KALPA: FAST-ER-FOOD; FROM THE MAN BEHIND KARNAVAR
Manoj is the Chef and owner of Karnavar Restaurant. Karnavar is a critically acclaimed, stylish, spot-lit restaurant with banquette seating, for traditional and modern Indian fine dining, located at South End, Croydon.
Unlike a typical Indian restaurant kitchen, Manoj escapes the use of conventional ghee, butter and cream in his fast paced restaurant in favour of coconut milk and healthy oils, like sesame oil, rapeseed oil and coconut oil, resulting in a delicate, healthy, clean eating menu.
The restaurant name Kalpa was inspired by the Sanskrit word Kalpavriksha; The Coconut Tree, a divine tree of which every part is used in India. The name Kalpa also gives a nod to the convenience of the swift and timely manner in which Manoj and the team at Kalpa serve every diner as they redefine healthier “fast-er-food”.Read more about Karnavar
