Christmas Party Menus Covent Garden

Colonel Saab is an authentic and unique, luxury Indian dining concept, in the centre of London, from award-winning entrepreneur Roop Partap Choudhary; your host, who meticulously crafted the menu and this art-festooned destination as a "love letter” to his family and India.

Set in Holborn, this award winning restaurant is only a stone's throw away from London’s famous Covent Garden, City and West End.

We will be serving special tantalising tasting menus in addition to our a la carte and canapé menus available in the private dining rooms. Guests can also opt for wine and champagne pairing for the ultimate celebration.

Guests will dine in our extraordinary setting, described as a feast for the eyes, with a treasure trove of eclectic Indian art and artefacts collected by Mr Choudhary's family on their travels. The experience wouldn’t be complete without the 5-star service brought to you by Colonel Saab's staff. They play an indispensable part in the evening's proceedings by bringing the decadent surroundings to life and happily regaling guests with the rich stories and histories of the sumptuous artwork adorning the restaurant.

Guests have the option to be greeted by a live jazz band to set the mood, enjoy a complimentary round of Prosecco from us to you and can select from our wonderful set menus, featuring some of the restaurant's most popular dishes mixed with special creations for the festive season. We must not forget to mention our unique cocktail menu, crafted by the well known mixologist Anthony Bertin. Colonel Saab eschews the artifice of contrived Indian kitsch and instead presents an eclectic décor with consummate elegance and wit. Experience your unforgettable evening with us as we pop the champagne corks and cheer our way into the New Year at Colonel Saab.


Christmas party menus available to book from £56.95 per person.

All Christmas party bookings receive a complimentary Prosecco and bottled beer reception* for groups of 10 – 60. Groups from 10 to 60 in the private dining rooms. Or up to 130 guests for exclusive hire of the entire restaurant.


Our team of culinary experts welcome you to eat in one of our four dining areas; the ground floor restaurant, the main arena, the mezzanine and our two private dining rooms.

In addition to the restaurant and bar, the restaurant boasts two tastefully designed private dining rooms. Available for exclusive bookings providing a more intimate setting accommodating up to 60 people for a reception or 30 for a sit down dinner.

The private dining rooms feature large windows allowing for plenty of natural daylight, perfect for a lunch, otherwise amber and warm toned lighting compliment all the beautiful artworks adorning the shelves and walls for a very special evening. The picturesque setting allows for parties to hire either one or combine both dining rooms to create a larger space. Included in your hire is the stunning large oval wooden tables for up to 15 guests each. These can be cleared for standing receptions and replaced with high poseur tables. Complimentary Wi-Fi and speakers for background music are included, and guests are welcome to bring in acoustic entertainment and a DJ upon request, creating the ideal setting for any corporate dining or elegant celebration event.

Guests can also dine in or hire the mezzanine area, a space reminiscent of quarters from a Royal Mahal. For a combination of classic elegance with exotic art, the mezzanine is a perfect place for a private event within the aura of the main restaurant, which it overlooks, and provides a great area for an intimate gathering of up to 40 people. 


Colonel Saab sits in the Grade II listed Holborn Town Hall and housed in the old public library. The original building was constructed in 1894 in the French Renaissance style, complete with arched entrances flanked by Corinthian style pillars and oriel windows on the first floor and is now a listed heritage building. Today, apart from a few original features the new exotic design and decor of the restaurant compliments the old building with warm colours, brass and wood features and a stunning collection of chandeliers which have been handcrafted and shipped over from India. The nearest tube is Holborn and between Soho and Covent Garden.

Whether you’re celebrating something special with friends and family or you’d like to hold an important business event, we welcome intimate and larger groups of people to enjoy the privacy of one of our stunning two private dining rooms, our mezzanine area if not exclusive hire of the entire restaurant.

For an unforgettable festive event in London, visit Colonel Saab where one is guaranteed an evening of opulence in the heart of the city.
