Michelin Bib Gourmand Indian restaurant Pahli Hill  launches its new ‘Chef’s Counter’ experience on Friday 7th July.

Hosted by head chef and Great British Menu finalist Avi Shashidhara, two to three guests will be seated at the kitchen pass for the evening, where they will discuss their food likes and dislikes with Avi who will then curate a bespoke seven course menu for both diners. 

Channelling Pahli Hill’s menu of regional Indian plates, brought straight from the home kitchens of Mumbai, the Chef’s Counter will give guests the opportunity to sample an array of flavours and ingredients selected to match their tastes.

Dishes will salute Avi’s classical training and take inspiration from his upbringing in Bangalore.  Example dishes could include: MANGALORE BUN & SCOTTISH CRAB SUKKHA, Fennel seeds, Degghi chilli & ginger; CHARGRILLED LAMB CUTLETS, Dried rose petals, stone flower, crispy curry leaves & mint; or HOMESTYLE FISH CURRY, Wild Halibut, mussels, tomato, green mango, tamarind & coconut. 

The Chef’s Counter at Pahli Hill will take place weekly on Fridays and Saturdays from 7th July. The experience will be open for two to three guests and will offer two sittings from 6-8.30pm and 8.45pm – close. The experience will be priced at £100 per person for seven courses and a cocktail on arrival.

There will also be the option to add wine pairings at an additional cost. To book, guests should follow the link here. The experience can also be booked on other days of the week by contacting Pahli Hill directly.
