About the employer

We are niche Indian Food restaurant. Our cuisine is inspired by Mumbai Street Food. It is very different to what is understood as ‘Indian Food’ or ‘Indian Curries’ in the UK. Food items such as Vada Paav, Sev Puri, Paav Bhaji, etc. are rarely in any of the UK restaurants. The method of preparation is unique and such expertise is very hard to find or cultivate locally. We have raised and are raising further SEIS qualifying investments. We want to expand across UK over the next 2-3 years. The taste and quality that we are offering to our customers needs to remain consistent.
