To be chosen as Food and Wine Magazine Chef of the Year in Ireland is a honour for any chef but it is even a greater achievement for a chef outside the island of Ireland. This is a tremendous tribute to Sunil and a manifestation of the high esteem he is held in by his peers. He and his team have revolutionised the image of Indian food in this country.

When I first met Sunil, an amiable yet ambitious Indian chef, I was curious to see whether he could lift the accepted standard of Indian cuisine in Ireland.

However, having been to the restaurant he worked in and tasted his cooking over a few visits I started to think that he could.

I didn’t have to wait too long to have my questions answered. Sunil, as a chef, has led the way in re-vitalising and improving Indian cuisine in Ireland over the last five years. His food is progressive and intelligent, using sophisticated spicing and acidity to bring wonderful Irish raw produce to new levels of offering in Indian cuisine.

His fine craftsmanship has enabled a whole generation of Irish people to understand the more delicate aspects and flavours that Indian food has to offer when taken to this level.

In short he is a gem and we hope that he remains in Ireland so that we can continue to appreciate his enthusiasm for raising the level of Indian cuisine for many more years to come.

Modeled on the old-world bustling cafés of Bombay, Pickle brings a new style of Indian eating to Dublin, and indeed Ireland…

This is confident complex cooking but it is also comforting and familiar as mixed in with the unusual are some close renderings of dishes the chef’s mother cooked or street food favourites from New Delhi… A modern Indian restaurant with creative and imaginative but unshowy cooking from a master chef at the top of his game.

In his new venture, Sunil has forsaken the “broadening of horizons” aesthetic in favour of retracing his steps to northern India where he grew up and replicating its culinary idiom…the standard of cooking is, as you would expect, is way ahead of the norm.

Pickle: ‘The spice of life and the best Indian food I’ve eaten in Ireland’ Pickle is Sunil Ghai’s first standalone restaurant. Located at the Bleeding Horse end of Camden Street, it could not be more different to the plushly draped Ananda in Dundrum Town Centre that was his base for most of the last decade.

Sometimes a new restaurant opens which challenges your perception of a certain cuisine, and highlights it in a way you’ve never experienced before…

March 2016

Sunil Ghai was the creative force behind Jaipur and later the excellent Ananda in Dundrum, and he has finally struck out on his own with Pickle and taken along his old front-of-house colleague Benny Jacob…
