Kahani, The Restaurant Set To Be The Talk Of Chelsea

Chelsea is set to get a new restaurant this month, Kahani, from chef Peter Joseph. Having been the executive chef at Tamarind for ten years where he helped the restaurant maintain its Michelin star, Peter is now venturing out on his own with his first solo venture and he’s secured a rather nice spot in Chelsea to start.
