Our spice journey: From Southern India’s Hill Station region to our first bricks & mortar restaurant.

Coconut Chilli’s roots were established at the iconic Whiteladies Road farmers market in foodie Bristol, where founder Navina Bartlett launched her award-winning Southern Indian cuisine. But the bright lights and keen London foodies beckoned and for several years, Executive Chef, KK Anand and the ‘Boss Lady’ have been feeding hungry punters all across the capital.

The ‘Hill Station’ areas of India – the inspiration for our cuisine - have long been known for outrageous parties flowing with EXCELLENT food and drink.

Our pop up has now sadly closed and we’d like to thank everyone who came along to dine. The food coming out of our kitchen was top notch & lots of customers LOVED it and told their friends who lived nearby. And then they came too... and slowly but surely word spread around 'Bristol village'. So, our lovely customers, we'd love to come back - but bigger, stronger and with a more varied menu, a few more wines to choose from and the rum bar which we'd quietly mentioned at the beginning but didn't quite get around to. The atmosphere was simply brilliant... we created a genuine community feel in a space cherished by lots of Bristolians who'd visited, eaten or partied there over years gone by. The chapter isn't fully closed, we're taking a much-earned breather to recoup, recollect and find the right space... If you want to keep up to date, please follow us on FB (and tell your friends who loved our pop up too!)

Although our roots are firmly in Bristol, as event caterers, we've been busy working away, mainly in & around London for the last couple of years.

Coconut Chilli has had the absolute privilege of attending some of the most well respected food festivals in the UK including Jamie Oliver’s ‘The Big Feastival’, Abergavenny Food Festival and Bristol Food Connections. We have also worked with prestigious corporates such as the Financial Times, Virgin Start Up and Microsoft as well as catering for Diwali celebrations for the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, in Trafalgar Square.
