Michelin star chef Gordon Ramsay has praised a Newcastle restaurant, saying that he had “one of the best curries in my entire life”.
According to The Sun, Ramsey stated that Indian restaurant Khai Khai - which is located on Queen Street in Newcastle, took him back to when he had visited and tasted food in the likes of Mumbai and Rajasthan.
The award winning 56-year-old chef is notoriously difficult to please, which was shown in his early reality television shows, such as Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares and Hell’s Kitchen.
However, when it came to visiting Khai Khai, Ramsay was pleasantly surprised by the dishes served by the restaurant.
Khai Khai opened in 2020, originally as a takeaway due to Covid-19 restrictions. However, once opened as a full restaurant, it became a huge hit and celebrity hot spot - with the likes of Harrison Ford and many Newcastle United football players choosing to dine in the restaurant.
Khai Khai have also recently made it on to the Michelin Guide. Alfred Prasad is the Chef Mentor at Khai Khai, and he received a Michelin star at only 29 years old, becoming the youngest Indian chef to receive the recognition.
Prasad worked alongside Khai Khai owner Jaf Ali to redesign the kitchen and create the menu in order to provide the North East with authentic, traditional Indian cuisine.
