Why we love it

Wander through Cargo 2 down at Wapping Wharf, and you'll stumble upon the cosy, colourful, and creative little culinary treasure trove that is Sholay Kitchen. An intimate, rustic space that's bursting with life, Sholay Kitchen's modern take on Indian cookery has made a giant, tasty and unforgettable splash since bursting onto the Bristol food scene in the summer of 2017.

Sholay Kitchen's raison d'être is creating deliciously fresh and exciting food that fuses traditional Indian street food dishes with modern twists and original creations. Pleasingly named dishes such as 'Grandma's Curry' – a daily-changing 'home-style' special curry – sit alongside the quirky sounding 'Chicken Lollipop', and there's plenty of mouthwatering options for veggies, fish-eaters and meat-eaters alike. The menu is short but perfectly formed, offering a choice of Small Plates, Large Plates and Side Plates – we love ordering a whole host of dishes for the table to share. It's informal, vibrant and fun – perfect for catching up with friends and family – and it won't leave you with that all-too-familiar bloated feeling of having ingested three kilos of semi-solidified cement mix that so often follows more traditional Indian meals.

Special mention must also go to the six absolutely stunning cocktails on offer at Sholay. Forget the standard and bland-ard offering of piña coladas, white Russians and the like; these unique concoctions incorporate the same flavours of India and innovative creativity that runs through Sholay's food menu. They're the perfect accompaniment to an already exciting meal – Wriggle are particularly enamoured with the Masala Chai Old Fashioned.
