our story

Exclusively to Mayfair Atul Kochhar’s latest restaurant

Kanishka in the heart of Mayfair focusses on the unexplored cuisine from seven sisters of India - the North East which are - Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura.
It has a food culture that is as vibrant as its heritage and as beautiful as its people. From lanes packed with humble carts serving speciality dishes, to rows of eateries that overflow onto roads, the streets of Northeast India are a gastronomic kaleidoscope. The Northeast region offers a mixed culture of Hinduism, Christianity, Islam and Buddhism which clearly reflects in the cuisine. Sumptuous Northeast dishes come with a combination of humble approach and complex melange of flavours. There is less use of spices and oil as compared to rest of India. Cooking methods like steaming, boiling, grilling, curing and preserving are commonly used. Rice is a staple food and chilli is the hero ingredient, in fact, one of the hottest chillies in the world comes from this part. Northeast cuisine is also hugely influenced by the bordering countries of China, Nepal, Myanmar and Bangladesh, therefore, use of soy sauce, mustard oil, bamboo shoot, fermented vegetables and pickled fish is common.
