Bundobust – the unique Yorskhire Indian street food and craft beer restaurant – is hopping across to the Red Rose side of the Pennines with the opening of its second eatery, in Manchester’s Piccadilly Gardens, this autumn.
The award-winning concept opened its doors in Leeds in 2014, after bringing together two of West Yorkshire’s award-winning food and drink institutions, Bradford’s The Sparrow Bier Café and Drighlington’s Prashad restaurant.
Bundobust has already won numerous awards – from Best café bar at the Oliver Awards, two years running, to winning this year’s SIBA’s inaugural Best Independent Restaurant for Craft Beer. It is highly regarded as one of the nation’s most interesting fast/casual dining establishments.
Bundobust: craft beers meet Indian street food
The new Manchester site is that of a former Chinese buffet restaurant which closed in 2014, and on tap will be up to 20 craft beers, from some of the nation & world’s best breweries… with dedicated pumps for local Manchester breweries such as Cloudwater.
At just under 4,000sq ft, the new restaurant will be half as big again as the Leeds one, and it will create up to 25 new jobs. On the food side, expect to see Bundobust’s famous South Indian & Gujarati snacks such as Vada Pav, Bundo Chaat & Masalla Dosa – all of which are traditional Indian street food dishes.
Budobust is the brainchild of co-owners Mayur Patel and Mark Husak.
Mayur said: “Bundobust is a laid back place to grab a bite to eat & wash it down with some of the best beer in the world.
“It has a chilled out & vibe somewhere between a restaurant & a bar. Customers can call in for a quick snack & a half or stay for a few hours & work their way through the food & drink menu in a Tapas kind of way.”
Mark added: “The location is great and we are so excited to finally get the keys. We have been looking around the site this week and we plan to open at the end of September or early October”.
