Chef Manoj was born into a farming family, (they didn’t have a fridge or freezer) so the family were always used to using fresh ingredients in their kitchen. He first learnt cooking from his mother and grandmother at home.

Asking himself and thinking what is the best food in the world? and what makes certain people live to 80 or 100 years old? all the clues were pointing to having a correct diet; he used the knowledge from his learning experience and incorporated that into his style of cooking i.e. creating good Indian food with real honest passion, and good quality ingredients, no artificial colours or preservatives, and using healthy oils.

Kalpa restaurant opened last year and has had a lot of great reviews; the restaurant is run by Head Chef and Patron Manoj Karnavar who has worked in world class, leading high end five star hotels in India, Dubai and the UK, hotel restaurants such as Marriot, Fairmont, Savoy, Claridge’s, Mandarin Oriental in Hyde Park and has been fortunate enough to have worked alongside top Michelin starred chefs.
