TPH of Chelsea to close

Chef Yogesh Datta (pictured) has announced the closure of Indian restaurant TPH of Chelsea after 17 years of trading.

The restaurant, which operated as the Painted Heron until late 2017, launched on Cheyne Walk in Chelsea in 2002 and quickly gained a reputation for its contemporary approach to authentic recipes.

A review that appeared in the Evening Standard in the restaurant’s year of launch lauded Datta’s ability to “modernise an Indian list [of dishes] without losing touch with its roots”.

Following its rebrand, TPH of Chelsea introduced a new menu that focused on sustainability and healthy eating through a new range of plant-based and dairy-free dishes.

The building will now be brought down and redeveloped, while owner and head chef Datta is expected to focus on his City restaurant Bangalore Express.

He said: “It’s been the most rewarding part of my long food journey. I like to think TPH of Chelsea broke boundaries and was a source of inspiration for many Indian restaurants across the country.”
