Indian and South Asian
Specialising in Indian Punjabi cuisine, Pakwaan is an award-winning restaurant in the village of Writtle, just outside of Chelmsford. Customers are given an exclusive fine dining experience by owner Rajesh Chouhan and his talented team, who have a passion for providing a combination of authentic Indian cuisine, top-class hospitality and sophisticated entertainment. Rajesh has used his impeccable taste and meticulous eye for detail to build up Pakwaan’s reputation as one of the UK’s top Indian fine dining restaurants.
A huge amount of imagination and creative flair has gone in to both the decor of the restaurant and the extensive menu, both of which have a fresh, clean and vibrant feel. The à la carte menu is prepared to suit all preferences and tastes, and the experienced chefs are happy to adapt dishes to provide bespoke meals to individual diners.
Start your refined dining experience by selecting one of the delicious starters. Choose from the classic but expertly cooked onion bhaji or more inventive offerings like tandoori prawns, spicy Bombay calamari and chilli paneer. Whatever you choose, your tastebuds are sure to be tingling, ready for the main course.
There’s plenty to choose from to suit all tastes, including vegetarian specialities. For a meat-free spin on an old favourite, try the jackfruit kofta with spinach, or go for the satisfying tarka dahl. Age-old classics such as the punchy lamb rogan josh sit alongside the likes of sea bass cooked in a coconut cream sauce with mussels. The ever-helpful staff are on-hand to advise which dishes to go for, guiding you towards the right level of heat for your palate.
Also able to cater for corporate events, weddings, boardroom lunches, cocktail parties and bespoke dining experiences, Pakwaan is the perfect venue for any occasion.
