Tandoor Grill & Mixology
In late 2013 Rohit Sachdev, managing director of Soho Hospitality reassembled the team responsible for Above Eleven to embark upon a new project. As an Indian, he’s always had a passion for the indigenous food of home and was inspired to inject a new energy into Indian dining. The Soho Hospitality team set out to focus on an area of the Indian restaurant menu that rarely gets much emphasis while at the same time reinvigorating and enhancing the entire experience.
Rohit and his team dared to steer away from the norm, putting the emphasis on ‘fun’ dining, rather than ‘fine’ dining; using the same DNA that gives Above Eleven its buzz to create a unique, new Indian dining experience that’s visceral, sensual and exciting.
Soho Hospitality proudly presents Charcoal, where delicious kebabs are suffused with all the authentic aromas and secrets of traditional tandoori cooking, delivered in a sleek, modern, vibrant and social environment.
It’s an intoxicating combination of centuries old recipes with creative mixology and industrial décor; the colours, fragrances, sights and sounds converge to produce a memorable new encounter with historic cuisine.
From India’s Northwestern frontier, Charcoal brings classic cuisine to the modern metropolis. Here, the kebabs are king. Pulled off the appetizers menu and brought centre stage, these skewers of tender meat, vegetables and paneer are cooked to perfection in authentic clay ovens. Experience these delicious treasures from the wild borders of Pakistan and Afghanistan, flavoured with exotic marinades and fragrant rubs and grilled with wisdom and passion. For a true dynastic feast, Charcoal has handpicked delicacies from the Royal house of Mughals including the infamous Dum Ki Raan, a whole leg of succulent slow-cooked lamb. Be enchanted by the mystery and history, flavours and aromas of a forgotten cuisine and dig in with your hands.
Shifting the paradigm of the usual accompaniments to Indian food, Charcoal introduces a brand new drinks concept. Rohit scoured the back alleys and antique shops of Old Delhi to find unique and unusual vessels to present Charcoal’s cocktails, which in turn beautifully complement the kebabs. Explore the list of masterfully crafted, uniquely presented creations and experience an exquisite taste sensation with kebab-cocktails pairings, designed to perfectly enhance and balance one another.
