Dalchini, London's pioneering restaurant serving Hakka Chinese cuisine, is simple yet smart. Indians and travellers to the subcontinent are familiar with this cuisine. To most it is comfort food when they miss India. The Hakka restaurant cuisine is a wonderful marriage of oriental techniques with Indian ingredients.
Hakka means 'Guest People' as this style of cooking was developed by Chinese settlers in India, merging Oriental styles of cooking with Indian ingredients. Nothing personifies this marriage more than the proprietor, Veronica Sarkhel - who is of Chinese origin but born and raised in Bombay.
Dalchini's chefs have trained in many famous Chinese Restaurants in India. The menu is put together by Veronica, whose family business in India is Hakka Chinese restaurants. Welcome to Dalchini and enjoy India's most popular "eating out cuisine".
