthani (regional Indian) food with plenty of vegetarian options. Thali is definitely worth a try.

The restaurant itself is lovely. Beautiful decor and a great feel. The food is very average and not what you would expect of a restaurant of this standard. We ordered three very different starters but all had the same chick pea base and were not unique. The mains were also average.

I went here for a meal for my Birthday. The decor is absolutely stunning. Everything looks immaculate, even the restroom looked amazing. Service was spot on, Andrea did an amazing job! He was very knowledgeable of the menu with the occasional banter in between, which is always a plus in my book. Some members of my party complained that the food lacked punch, it was a little bland for some. I personally enjoyed the food although I thought the spinach with my paneer was very rich. Still tasty nonetheless. I would definitely come back here again.

The decor was outstanding, service was not up to par. They really need to employ better trained staff that have some charisma and care for their customers. They seemed to be robotic- going through the motions. We ordered the Rajasthani maharaja thali and had a certain level of expectation about the authenticity given that this joint is run by the same family that founded the original choukh ki dhani in Jaipur which we have experienced. The waiteress did'nt bother to explain or introduce the various dishes on the plate which was untraditional for the thali experience. The food was at best mediocre for the high price tag. It didn't come with a customary sweet dish like malpua which we received in Jaipur and other Rajasthani thali restaurant in India. Nor did it come with a drink. For two thalis and two lassis and a bottle of water we paid almost a whopping £100 bill. On the plus side, they have made a lot of effort on the decor and glitz factor with live musicians and performers. Alas, more effort on the food would have been be a better idea. As they say all that glitters is not gold... we sadly won't be coming back in a hurry.

I love the decor and the feel of this place. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The rabbit dish was amazing and the mocktails were really refreshing. All of the dishes were very good and I am looking forward to eating there again. Service was well-timed and friendly, everything was affordable."

Wonderful and different, not your typical Indian restaurant. The chef is clearly at the top of his game. Everything was moist, flavourful with perfect spice. The wine list is good, too. I highly recommend.

Booked for an anniversary, so we're expecting a bit more pomp and circumstance, but all we were given was an additional kulfi piece for our dessert.
This aside, the food was great. The Baingan Bhartha, was very different and tasted smoky, with a lemon flavour. Something not usually associated with that dish. The difference in papad size was a welcomed change too. A variety of smaller crackers than the large ones. Also, the portion size for the food was more than enough for us to finish it all. Typically there is too much or too little. My dad, who had the lamb bhuna adrak, finished it all without fuss. Stomach's were very much full.
The live musicians made the ambience of the evening very special. The decor provided more character to the restaurant. I would recommend going here for a dinner but just remember that it does cost a pretty penny. We ordered papad, mains, dessert and wine for c. £220.

Nice decor and ambiance. However not authentic taste. Baigan bharta was too salty. Gatta curry had undercooked Gatta and watery gravy. Not real value for money.

Excellent service and food. Best ever Indian Rajasthani cuisine I had outside India.
Cherry on top is that they kept salt level low so good for heart.
I had non-veg Thali, that contains multiple items in single plate. I’m unable to say which dish was best cause everything was out of the world.
Even though we reached late but service was best ever I received in any restaurant in London so far.
Great food excellent service and highly recommend for fine dining

Dined here for the 2nd time.

Cocktails are imaginative and to die for.

Food was excellent went for Jumbo prawns, chicken Karahi & daal makhani (black lentil daal).

Food was once again spot on. It feels like it is made with real love.

Service was slightly erratic, over keen to take our order from within 2 minutes of sitting down, didn’t bode well for a relaxing dinner when it seemed like there was a rush to get food out despite it not being busy that evening, turned away serving staff several times so we could enjoy our cocktails before starting our meal.
Food was average, £7 for chilli fries starter seemed excessive. Prawn starter was lacked any flavour, which was disappointing.

Brilliant food, atmosphere and value.

Restaurant was quiet but then again, it was a Sunday evening.

Staff very attentive and were willing to help - i.e when one on my guests wanted extra sauce.
