An interactive staff and a socilable and friendly manager really makes this small restaurant stand out from the rest. A stunning dive into multiple new Punjabi and Fusion dishes that were made there shows the restaurants consideration of both quality and quantity for moderate price.

My family and I are life long 'Bristolians' and more importantly 'Eastonians' and it is through this lens we aim to give back to the local community which has provided so much for me and my young family. We look forward to providing Easton, first of all with Punjabi cuisine with a unique British fusion flavour, and in time to come, the whole of Bristol and beyond. With over 20 years as a senior chef and extensive experience in the catering industry, I know this will show in my hospitality as well as the cuisine I provide for a great experience!
