Asma Khan's Darjeeling Express finds ‘permanent home'

Chef Asma Khan has confirmed that her restaurant, Darjeeling Express, has a "permanent home" that will be revealed "soon".

She has been operating Darjeeling Express as a pop-up – what she called a "temporary home" – in the Pembroke gastropub in London's South Kensington since 24 August.

It comes after she made the announcement in March that the 120-cover Darjeeling Express in London's Covent Garden would move to a venue that will allow her to "show off" her all female team.

She had taken on the former Carluccio's site in Seven Dials in 2020, following the initial launch of Darjeeling Express in Kingly Court in the West End's Carnaby Street in 2017.

Sharing the news on Instagram about the soon-to-be revealed venue, Khan said: "Signed Sealed & Delivered – the incredible duo Bharat & Josh of RWK Goodman worked tirelessly to get the lease done – also grateful to the landlord's legal team who tried to get things done quickly.

To the great unnamed person who held my hand throughout & read out passages to me on the phone as he knew I would not read. Today is the beginning of a beautiful journey - @darjeelingldn has a new home- and now it's official!"

She also tweeted: "YES! We have a permanent home … coming soon."
