Taj’s Campton Place restaurant; a decade old Indian-inspired restaurant in San Francisco, broke new ground on Monday by earning its second Michelin star. This makes the Indian-Californian restaurant the first of its kind in the US and Europe to be awarded two Michelin stars.

Inspired equally by his California surroundings and South Indian upbringing, Chef Srijith’s constantly evolving menu and experimental approach has led to the creation of their signature dishes such as: Campton Place’s spice pot, spring peas paniyaram with gunpowder dust, cucumber chaas, shisito pepper pakoras and more.

Bringing Indian cuisine to the west and tweaking it to suit an international palette, the restaurant has refined their signature Californian-Indian cuisine by artfully fusing Californian produce and cooking techniques with regional inspiration, aromatics and traditional spice blends of India. This captivating journey comes through its Eastern and Western flavours and showcases highly-finessed techniques and unexpected flavour combinations.
