Atul Kochhar Master of P&O Spices

Mix together Michelin-starred chef Atul Kochhar, chic sophisticated surroundings and a menu of sublime and intriguing flavours and you have Sindhu – one of Azura’s enticing Select Dining restaurants. Celebrating Britain’s love affair with Indian cuisine and P&O Cruises long standing affiliation with India, this fine dining venue will offer contemporary Indian cuisine with a British twist.

Atul is very proud of Sindhu – his very first restaurant at sea – and excited about the planning and preparation involved. He has just finished creating the mouth watering menus, which include classic spice-infused dishes such as Crab Masala with Crab Claws and Vermicelli Biriyani. He is also working with the P&O Cruises team to develop the menu designs and table settings as well as taking time to train each of the chefs who will be working there.

Sommeliers from Atul’s London based restaurant, Benares, will be helping to develop Sindhu’s wine list, matching vintages with the menus. Plus they will also be creating the fruity, Indian-inspired cocktails that will also be served in the bar.

    My wife & I sailed on the Azura recently and loved everything about Sindhu. We ate there ten times during an eighteen day cruise. The food, the staff and atmosphere was brilliant. We’re already looking fowards to the next time.
