About Colonel Saab

Tucked away on an unassuming street in Holborn is the area’s former Town Hall, an impressive building with striking original detailing both inside and out which is now home to Colonel Saab. It’s safe to say that those looking for a unique event and party spot in the heart of London should find what they’re looking for in this quirky venue.

Headed up by entrepreneur Roop Partap Choudhary (who already runs two successful luxury hotel brands in India), this is an Indian restaurant with a difference. Paying homage to the food of his childhood, Choudhary has designed the menu with attention to detail across the board ensuring each plates combines colour, texture and – of course – flavour.

Each event at Colonel Saab is completely unique, with menus to match. If you’re looking to host a breakfast meeting the team can rustle up some of their signatures which include a korma doused Eggs Benedict as well as a full fry up that comes with spicy baked beans and a masala omelette. Later in the day there’s a mix of smaller sharing plates and larger mains with hero dishes like the aubergines in a chilli and peanut sauce being perennially popular. Canapes, special menus and bowl food as well as drinks packages are all available. 

With two private dining rooms and a separate bar, there are near endless combinations possible for parties. Smaller groups might like the intimacy of one of the rooms near the kitchen where you can hear the buzz of a happy team, while the upstairs mezzanine creates the perfect exclusive atmosphere for drinks receptions. For large-scale gatherings there’s the option to hire the restaurant in its entirety, giving you access to all its spaces for a day that you can completely tailor to you and your needs. The helpful in-house team will help you plan your day each step of the way, to ensure everything is perfect and aligned with your vision.
