Mandira’s Kitchen, near Guildford

Sample the flavours of authentic Indian street food at this friendly waterside eatery and shop overlooking the Silent Pool in the Surrey Hills.

Weekend Escapes

Mandira’s Kitchen is an award-winning producer of authentic Indian food offering up delicious home-cooked freezer meals and accompaniments such as chutneys and ice creams to take away as well as terrace dining and bespoke catering.

The all-woman team, based out of a 400-year-old converted cowshed which overlooks the magical Silent Pool, also offer food experiences such as cookery lessons, spice tours and supper clubs.

The terrace dining – Chai on the Patio – is best booked in advance to avoid disappointment. Click here to see the summer menu.

All the food is made using fresh produce, containing no gluten or unpronounceable bits with vegan and dairy free options. Delivered to any UK Mainland address, the food can be heated in 4 minutes to give you a wholesome and super-tasty homemade meal.

The story of Mandira’s Kitchen starts with the founder Mandira Sarkar – who has recreated traditional Indian dishes using recipes passed down through through her family. Each dish has it’s own history – from Mandira’s mother’s Kaju Dhania to her grandmother’s Jackfruit curry.

The menu includes meat, fish, vegetarian and vegan dishes, as well as gluten and dairy free options – and all dietary requirements can be catered for.

The food arrives frozen and can be kept in the fridge for 48 hours or in the freezer for up to 6 months. Each pack contains two separate portions – ideal for dining alone and reducing food waste – and all packaging is recyclable.

But you won’t want to stop at just the homecooked meals – Mandira’s Store cupboard goodies includes a range of chutneys, spices and crackers.

If you fancy cooking your own authentic curry – there is the Cooking Experience Kit which contains all the spices you will need in a stylish storage tin, with a recipe booklet – or sign up for one of Mandira’s Cookery Lessons.

And if you can’t get enough of Mandira’s food – sign up for the Monthly Subscription Boxes of Happiness which brings delicious food straight to your door every month.

The monthly boxes are flexible – you can choose to have the same or different meals every month – and as a VIP you’ll also have first choice on the monthly specials: a limited number of family favourites created for that month only. Subscriptions can also be paused, if you’re going away, or gifted to another person.

Fresh produce, family recipes containing no additives, preservatives or gluten – made just the way a million Indian mums make it. Oh and don’t forget the crispy samosas. Delicious!
