Colonel Saab to open second London restaurant

Restaurateur Roop Partap Choudhary has announced plans to open his second Colonel Saab restaurant close to London's Trafalgar Square in November.

Choudhary, who is also the executive director of the Jewel Group of Hotels and managing director of Hotel Noor Mahal in Karnal, launched the Indian restaurant concept in London's Holborn in 2021.

It has been dubbed a "love letter" to his family and India, with the name Colonel Saab originating from his father, Colonel Manbeer, who served in the Indian army.

The second outpost will take over the former Les Deux Salons restaurnt site on William IV Street and offer a bar, lounge, mezzanine and dining area, as well as two private dining rooms.

Executive chef Sohan Bhandari will serve a selection of nostalgic dishes with a British and Indian twist, such as the Sunday lamb curry; the Falahari curry kofta; the Rasmalai milk cake in cardamom cream; and the Bengali, Mishti Doi cheesecake in jaggery syrup.

Choudhary said: "We opened Colonel Saab two years ago to celebrate India's diverse cultures and introduce the capital to the authentic flavours and textures, which are lovingly prepared at homes, street markets and royal kitchens across India.

"We are humbled that our Holborn restaurant was welcomed so enthusiastically by the capital, that we are now able to open a second Colonel Saab, near Trafalgar Square."
