First-time restaurateurs to open Shobha's Rasoi in Harrow

First-time restaurateurs Harish and Shobha Panchal are set to open a fine-dining restaurant in Harrow, north west London, in August called Shobha's Rasoi.

Named after one half of the duo, Rasoi denotes ‘kitchen' in Hindi.

The modern neighbourhood venue will offer refined pan-Indian dishes with a strong East African influence, particularly from Tanzania and Kenya.

Occupying the site of what used to be an office, the 42-cover restaurant is being fitted out at the moment.

The pair have been assisted in the project by hospitality journalist turned consultant Humayun Hussain.

Typical dishes include chicken samosas, vegetable pakoras, surti jhinga (prawns), jeera chicken (chicken with cumin), and boozi bafu (on the bone spring lamb chops). Sides may include karela (bitter gourd) and bhindi suka shaak (okra).
