Sindhu – Indian food by Atul Kochhar on board Britannia

Atul Kochhar, renowned 2 Michelin Starred chef, and one of Britannia’s food heroes, has a restaurant called Sindhu on board Britannia, a P&O Cruise ship. The cuisine is traditional Indian cuisine with contemporary twists with a more upmarket fine dining feel.

We tried the restaurant one evening and even as we walked towards the restaurant, we could smell amazing aromas wafting through the air of different spices.

We were served an Onion bhaji as a pre-starter, which served in a cute bowl. It was lovely and crisp on the exterior and warm and soft and flavoursome on the inside. Perfect way to start the meal.


For starters the majority of us ordered Shammi Kebabs, which are Spiced Lamb Cakes served with a Mint and Tamarind Chutney. These were delightful, so full of flavour and marinated really well. It was apparent that they had been prepared, marinated and cooked for a long time. The texture was brilliant – literally melt in your mouth.


Amit went for Khasta Murgh for his starters choice. This was a Chicken Tikka Pie with Wild Berry Compote. So unusual yet fantastic!


For mains the other ladies went for Murgh Biryani, which is Indian Style Baked Chicken and Rice served in a Traditional Handi. To their surprise and delight it arrived with the dough lid still on, which was removed at our table. This is the proper traditional way of cooking Biryani.


My choice was the Kong Kari, which is a Native Lobster Fricassee with Rice Pancakes, Asparagus and Atul’s Signature Malabar Sauce. This was a stunning dish and I loved all the different flavour sensations.


For dessert we all went for Kulfi, which is Indian Ice cream.  This was served in a trio of Mango, Chocolate and Malai, and presented beautifully.


The entire meal was fabulous and has left me wanting to visit the Sindhu restaurant in Marlow.

The food was delicious, of high standards and exactly the kind of amazing dishes with modern fusion that you would expect from Atul Kochhar.
