JKS Restaurants will open its latest London venture this summer, celebrating food from Punjab.

Called Ambassadors Clubhouse, it will open at 25 Heddon Street in Mayfair on the site that was formerly refined Berber Mediterranean restaurant Momo.

The 140-cover restaurant will be named after JKS founders Jyotin, Karam, and Sunaina Sethi's maternal grandfather, who was a former Indian ambassador, and will take inspiration from his summer house in Dalhousie (formerly part of Punjab) and north India’s abandoned party mansions.

The menu will focus on the cuisine of undivided Punjab with a menu showcasing rare regional recipes. Dishes will include classic papads, chaats and bitings, lesser-known kebabs cooked across the tandoor, sigri and tawa; curries cooked in cast-iron karahis and clay matkas; pilaus, biryanis, tandoor-roasted breads, and classic desserts.

Dish highlights will include paan patta chaat, mooli and dahi kebabs; nalli chapli kebab; karahi saufiyan langoustines; Punjabi atta chicken; and haryali rara rabbit keema.

The drinks list will focus on tequila and mezcal cocktails blended with regional produce. Highlights will include a selection of Punjabi margaritas made with exotic north Indian fruits and citrus and paired with chaat masala spiced salts. The list will also include a number of celebratory large serves - including the Patiala Peg made with Johnnie Walker Gold. 

The restaurant will be split across two floors, featuring a 40-cover outdoor heated verandah and three private dining spaces: The Raja Rani Room, seating up to 14 guests; The Jungli Room, seating up to six guests; and The Tamasha Room, seating up to 10 guests.

The restaurant’s interiors will feature classic Indian patterns overlaid with bright, modern prints, with the dining room to feature a maximalist central bar with a gold dome, booth seating and counter dining while the lower ground floor will feature a drinking and dining space alongside a DJ booth that will be open until late.

It will be the second JKS-owned restaurant on Heddon Street joining Sabor, located at 35-37 Heddon Street.
