You might not immediately recognise The Indian Streatery, but we bet you’ve heard of The Indian Rasoi, right? A firm favourite amongst the street food scene, the team behind The Indian Rasoi took their well received formula of serving inspired Indian bites and turned it into their first brick and mortar restaurant - ipso-facto, The Indian Streatery was born.
As the name suggests, The Indian Streatery sticks to its street food roots, serving up a plethora of dishes influenced by traditional Indian recipes that span across different regions and generations. In the kitchen, a team of all female chefs cook up a storm of delights throughout the day. During lunch hours, they’re encouraging everyone to ditch their normal sandwich and pick up a hot chicken or vegan curry, or a warming lentil hot pot, as part of their quick-fire grab and go menu. There’s also chaat - a street food favourite amongst the Wriggle lot - with pakora, samosa, and chicken variations available.
From 4pm, evening dining takes over with a menu of popular plates. From beautifully smooth yellow dhal to lamb kofta, there’s a bunch of dishes that everyone will want to sink their teeth into. And for something a little different, check out their pakora fried chicken burger or minted lamb pakora burger - they’ll knock your socks off. To accompany your meal, be sure to check out their signature cocktails, as well as their vegan and locally brewed craft beers.
The space is as slick as the menu. The team transformed the former Adams building into a sellk, chilled eatery. As a nod to their street food days, a cart stands up one end acting as a unique bar area where the team artful flips cocktails and pours cold bottles of beer. The rest of the space is stripped back with a tidy industrial vibe; expect tables with a handmade vibe, comfortable chairs and the odd plant growing downwards from the rafters above.
The Indian Streatery have perfectly adjusted their street food favourites into a proper restaurant space - a feat that many spaces fail to master. If you’re a lover of street food and Indian feasts, this is definitely the place for you.
