Kitchen Chronicles

Last night I visited Kitchen Chronicles, an Indian restaurant located in the centre of Hazel Grove. Owned by the lovely Amina & her husband, they aim to provide an authentic experience in the comfort of your local area.

Opened in 2020, Kitchen Chronicles sadly had to close after one week of being open due to lockdown. They are now open for business, serving a variety of Indian dishes including curries, meats, vegetable dishes and street food, as well as vegan friendly dishes. For those who want to eat healthier, the chefs can prepare a range of dishes under 400 calories and can guarantee they are still delicious and full of flavour!

First things first, the decor. I loved all of the little touches around the restaurant- the pot pourri, mirrored side tables, velvet chairs and, of course, the flower ceiling! 

These little touches added to the intimate feel of the restaurant and made it feel super cosy and inviting.

We chose from the Festive Set Menu (1 starter, 1 main & a drink per person).


Indian Fritter stuffed with assorted vegetables, served with 3 sauces:
- sticky tamarind sauce
- yoghurt, coriander and garlic
- mint, green chilli, lemon and garlic

Wow. I don’t even know where to start. This was incredible. I loved the variety of vegetables that were used and the batter was so crispy, yet it didn’t crumble. The presentation of this dish was lovely. I love the silver platters and the sprinkling of pomegranate. 

My favourite sauce of the three was definitely the sticky tamarind - it complemented the batter perfectly and added an additional flavouring which I really enjoyed. I would highly recommend this dish - a home made, family recipe!



Puffed hollow pastry rounds stuffed with potato and served with a sweet and spicy greek yoghurt sauce

This was really different to anything I’ve tried before but it worked really well. They were like mini popadom bites but with the addition of potato in the middle. 

The sauce was really sweet - if you’re not usually an overly sweet person and prefer savoury, I would just add a small amount of sauce to this dish. It was lovely!




Chicken Tikka cooked in a creamy cashew or peanut sauce.

Hands. Down. Best Butter Chicken I’ve ever had!!! 

This was so creamy and full of flavour. The chicken was really succulent and I loved the addition of crushed nuts. Try this with some garlic naan and a bit of rice - perfection.

Also, I think it’s quite hard to present a curry in a creative and eye-catching way with it being a liquid/sauce style dish but Kitchen Chronicles definitely succeeded with this. 

I would order this every single time - it’s soooo good!!



Slow cooked, medium chicken curry with intense flavours and garnished with coriander

This was more of a ‘traditional’ curry dish. You could taste the individual spices of this curry. The sauce was smooth and the chicken was really tender. A great dish for someone who wants a dish that isn’t too spicy but still has flavour.

I honestly couldn’t have asked for better food or service. It had such a homely feel and the dishes Amina was so lovely and helpful and made all customers feel really welcome.

Thank you so much to Kitchen Chronicles for their amazing hospitality. A lovely evening with insanely good food - I can’t wait to go back soon to try more of the menu!
