Twice Michelin starred chef Atul Kochhar will officially open his second Marlow restaurant on July 10 - but initially only for takeaway.

Vaasu, at 2 Chapel Street, will replace the former Italian restaurant Villa D’Este, which closed its doors after 33 years in September.

Atul’s new restaurant will be able to cover 80 people when it can eventually open to guests, but will initially offer takeaway and home delivery.

The menu will showcase north Indian cuisine and will include dishes like Jhinga Tawa Masala (prawns pan fried with ajwain, onions and peppers), chicken including Nawabi Murg Korma (a tikka dish with a cashew-cardamom sauce), and lamb such as Lasooni Saag Gosht.

Atul Kochhar commented: “The states across India offer a bounty of beautiful flavours, aromas and spices – from places where the tandoor oven and tawa griddle are kitchen essentials. Our new restaurant Vaasu brings all of this inspiration together, celebrating the life and culture of India through a menu of magnificent dishes.

"We will give guests the opportunity to experience charming Indian cuisine in their own homes and to take-away until we can open this new casual and quirky setting.”

Working in partnership with design practice Dynargh Design, once open at a later date, the restaurant interiors will invite visitors to immerse themselves in the rich landscapes, traditions and architecture of northern India.

"We are working together to ensure that every little detail is considered in order to create something very exciting for the town.

"The design of Vaasu has been inspired by the rich landscape and the lush green colours of Northern India, creating a calm oasis that fully immerses the guests.”
