indian street food

About us

The bloke on the left. Well he’s our father, our Babuji. His journey started back in 1959. Before arriving in the UK Babuji decided to travel through Bangladesh, India then Pakistan, teaching, learning and eating lots on the way. In particular the street stalls of Calcutta, Mumbai, and Lahore were his favourites.

Our food is a homage to the street vendors and Cafés of South Asia. Combining dishes that Babuji encountered in his journey. From Bengali bites, to street stall favourites of Mumbai, and traditional homely Pakistani dishes. By the way, we eat with our hands, cos that’s the Babuji way.

Eating with your hands #babujistyle

That’s right, we fully embrace eating with your hands not only because it’s a historic and cultural thing, but because we believe eating is a sensual activity and touch is part of the experience along with the taste and aroma of the food, so don’t be alarmed when you don’t see cutlery on your table! Try it, you may even love the experience!

NOTE: Cutlery is available upon request (although frowned upon)
