Welcome to Kinaara, London’s newest award-winning Indian fine-dining sensation. Since its opening in November 2022, Kinaara has quickly ascended to culinary stardom, earning 2 AA rosettes for Culinary Excellence twice and ranking among the Top 5 Restaurants in London on TripAdvisor. This rapid rise is a testament to Kinaara’s dedication to delivering an unparalleled dining experience.
Inspiration Behind the Name
Kinaara, meaning “edge” or “riverbank” in Hindi, fittingly overlooks the majestic River Thames and Canary Wharf, offering diners not just a meal, but a visual feast. Its location, along with its stylish gold and purple hues, sets the perfect stage for everything from business dinners to romantic evenings in the city.
Festive Celebrations at Kinaara
This Christmas season, Kinaara transforms into a festive wonderland. The Christmas Day Buffet Brunch is a luxurious affair, complete with a sushi station, carving roast station, and an array of seafood. Not to mention the live music and a surprise visit from Santa Claus! For dinner, the 5-course Christmas Day Dinner narrates a story of India’s rich flavors and traditions, while the 7-course New Year’s Eve Dinner Menu is a symphony of taste and presentation, perfect for ringing in the New Year.
Pre-Show Menus for a Perfect Evening
For theater enthusiasts, Kinaara’s 3-course Pre-Show Menu at £55 is an ideal start to an evening. Those with a bit more time can indulge in the same menu plus a refreshing cocktail at the Eighteen Sky Bar for £75. Available exclusively from 5:00 pm-7:00 pm, Tuesday-Saturday, these menus offer a seamless transition to The O2 events, thanks to the direct corridor from the InterContinental London – The O2.
Private Dining: An Exclusive Experience
Kinaara’s private dining room, accommodating up to 24 guests, offers an intimate setting for both personal and corporate gatherings. It’s an exclusive opportunity to enjoy the enchanting flavors of India in a more secluded and personalized environment.
The Culinary Mastermind: Chef Imammudin Khan
At the helm of Kinaara’s kitchen is Head Chef Imammudin Khan, a culinary virtuoso with a rich background across India and London. Chef Khan’s stints at the Radisson in New Delhi, Taj Hotels, and The Cinnamon Soho Restaurant and Bar in London, where he co-authored ‘The Curry – Classic and Contemporary’, have shaped his imaginative and creative flair. His dishes not only tantalize the taste buds but also tell a story of India’s diverse culinary landscape.
