Atithi

A new Indian restaurant on Mill Road features a sharing menu and weekend lunch options

When it comes to Indian cuisine, Mill Road is Cambridge’s answer to Brick Lane: teeming with top-notch curry houses vying for diners’ attention. The latest addition, Atithi, is found at number 52 and opened at the end of January, promising “contemporary Indian cuisine with a sophisticated twist”.

With a fresh and modern interior that draws on traditional ethnic arts, the restaurant offers guests a fine dining experience complete with in-house wine expert. To eat, you can choose between the six-course tasting menu, the à la carte menu, vegan and vegetarian menus or the Dawat (sharing) menu.

There’s also a lunch menu at weekends. Manning the stoves is head chef Kamaladasan, who spent eight years at the Michelin-starred Tamarind in London, honing his unique style and creativity. He’ll be overseeing a menu inspired by flavours and techniques from across India, and created using top-quality, fresh ingredients.

Dishes on offer include six-hour slow cooked Hyderabadi lamb shank, and stuffed paneer with Indian five spice and dried pickled fig. There are also traditional staple dishes such as butter chicken masala and daal makhani.
