Dear Friends,

As we all now know, the UK has moved into National Lockdown.

To comply with these new restrictions, it is with a heavy heart that we have closed the dining room at Darjeeling Express Covent Garden at this time. 

To avoid further disruption, reservation options for the Tasting Menu will be suspended until we have clarity on the COVID-19 safety guidance in London.

If you have an upcoming booking with us please presume it has been cancelled unless we contact you to confirm it is proceeding. We will be reviewing the COVID-19 hospitality guidelines every week and contact guests to confirm for the following week and release available seats for booking. 

The Deli by Darjeeling Express  reopens on 6th January 2021 and serves our Platform and Carriage menus along with our famous masala chai. The Deli opening hours have been  amended to welcome as many of our guests in need of warm food to fuel you through the winter days, as well as offering delivery options. 

Our Deli Opening Times now are:

Wednesday to Saturday from 12pm - 7pm


We have expanded the Carriage menu to include more soul-warming dishes, including: Chicken Kati Roll, Prawn Malai Curry and Chicken Methi Rice. 

We don’t want you to wait too long until you can experience the Darjeeling Express feast, so we are delighted to announce that we have created the Feast for Four Meal Kits. These meal kits are personally curated by Asma Khan and follow her never previously published recipes. The kits are prepared with all the dry spices and instructions you will need to recreate an opulent, mouth-watering, feast at home! These are available in our online shop now to buy or gift!

As ever, your continued support for Darjeeling Express Covent Garden has meant everything to us. Until we are able to welcome you to the restaurant again, stay well, safe and hopeful. Like all things, this too will pass.

If you have any questions, do get in touch by email at

We are pleased to announce a series of Biryani Supper Club events from May 2021 which are now available for pre-booking!
