The Edible Scent - 6th Edition

Why Join the Table?

Legendary 7 course dinner inspired by the tradition of Perfume making, by a Michelin-trained chef and his wife in their home. Grub Club's highest rated experience & one of London's coolest supperclubs according to Time Out

"Odors have a power of persuasion stronger than that of words, appearances, emotions, or will. The persuasive power of an odor cannot be fended off, it enters into us like breath in our lungs, it fills us up, imbues us totally. There is no remedy for it" - Patrick Suskind, PERFUME.

Join us for the UK's only edible perfume dinner - we've swapped traditional spices for ingredients such as Bergamot, Tobacco, Frankincense, Patchouli & Oud to create a multi-sensory experience that is all about perfumes/colognes and how the ingredients we have all smelt...

In a Nutshell

One of London's coolest supperclubs, as mentioned in Time Out by a husband and wife team in their home. They're also Grub Club's top rated experience!

'That Hungry Chef', Pratap Chahal, has cooked at Gordon Ramsay at Claridge’s, Chez Bruce, Cinnamon Club and Galvin Bistrot, amongst others. He is accompanied by his wife, Nikhat previously a child psychologist, who looks after Front of House.

His food is inspired by his travels around the world, life in London and Indian heritage.

The Whole Hog

There’s nothing more comforting than going out for dinner and feeling like it’s your own private party. At chez Hungry Chef, the atmosphere is exactly that!

Diners end up staying for hours, chatting away over several glasses of wine, in a dreamy food coma. Conversations flutter from travel, food, antique furniture and art, to life in London and the infamous British weather.

Also, there’s usually a last minute surprise or two thrown in by Pratap and his wife.



Having won critical acclaim from Fay Maschler and Guy Diamond for his cooking at Greenberry Café, Pratap also spent 18 months travelling around the world, eating and drinking his way through the best restaurants, cafes and markets.



Based around the cuisine of the Indian subcontinent, the dinners take inspiration from the royal houses of India, Pratap’s world travels and great British seasonal produce.

Ideal for meeting new people or partying with old friends, in the surrounds of a gorgeous Islington home, this Grub Club is sure to have you return.

The menu changes monthly, giving you the opportunity to sample Pratap’s vast repertoire of food and even get a chance to improve your food knowledge.

Really great evening with unique tasty food. We loved the spicy fried yoghurt dish and all the punchy Spring flavours. A treat for all the senses in a beautiful house with warm hospitality.

Thank you for a lovely evening

amazing host, excellent food and drinks - perfect combination for such a wonderful night! Thank you chef, no wonder you have so many good reviews- will be back

What a fantastic evening, the amount of care and dedication invested in this event by Pratap and Niks is amazing, everything from the food to the atmosphere down to the tiniest details is incredible. The food was like nothing else I have had before, Pratap effortlessly blends flavours creating a wonderful surprise with each mouthful. What makes this event though is the attention to detail, every aspect of it has been expertly thought out. It's really engaging throughout and Pratap keeps you guessing with each course. Honestly could not recommend this enough, particularly when Pratap and Niks are such welcoming and warm hosts. Will definitely attend again.

We had an absolutely wonderful time. The evening was filled with attention to detail, culinary delights, and an incredible feel-good atmosphere. The dishes were extremely tasty and beautifully presented, showcasing great technique and flavours and the hosts were the most welcoming one can imagine - thanks also for catering for specific dietary requirements without making any sacrifices to the presentation or the overall dinner experience! I can highly recommend - we surely will be back to experience another one!

What an incredible evening! Pratap and Nikhat were friendly, fun exceptional hosts - they made us feel immediately welcome within their home while also allowing us the freedom to celebrate our friend's birthday with as much laughter (and noise) as we wanted! The food was delicious, surprising and beautifully presented. It really felt like we were dining in Wonderland.

Love. love. love. Pratap put on amazing evening for me and my friends for my 30th. They couldnt have been nicer, the food and the experience was amazing and i am still hearing about it three days later. thanks so much guys! cant wait for the next one !

It was indeed a magical experience and entirely surpassed all expectations. The food was divine, the atmosphere was wonderful, the ambience beautiful and Pratap and Nikath could not have been more welcoming. Just as for Alice, this experience opened up a whole new world to us. With heartfelt thanks to Nikath and Pratap for sharing their magic with us.

Delicious food and great hosts! A fun night was had by all!

I had the most wonderful time here. Nikhat & Pratap are the warmest people, from the beginning you are made to feel so welcome. The level of detail and care throughout the evening is so well thought out; from scents, sounds, ambience and all the little decorative details, it is a sensory experience and the food elevates it to the next level. The meal obviously is the central part of the evening and is incredible. I'll be raving about this for a long time to come!

Absolutely amazing! The couple were so incredible, great hosts and their home was so perfect! A great night and the good was delicious. Thank you!

Another tour de force from Pratap and Nikhat delivering a superbly orchestrated dining event of the highest standards. Great stuff.

Absolutely excellent from start to finish. A perfect score for a perfect evening. Thank you.

My third dinner at That Hungry Chef was "Alice in Wonderland" and it was brilliant! There was a five star food, a closed-eyes fragrance experience, a hilarious moment with balloons, a white (almost Cheshire) cat, and the warmest atmosphere which created friends out of strangers somewhere between the drink-me aperitif and the Mad hatter pudding. I would and will do it again!

Pratap is not only a brilliant chef, he is a master of flavour, and together with Nikhat, who brings sparkle and life with her bubbly personality, an evening at That Hungry Chef leaves you inspired, both body and soul.

Our family is visiting from Durham, North Carolina, USA. We were so excited to find out about this unique experience. It exceeded our wildest hopes. Amazing, flavorful, and thoughtful food. Great concept and overall experience. Wonderful conversation with a fun table of other food lovers. The hosts were absolutely charming and genuine.

Our first Grub Club event- Fantastic evening - amazing food - wonderful hosts - looking forward to joining them at the next event.

Amazing evening We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and thought the food and imagination was out of this world Amazing hosts too, We will be back

Great food, awesome concept and well executed. Pratap and his wife couldn't be more inviting and lovely.

Really enjoyed the evening, the hosts were excellent and food beautifully presented. I would definitely recommend.

Wonderful and knowledgable hosts, a great experience overall!

An absolutely outstanding evening, from the exquisite food, to the level of care that went into every single detail. Loved every single minute of it. Thank you!

Incredibly fascinating, one-off-a-kind journey into the beauty of fragrances and exquisite food. Words cannot do justice - this is simply something that has to be experienced!

Another fantastic meal. The food never disappoints and Pratap always manages to create an amazing feast with so many unexpected but delicious flavours. The dessert was a very special treat. I highly recommend this supper club.

Excellent atmosphere, theme and the best dessert I have ever had in London. Beautiful.

We have been a number of times at That Hungry Chef's supper club and the only issue is that we wished he offered more events. We need more events, more great food, more great entertainment, more amazing atmosphere. The theme was very relevant, and Pratap made the evening fun and humorous. It also resonated with us that a portion of profits will go to Doctors Without Border. Without a doubt Pratap's cooks some of the best food in the supper club scene in London, but his events are so much more than food... Not to be missed!

Overall, a WONDERFUL evening! Great hosting, lovely space, lovely other guests and AMAZING food. Above all, the fact that Pratap created the evening and aimed it at World Unity as well as supporting Medecins sans Frontieres - it couldn't have been better!! Brilliant!!!

Despite the best efforts of London Underground to prevent us getting to Pratap's lovely home, we made it and had a lovely evening. The food flavours and combinations were amazing and Pratap once again delivered a memorable dinner.

A lovely evening with fabulous and unique food

Dinners cooked by Pratap are always a real treat. Fantastic atmosphere! Caring, well thought through and beautifully arranged evening. I'm coming back again and again

Another amazing night with the warmest hosts known to mankind. Super food and such a fun, uplifting atmosphere. My cool-crush on you keeps reaching new heights

Really enjoyable and new flavours, Pratap and Nikhat are lovely hosts too.

The hosts were welcoming and so well informed about food and the history of scent. The setting is comfortable and attractive. The food was exquisite: delicious and surprising. Couldn't recommend this more!

We always have an amazing time at these events, the food is always incredible, Pratap and Nikhat are wonderful hosts, so passionate about their food and the stories behind it and they always make you feel so so welcome. I would strongly recommend!

Really enjoyed the evening, loved the hosts, everyone there, the stories and the

Once again a really lovely evening with some interesting and fantastic tasting dishes. Pratap and Nikhat are wonderful hosts and it is a real pleasure to be invited into their home. The little touches like the welcoming cocktail and the goodie bags to take home all make the evening that much more special. Can't wait for our next visit.

Unique and delicious dishes, hospitable hosts and very nice home and ambiance!

The night started with a welcome cocktail in a magical and immaculate garden and ended up at a themed dinner table. The food and setting were wonderful and the evening was full of excitement with a few twists thrown in by hosts Pratap & Nikhat for good measure. We have been to a number of Hungry Chef events now and they never fail to impress and surprise me. Well done guys for yet another truly awesome evening.

I thought the effort these guys went to was second to none. Set in a beautiful & cosy North London home with such welcoming hosts. The dishes presented on the night were absolutely flawless and a sensation to our senses. Each course built up a further level of anticipation & excitement and the aroma combined with the taste was wonderful. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

Really enjoyed our Dog's Dinner experience. The food was delicious and our rather difficult dietary requirements were well-met. Dolly, our pug seemed to really enjoy her food and would have totally gorged herself if I had let her! It was her birthday and everyone made a fuss of her, which she loved! It was a nice touch to have the dog-behaviourist give a talk at the beginning and be on hand throughout the afternoon to answer questions. Thoroughly enjoyable afternoon and I would definitely attend again!

It was great, would definitely go again

I took my girlfriend as part of her Christmas present this year it was our first public Grub Club event and we were not disappointed. The food was incredible and the stories really brought the evening to life. Pratap and Nikhat are wonderful hosts and we will certainly plan to assent another one next year.

Myself and three friends had a splendid evening with the Hungry Chef and his charming wife. We were presented with lovely food and were entertained royally by our hosts.

A delight, as usual!

Pratap and Nikhat are great hosts and Pratap creates beautiful food. The lamb curry and saffron kulfi were the highlights for me. Always a pleasure attending their supperclubs.

Brilliant night as always

At £55 with no alcohol and with a name like "Maharajah" Christmas - I was expecting a feast and a lot more glitz and fanfare. At £55 (no alcohol) I could have better experience at an upmarket restaurant, therefore felt disappointed. Sorry for the negative review would prefered to have given it better.

A really lovely evening with superb food especially the Kulfi. The hosts were friendly, charming and very funny. An excellent way to spend a Friday evening.

This was an magical experience. The table was enchanting, laid beautifully for the Christmas feast, the atmosphere was warm and friendly and the food sublime! Pratap and Nikhat are the ultimate hosts. Thank you so much for a wonderful evening.

Delicious and interesting food and wonderful, welcoming hosts. A great evening overall!

Anyone who has not yet been to this is missing out. This is Royal Indian food with flavours and spicing as never tasted before. Thank you to Pratap and Nikhat for all the hospitality. A wonderful evening, as ever.

Yet again, I'm surprised, delighted and entertained at this beautiful home. Telling stories and revisiting history through culinary experiences is That Hungry Chef's incredible gift to us. We get transformed with unique tastes and aromas. I simply can't get enough!

Lovely evening with great food, delightful stories and charming hosts.

.

You guys were amazing!the food the company the flat !every thing was very good.thank you very much .we would love to come over again!!Olesya and Irit:) very best☆☆☆☆☆

We got to experience some of the most beautiful food (THAT desert!), together with the most wonderful people around a beautiful table. Meticulous preparation and hosting by Pratap and Niks, which created a warmth and vibe that I wouldn't have wanted to spend Thursday evening in any other place. Thank you.

Stunning, inventive, delicious food in great company in a gorgeous setting. That Hungry Chef is an expert innovator - and a genius. We were delighted,

Flawless evening by the culinary master and his most gorgeous wife. How can 2 people be so talented, charming, warm, hospitable and fun?! Thank you

Best supper club ever. The food was sublime, the company delightful and the hosts warm, gracious and hilarious! Thanks Pratap & Nix for a wonderful midweek treat!

Amazing as always.

A wonderful evening hosted by the perfect couple iin their beautiful stylish home, the food was delicious !!!

The best first supper club I could wish for! Food literally out of this world.

Great food, lovely hosting and an excellent sociable experience meeting new people. The evening was fantastic all round which means I highly recommend this Grub Club to you! Thank you from Sarah and Nick.

That Hungry Chef really has the magic touch! Superb evening. This must be my 5th Hungry Chef grub club and I can never get enough of them. Pratap and Niks are the most amazing duo, with one sensational chef and one host who makes your heart melt. Thank you for another magical night!

Brilliant setup & evening. Food was awesome & the musical accompaniments & blindfolded adventures with dessert was fabulous. Would totally do it again. And I'd probably want to organise my own do like this! Lovely.

All our senses were fully stimulated at Adah's immersive birthday dinner. Pratap & Nikhat at That Hungry Chef were gracious hosts and the food excellent. I was easy to see the time, energy and love they poured into Adah's event. I would use them in a heart beat.

Magical evening X x

We had a memorable evening giving our taste buds an unexpected and enjoyable experience! One we’ll share and tell about to many of our friends! I really appreciated the goodie bag especially the green/coconut relish!

Hi, had a great time. Perfumed food can be a tricky thing, highly fragrant ingredients can play havoc with one's senses. An Edible Scent was exquisite and tempting experience, delicate, dreamy, delightful, thank you.

What a wonderful evening. The food was so cleverly put together, tasted amazing and beautifly presented. This was our first grub club experience and had no idea how the evening would go. We were warmly greated by the most hospital hosts - thank you. Looking forward to our next visit in December.

Absolutely lovely evening with extraordinary and delicious food

My second edible scent; it did not disappoint! Pratap creates food that is nothing short of magical and stretches the imagination. Dishes were delicious and generous, and like nothing you've ever tasted. The salmon 'ceviche' was stunning - and every element on every plate plays its part. A simple bread starter is transformed with fragrant seeds and scented butter. Nikhat and Pratap are wonderful hosts, where you feel both welcome and well looked after. Pratap's vast knowledge of perfumes and their history make the evening almost educational. This event took place in their friend's stunning warehouse like home, which provided a beautiful environment for chatting with other guests. I took my mum for a 74th birthday treat and she enjoyed it immensely. I'd be delighted to recommend and look forward to the next menu!

Such a lovely night celebrating a friend's career with amazing fusion of Indian and Polynesian food. Pratap and his wife are charming hosts, their home is lovely and the stories about the dishes were interesting.

From the minute I walked I was made to feel so welcome and I'm sure it had plenty to do with the enticing smells wafting from the BBQ on what was a miraculously sunny day for the British summer. I will be dreaming of that brisket for many years to come. The fact that Pratap uses a special elderflower spray to keep the meat moist gives you an idea of the care, creativity and thought that goes into his food. I can't pronounce or spell the dessert we had, which was a kind of cross between a churro and a rum baba, toasted on the BBQ with ice cream on the side. I'm not a dessert person normally but I had to succumb to a second one and I was too slow to get my hands on a third (probably a good thing). The garden is a beautiful place: flowers running riot, a stone table and benches, a fish pond, a little pergola. It's almost magical. A wonderful place to while away the hours in excellent company with Pratap slaving over a hot grill.

A really enjoyable evening! That Hungry Chef's clever use of flavours made each dish really stand out! My favourite had to be the beautiful smoked lamb with masala potatoes - wow! Looking forward to attending his next event!!

We had a lovely evening. Food was amazing...full of flavour and the mix of different spices and scents was brilliant. Well worth the 3.5 hours drive! We will definitely be booking a space for the Christmas dinner. Thank you Laura & Adam

A lovely evening, with delicious and intriguing food!

Great food, great hosts, great company!

The bbq'd Gulab Jamuns were outstanding! 👍🏻

My first BBQ with the awesome hosts Pratap and Nix. And these guys know how to take fine dining out to their secret luscious garden. We spent 5 hours devouring gorgeously smoked brisket followed by bbq'd sweet potato and yummy coleslaw. We also had some marinated chicken which was just so incredibly tender. I cannot believe i'm saying this but I might actually prefer it to the brisket..... I also got to try some alpaca which was good but not as good as the first two. And to finish it all off we had..... smoked bbq'd gulab jamuns.... It's become a thing. It was INSANELY good! Overall an amazing day out, love the two of them. Super awesome guys. And I was also very happy to meet other amazing grub clubbers who had come back for more.

Just an overall amazing time as always!!!

Another amazing event hosted by this brilliant husband and wife team! Friendly, entertaining, kind, warm and welcoming, you always feel at home at their events and the food just keeps coming, which considering it's so delicious is a blessing!! Great people, hosting a beautiful event, frequented by interesting people, it's easily the best supper club out there!

Simply perfect..

The hosts are amazing and the food sublime! :)

We had a brilliant time at this grub club and have been raving about it to all of our friends! It was the perfect combination of fantastic food, lovely hosting and an intimate setting. You have to go down the rabbit hole! we will definitely be back.

Terrific fun. Food was creative and delicious. It was an evening of food as theatre, a delight for all the senses. Highly recommended on all levels.

This was our second time at Pratap & Nikhat's lovely home, and as it was a warm dry summer evening, we could enjoy their garden as well. Both are hospitable and interesting hosts, and this collaboration with TikiChris was just as delicious and unique as their Maharajah's Christmas. We'd return any time. And we're also going to Pratap's pop-up Olympic-inspired menu at Cinnamon Kitchen in a couple of weeks.

A fantastic evening where the only thing better than the food was the hosts and the company! A flawless evening... Highly recommend!

After 30-40 Supper Club and pop-up meals tasted, I can confidently say this one is simply best. That Hungry Chef defines the exact reasons we now prefer supper clubs to restaurants - incredibly warm welcoming to a gorgeous home and a stunning hidden garden; interesting and engaging hosts; michelin-level dinner with surprising and always new flavors, combinations, platings and themes; like-minded company of people who love food, travel and all of life's delights. We live far away and we travel the distance because its that good. Excited to see what Pratap comes up with next! And we'll be there!

Excellent food. Really different take on the typical super club fare. Attentive and friendly hosts and lovely ambience. I would definitely recommend these two.

Fabulous night! Met some lovely people. Pratap and his wife are extremely welcoming. He is an very talented chef. We will be returning. Could not recommend it more.

We took my in-laws who were visiting from overseas. It was a wonderful evening. The host was welcoming and kind, the chef was attentive and highly skilled and the setting was unique and charming. We enjoyed exploring the transport museum and making new friends at our table. We would recommend this experience to anyone and hope to dine with the Hungry Chef again.

Great night, would highly recommend! The hosts were wonderful and the food was amazing! Truely unique experience that is definitely worth attending.

another amazing dinner by That Hungry Chef. His fusion of Latin American and Indian was delicious and different. The starter alone was worth the trip, as was the dessert. Will be booking That Hungry Chef's next event!

good food as usual.

delicious food, great hosts, lovely house, nice atmosphere... what s more to say!

I had a fantastic time at That Hungry Chef's Alice in Wonderland dinner. Great food and a magical evening. I will definitely be back!

Incredible experience! Gorgeous creative meal in a warm and beautiful setting with thoughtful, surprising and funny details. This is THE Supper Club! I can't wait to come back!

Thanks for another delightful evening. This was a lot of fun. The food was amazing and we will remember that mock turtle soup for a long time. The surprise course was so much fun it made me wonder how can we laugh so hysterically without being drunk! And the decoration had Nikhat's fingerprints all over it. This is one event to repeat!

We had an amazing evening last night at Pratap and Night's beautiful home. The table looked fabulous and the food was delicious. Everyone was so relaxed as they are both such wonderful hosts. I would highly recommend it as a great night out and I will not spoil the surprises by saying too much about the meal. Just book and go! We will definitely be going again.

We were supper club virgins, especially hosted in someone's house. Not only was the food amazing, we couldn't have felt more welcome, comfortable and put at ease - which to be honest, was a concern initially. The attention to detail was incredible, but, without spoiling it for any future diners, the food was complex, interesting and an amazing combination of flavours. Just the right balance of interaction and suprises too- we were a bit worried that there may be the dreaded 'forced fun' - but the food had time to speak for itself, the information was perfect and not overwhelming. We loved the food, the hosts and the atmosphere. Thankyou for a truly wonderful evening!

Great food. Thanks again!

This was more about flogging the Independent Club and the clothes than the food and atmosphere. The dessert was amazing but I was disappointed with the main course especially as I had brought 2 friends having raved about another grub club event. They too found it average compared to how the advert read. I know Pratap has cooked some amazing food as a fellow dinner attested to. Perhaps the venue was a hindrance. To be honest it was more shabby than chic. The clothes and products were very good quality and I applaud Gregory's efforts to create a shopping experience. I cannot however recommend it as a to be repeated experience. If they choose to focus on a better venue and get a better cut of beef then perhaps I might change my mind. Overall met some nice people and Pratap was lovely and generous giving us a free goodie bag. I would try out his cooking again at another venue - may his house as I was told that's where he cooked very well. So it gets an average score from me overall.

Superb evening, great atmosphere and wonderful hosts! I would recommend it to anyone.

Food was incredible, hosts were fun and welcoming. An absolutely wonderful evening that surpassed my expectations on every level. Attention to detail...out of this world! Really was a fantastic experience. Thanks Pratap and Nik...definitely coming back soon!

Another wonderful night at Pratap and Nikhat's beautiful home! The food was again outstanding, the setting beautifully creative and the hosts warm and welcoming. Nadine & Dolph

Had the most fantastic dinner with Pratap. Food was incredible, each course was so creative but all delicious. Pratap was a wonderful host, and the themed games were a really nice touch. Also loved the Opihr Gin "Drink Me" cocktail at the beginning. Would definitely recommend and hopefully will get to go back soon!

Lovely evening. Beautifully presented food. Wonderful hosts.

Amazing evening, the food was outstanding. I don't want to ruin if for when you attend but I really recommend this. I went with my sister, but there were all sorts of dynamics around the table; couples, mother and daughter, friends, work colleagues, etc. A really great mix of people. Each course was introduced and described so elegantly. I really do not understand how the chef was able to produce this food in his kitchen, I'm sure it was so sort of magic! What a genius! I plan to go again, for his next meal idea. Also, their house was beautiful. Thank you!!!

A great setting for a foodies discussion & amazing food!

Sensational evening, wonderful location, fantastic hosts - will definitely be booking again. Highly recommend it

My first supper club and definitely not the last! We had such an amazing time. The attention to details and to the diners, the warmth of the chef and his wife and the high level of the food we ate just made it perfect. Looking forward to the next one!

subtle and inventive flavors, everything was taken care of and thought through. impeccable professionalism in a cosy and personal setting

The most delicious, beautiful and imaginative lunch and the perfect setting to discuss our food businesses in an informal and relaxed setting.

Absolutely delicious lunch made using really unique and interesting recipes. Would highly recommend

Amazing food in a beautiful location. I could find no faults at all. Perfect- thank you!

Thanks for a fantastic meal today in a lovely setting. Everything was perfect.

Great food, great ambience and lovely hosts! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will be back!

An incredible evening of stunning scents and delicious food from start to finish. I learnt loads about the spices and herbs in the dishes. Sitting with friends around Pratap and Nikhat's beautiful table was wonderful - way more intimate than being in a restaurant, but with all this stunning food and amazing smells it was a far cry from a dinner party at home. Do go!

Incredible! Truly in a class of its own. The hosts are warm, funny, accommodating and interesting. The food is not just incredibly tasty and beautifully presented, but also interesting, educational and absolutely like nothing you've tasted before (and I've been eating around the world for a few decades now). Not to be missed!

What a delightful evening! Cinnamon-leaf spiced champagne through to neroli notes at dessert. Utterly exquisite. Pratap and Nikhat were amazing hosts. Can't recommend enough.

I have now been to 2 of That Hungry Chef's Perfume grub clubs, each with different scents and ingredients. And both times I was blown away. I eat out A LOT and find it hard to be impressed nowadays: rarely do I find a combination of innovation and quality, but That Hungry Chef marries both to perfection, leaving everyone on a high for days after. Truly mindblowing.

Exceptional food, in a lovely space with a wonderful host. The attention to detail was really impressive. I would definitely recommend and book again!

An exceptional dinner in every sense of the word. Pratap is an exceptional, innovative chef and Nikhat is a tremendous host. It was an unforgettable evening!

This was a completely mind-blowing experience - That Hungry Chef is incredibly talented and I'm not surprised that so many of our fellow diners had attended before. We'll definitely be back. The food doesn't just taste amazing and smell great, meanwhile: it is also beautifully presented.

Fantastic food, charming hosts, highly recommended

Let the stars speak

Fantastic night. Great setting with a great group of people and lovely chef and host. And the food... it was delicious!

Incredible food, wonderful hosting, overall a phenomenal evening! Pratap and his wife are impeccable hosts and I look forward to the next supper club with them!

My first grub club so I was naturally a little nervous but Pratap and Nikhat were such lovely and welcoming hosts the evening was a great success. the food was wonderful and unexpected with a fusion of interesting flavours. I would highly recommend this experience.

I have been to lots of Grub club events...by far the Hungry Chef was my favourite. I cant fault a thing. Everything was amazing!

Fantastic food with superb hosts in a beautiful house. Supper Clubs are the foodie way forward!

We had a great night, the food was exceptional and Pratap & Nikhat were such lovely hosts. They had thought of everything and they even made a cake for us as my wife and I were celebrating our birthdays. We have been to a few grubclubs now and I'd definitely recommend trying this one!

I've been to several of Pratap's evenings now and continue to be impressed by the quality and innovative food. Every event is different, but every dish is well balanced, and often features more unusual ingrediants or flavours without straying into the bizarre. As ever, Nikhat is a genuinely lovely person, ensuring everyone feels at ease in their (gorgeous ) home. A happy repeat customer.

Lovely home, with fascinating and eclectic furniture and decorations. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming, the other guests were interesting to meet, and the food was delicious. We will come again!

Wonderful food, wonderful hosts and a wonderful evening.

I've never had better food. A delightful venue with perfect hosts, who attract charming guests. Simply wonderful.

Pratap and Nikhat were brilliant hosts, really warm and welcoming, you couldn't ask for a better experience from them. The food was delicious, really well thought out and the stories & concepts behind each dish added to the experience without being pretentious. They also had a fire- which was brilliant!- Sandy & Az

We LOVED Pratap and Nikhat - funny, gracious, personable - I feel like I could hang out with them for weeks! Their house is lovely and the atmosphere at dinner was wonderful. In particular, really enjoyed the yarns and explanations. We will definitely be back for more. Thank you, guys. See you in BVI!

This has been a fabulous experience. The hosts are lovely and you feel at home, the moment you walk through the doors. Wonderful stories about the food and the heritage and don't get me started on the food: He sure is a spice master. Tip: ask him for a little sip of their Damson Wodka.

A wonderful evening. Delicious food served by fantastic hosts!

Had a really good time, Pratap and his wife were friendly welcoming hosts and the food was excellent.

Lovely evening with delicious food as always. Many unique recipes and flavours. Really has to be experienced to be believed.

Amazing, warm and friendly cast!.. never have I experienced such a thought provoking menu, a sensory envelope!

Wonderful evening had by all - fab hosts and gorgeous food thanks to Pratap the King in the Kitchen!!! Highly recommend the experience.

This was our fourth time at That Hungry Chef's grub club and, as usual, the food was delicious and innovative - the Edible Scent dinners particularly get your taste buds going! Welcoming hosts who always ensure that you have an enjoyable evening. Highly recommended and we'll definitely be going back again.

Fantastic food with a selection of interesting wines. Very interesting how the different food notes combined over time. Highly recommended.

Wonderful food, beautiful surroundings, great company, absolutely superb hosts. The best introduction to supper clubbing!

Loved the host, house, and haute cuisine! Wonderful atmosphere, great to have the chef explain each course and a special gift at the end finished the evening perfectly.

Had a wonderful time meeting new people and trying out new food at the Aphrodisiac Dining experience - the kinky additons to the menu and setting were just fabulous! I would highly recomoend!!!!

Interesting and innovative menu, delightful company in beautiful surroundings, all in all a fantastic evening!

Fantastic evening with amazing food

Really nice evening - would definitely do it again. Thanks Hungry Chef for a great night!

We had a lovely evening with great hosts who made us feel most welcome. The atmosphere was a fun dinner party and we enjoyed the company of the other guests. The theme of aphrodisishak was amusing..none of us knew what was in store.The food was interesting and tasty too and the prairie oysters were actually really good.

A fantastic evening. The food and setting were both amazing and our hosts could not have been better. Charming, informative and welcoming. I can't wait for the next one!

Epic as usual. My favourite chef in London. Pratap and Nix are total legends.

The only reason that this evening has not rated a 5 across the board is that, as my first GrubClub outing, I have nothing to measure it against and feel like I need somewhere to go! The food was exquisite with a fantastic blend of strong and more subtle flavours across each of the sublime courses. Pratap provides a great and informative narrative to accompany each course and the attendees were all happy to share experiences of life, universe and everything. A great night out; can't wait to do it again.

The hosts are wonderful and looked after us very well, thank you.

great ambience, lovely hosts

This was my second dinner with the Hungry Chef and again it was a very enjoyable experience. Pratap is a subtle, talented and creative chef, delivering unusual and very tasty dishes. I'm sure I'll be back for a third.

Pratap and Nikhat could not have been more welcoming. It was a nice evening so we started with a drink in their spectacular garden. Each dish was well described upon presentation. Each course was delicious and full of scent (not over powering but noticeable). The main course of lamb was cooked to perfection, so tender. We went as a group of 5 and no one was disappointed.

I had a brilliant time at That Hungry Chef's grub club evening. It was my second time there and I'll definitely be going again as Pratap and Nikhat are wonderful hosts and the food is amazing!

Another amazing evening hosted by the That Hungry Chef team. This is a supper club to do again, and again, and again. Our gracious chef Pratap and his delightful wife Nikhat delivered again an amazing multi-sensory adventure. Nothing could possibly be improved and I can't wait for the Summer BBQ and future events. We will be back!!

Wonderful evening with Pratap and Nikhat. They are warm and welcoming hosts, and the menu was creative and delicious. I'm looking forward to the next meal with them.

This was my third supper club with That Hungry Chef because I always have such an amazing time, and last night was no exception! Every detail of the evening is well thought out, from the friendly introduction at the beginning of the night, a wander round the beautiful garden, gorgeous table settings, to the exquisite food! Each course is so special - and they come with wonderful stories. I was introduced to completely new tastes which I thoroughly enjoyed. I would recommend this supper club to supper club regulars and newbies alike - my friend came along with me and she was shy before we arrived but very quickly felt relaxed and also loved the experience and company. I'm already looking forward to the next one! And until then, we each recieved a lovely gift of one of That Hungry Chef's relishes to try at home!

Dining at Pratap's is always an experience for all the senses. Here, he has taken it to a new level. We feel like we have travelled through time and to exotic places by the medium of food. Pratap's meals are not to be missed. If there is someone out there who is interested in discovering a talented cook with stories to tell to match the food- please come along. It would be a travel/history/food tv programme that I would watch. In the meantime, we look forward to Pratap's next themed evening.

Pratap and Nikhat are fantastic hosts and the food is original, interesting and very, very tasty. It's not often that you get to eat truly inspired fusion food. Don't miss it!

I loved the whole evening - great food, great company and the hosts made us feel very welcome. It was s throughly enjoyable experience. Special thanks for the goodie bag - gus can't wait to tuck in :-)

Amazing food in a gorgeous and relaxing atmosphere with two wonderful hosts. Its everything you would look for in Grub Club. Join the queue and get involved!

Sensational evening all round ... my first THC dinner, defo not the last.

Pratap just keeps blowing my mind with his food. It was all superb but the lamb and the pudding were just out of this world. He and Nix are such great hosts and have such a beautiful home too.

Wow! The food was absolutely incredible and such a welcoming couple.

Fantastic evening i will definitely be back

Lovely evening, beautiful house, wonderful hosts, interesting dining companions - a perfect evening.

Amazing food and amazing place

Incredible food at a beautiful location! Pratap was amazing at making us feel welcome, explaining each dish and creating a fantastic atmosphere. Definitely something I would do again. Highly recommended!

Great evening and overall experience. Perfect format with a good mix of people and stimulating conversation, fuelled by amazing food. Great insights into the cuisine and culture with excellent dishes.

A wonderful evening - amazing food and perfect presentation! We will be back again. Thanks, Catherine

Outstanding quality food and a lot of it too - this was our first grub club and has set an extremely high precedent for the future - thank you for a wonderful evening. We particularly enjoyed the yoghurt kebab which was utterly divine and the jasmine infused creme brûlée - wow!

A wonderful evening of celebratory Indian food. We enjoyed Pratap's historical and literary references for the dishes. A great way to enjoy unique food and a wonderful evening all round. I think everyone there on the night was a repeat guest which tells you all you need to know. Pratap and Nikhat are the perfect hosts.

Wonderful evening - made to feel very welcome, and the best Indian food I have ever had! So beautifully presented too. Already looking forward to the next one!

A legendary evening. Sublime food and impeccable, gracious hosts. We can't wait to return.

The overall experience was astonishing. I cannot believe how amazing the hosts, the other guests, the venue and the food was. Like turning up to a private dinner party with old friends.

Lovely night meeting new people and trying delicious cuisine with a difference. Very good value for money and we will definitely be back. Highly recommend. Thanks for a great night.

A great social event the food was interesting and tasty. You can tell pratak has lots of experience and has a relaxed way, even when he has a lot going on. He also has time to socialise at the end, it's a well oiled machine. Don't miss one of these.

Pratap served up unique and innovative dishes that were surprising and utterly delicious. You can tell that he has worked in Michelin starred restaurants. He and his wife made us feel very welcome in their lovely home (the garden was a highlight!) and the service was spot on. The atmosphere was warm and relaxed so highly recommended.

Pratap and Nikhat were wonderful hosts! The food was amazing, and we enjoyed getting to know them throughout the evening. My favourite grub club event so far.

Thanks for a really lovely evening - great food and fun company

unbelievably delicious food from unbelievably awesome hosts. thank you! xxxx

Amazing food! Beautiful house! Lovely hosts! Would highly recommend.

Great time, great food, great house. Loved it.

Great, inventive BBQ served by charming hosts. I definitely had a great time and would recommend their events.

Great barbecue in lovely setting

The food was delicious and Pratap and his wife were friendly and generous hosts. The garden is beautiful and all in all it was a great afternoon. Plus, nearly everyone seemed to win a prize in the raffle and we were all sent home with jars of curry sauce in a "party bag"!

Amazing Garden, Lovely Hosts

We went to Pratap and Nikhat's humble abode - in the very garden they celebrated their wedding in. The backyard was gorgeous and head chef cooked out of a woodfired oven. The food was delicious with an Indian flair. Hospitality was top notch. Even got to leave with That Hungry Chef's Pork Vindaloo in a goodie bag. Thanks for an amazing afternoon.

Great event - such a beautiful garden, delicious food, nice hosts

The Secret Garden

What an amazing day. Beautiful weather, gorgeous setting and wonderful hosts...the food was pretty good too! I would highly recommend and can't wait for my next supper club!

Brilliant experience - delicate and subtle flavours

Pratap's wonderful meal reflected his exploration of the roots of Indian cuisine and the legacy of the Mughal dynasty. This was a culinary history lesson as well as a taste sensation. Far removed from anyone's normal impressions of curry. Highlights were the subtle spicing and combinations of flavours and textures. Like a bhangra dance on your tongue. The sweet flavours of dried fruit and nuts were carefully balanced in each dish and our take home goody bag of Pratap's latest creation made for a perfect supper club evening in lively company. We shall return!

What a night at the Emperor's Table

This was our first GrubClub event and we will be going to many more after this! The food was delicious and it was fantastic to be given a walkthrough about where the different dishes come from in both their place in history and geographical area. 'That Hungry Chef' and his wife were perfect hosts and the house was beautiful. I cannot recommend this event enough. If anyone is having doubts about whether or not to come to an event hosted by this lovely couple I suggest they book it before it sells out! You will not regret it.

Wonderful, relaxed atmosphere, only heightened by great food.

Pratap is a genial host and well informed about food and the history of what he's doing - he and his wife (I'm sorry I have forgotten her name!) obviously love what they do. The setting is great, a nice big dining table, not too cramped, but gets everyone talking. Discussion and wine flowed, until the food arrived, stunning everyone into silence briefly before it broke out again! Delicious, interesting and just the right amount. Thank you! My first grub club, and think I'll be back again.

Tantilizing smells, Bursting flavors & New friends

From the moment we walked in the door, the delicious smells coming from the kitchen had my mouth watering. Pratap and Nikhat had everyone feeling completely at home allowing the guests to wander in the garden or relax in the living room. Once dinner started Pratap explained the history and origins of the Mughal food we were about to enjoy. The flavor combinations were a celebration of each individual ingredient and what they accomplished together was a perfect meal. By the end, we all sat around and chatted for another 30-40 minutes, coming away from the experience with new friends in addition to the wonderful food we enjoyed. What more could you ask for from an evening out??

Moghul'd Delight

A delightful evening with genial hostess and Hungry Chef was had last week Careful cooking produced an array of subtle flabours and individual dishes of really rather lovely food It was such a treat, both of setting and casual stle of communal eating, that it far surpassed fine dining As a single diner it was great to just fit in with new people and experience quality16th century food modernised to such a standard Thank you

Top notch food - lovely home

Really enjoyed both the food and the setting. My absolute favorite was the little digestive dessert tart served at the end, never had a taste sensation like it before. If you ever bottle and sell it let me know I will buy some in a heartbeat. All other dishes were top notch, very flavorful and beautifully presented. So glad I went.

Warm hosts, delicious food

We were welcomed really warmly and our hosts did everything they could to help me as I'm on crutches! The food was awesome and well explained; the atmosphere was relaxed and friendly; the home setting was beautiful and we left absolutely stuffed. What more could you ask for?

Hot in Holloway

What a fantastic night! The food was sublime, but packed a little more heat than expected. It was a good thing it was BYO, as thirsts were raging! The dishes were beautifully presented, at a warm, inviting table packed with interesting people with a love of great food. It was a curiosity being in somebody's home, but Through the Keyhole nosiness aside, it soon felt very comfortable. That Hungry Chef was witty, friendly and highly informative, especially when explaining one of the most amazing desserts of my life (I've had a few), an Indian style creme brulee that has a heady wisp of smoked cloves escape your pot when the lid is removed. Travel from wherever you are, to get to this amazing meal.

Style and Spices

We thoroughly enjoyed the inventive food and the warm atmosphere. A very creative menu with much use of Indian flavours and spicing. We particularly liked the cubes of cool but spicy hot pickled watermelon with the duck and the dessert, jaggery creme brulee with clove smoke served in earthernware jars. Pratap took time to explain the dishes and all my queries about how he sources his ingredients. We have already booked for another night.

wonderful experience

The food is eclectic, creative, and delicious. The hosts were friendly and created a lovely atmosphere for the dinner. I definitely would sign up for another event hosted by this couple.

Shall I compare thee to a summers day?

Absolutely fantastic. That Hungry Chef is innovative and creative as ever. Flawlessly combining French Haut Cuisine, with subtle and delicious Indian flavours. Vindaloo Duck Confit, Jaggery Crème Brûle, both absolute perfection, with twists that take them beyond anything I've ever had in France. What a brilliant night out with the GC team. To be spoilt by Pratap and is lovely wife Nikha's, charming and warm hospitality, yet again. And after a wonderful meal, we had a walk through their gorgeous garden for a quick nightcap, before regrettably departing from their warm hospitality.

The Most Beautiful Food in the World

This is my third grub club with That Hungry Chef and each time I am more astounded than the last time. I'm still dreaming of that Confit Duck Vindaloo. And that smoky jaggery creme brulee filled me with delight from the moment I lifted that little lid and the smoke ebbed its way towards me - and that was before I even got to taste it. Just when I thought it couldn't get any better, BOOM. Pratap delivered a knock-out punch with the best dessert in the world. And just when I thought that was it, out came the handmade chocolate chili truffles. Pratap and Nikhat, does your magic ever end??

Just brilliant

Once again Pratap has cooked up an absolute storm. Some of my favourite food in London. He and his wife Nikhat are some of the most welcoming people you could find and their home is stunning. Chapeau.

Is this my favourite Grub Club?

Its definitely up there, Pratap and Nikka are just amazing hosts, the food is better that any of the Michelin level Indian restaurants I have been too - the price is even better too. And the home!! And the garden.Stunning!

Wow

Wow. This was absolutely fantastic. Pratap's cooking was incredible. Amazing flavours. Great vibe all round. Highly, highly recommended.

Amazing food, atmosphere and hosts

The decoration which had amazing items - chairs, sculptures, paintings - was a sign that the dinner was prepared by a chef with a good taste :) The food was dreamy, and it came with fascinating descriptions / stories. Beyond the wonderful food, very friendly and lovely hosts made the night unforgettable.

The perfect dinner

What a fantastic evening. I consider myself an Indian food aficionado but this is quite honestly the best Indian food I've ever had. Both delicate yet incredibly complex, Pratap really managed to awaken every sense and taste bud, with an explosion of the most amazing flavours and textures. That yoghurt kebab was out of the world, like nothing I've ever eaten. And the venison - so tender and flavourful, marrying so well with the black lentils. Everything was to die for. And the hosts themselves were the most welcoming and warming hosts you can imagine. Friendly, warm, fun, so much fun, so generous and with incredible attention to detail, in the most beautiful setting. As I said, it was the perfect dinner!

Fantastic night

Wonderful hosts, beautiful house, spectacular food. Will hopefully be going to a lot more of these...

Wonderful food, great hosts

We had such a wonderful evening with amazing food - smoked turnip in two ways was amaZing! And the black lentils were to die for. Both hosts were such fun, so kind and made us feel so welcome.

Amazing flavours, Beautiful home venue, really interesting and friendly hosts!

Loved it, particularly the really different stuff - smoked turnips and yoghurt kebabs. Also really appreciated the descriptions of what you were serving.

Good quality food well cooked fun atmosphere

Tasty food

Great food and fun night
