Opened in 2005, Kolapata – ‘banana leaf’ in Bengali – has been a leading destination to experience Bangladeshi cooking in London. The restaurant is modest, cheap and very popular with local Bangladeshis. When the food is freshly cooked and the full complement of chefs from Dhaka is in the kitchen, the flavours and freshness sing; expect a large range of grilled dishes and curries, and look for the list of house specials including starters, fish dishes and biryanis.

Whitechapel. A stone’s throw away from the city. Rich in history, culture and of course rich in
food. Gone are the days when Indian food was associated with a ‘Chicken Madras’, now we are
all very cultured. We know now Indian food is not really all that ‘Indian’. From the Indian
subcontinent there are now clear distinctions, there’s Pakistani food, Sri Lankan food and finally
Bangladeshi food. And the King in the Bangladeshi restaurant sector is without a doubt
Their selection of authentic Bangladeshi street food and byrianis is the stuff of legend. You ask
any Bangladeshi person if they had heard of Kolapata and they would answer YES.
From their Fuska (chickpea encased in a crispy pastry), Chotpoti ( a spicy chickpea soup with a
helping of tamarind sauce) to their Morog Pilau (¼ chicken encased in buttery pilau rice
supported by a sweet gravy), Bhuna Kitchuri (Juicy beef mixed with yellow spiced rice) all mouth
I am of course not the only one who thinks this, Kolapata has been open for more than a
decade and I am one of their many frequent customers. Their traditional Bangladeshi food
combined with their friendly staff and their unique decor brings back memories of an Asian
Best serving staff, Fuska is awesome, the Vuri Bhuna is just unforgettable, but need to give some extra effort on Kacci Biriyani ! ☺
