One of India’s best known celebrity chefs, Sanjeev Kapoor, has opened his first UK restaurant, Yellow Chilli, in Wembley. The business is now fully up and running after the lifting of Covid restrictions and is earning rave reviews.
Chef Kapoor has his own TV channel in India, has published more than 200 cookery books and has around 80 restaurants around the world, including many operating under the Yellow Chilli brand. While the man himself will only visit the Wembley restaurant “as and when time and opportunity permits” he has assembled a team of experienced chefs who have been associated with him for a long time to deliver his vision and a menu that features dishes from across the subcontinent.
The new restaurant was open for a few weeks in 2020 before lockdown measures were enforced and survived by offering takeaways. It now hopes that the period of uncertainty is over and it will be able to fully make its mark on London’s culinary scene.
