The opening date for Birmingham’s new Indian street food & craft beer specialists Bundobust has been confirmed.
It will be the fifth UK venue for the vegetarian and vegan Gujarati street food company. Bundobust’s street food and craft beer has even been decribed as “uncompromising and self-confident and, above all else, clever,” by food critic Jay Rayner. Split across two floors, the new Birmingham restaurant, is set to have a intimate, pub-like feel, so a bit like its predecessors at this fab Brum location.
But this time the building’s Georgian architectural charm and original features will be offset by Bundobust’s vibrant colour palette. There will be booths in snug spaces and cosy corners for seating as well as a beer hall-style seating, and it’s also dog-friendly and welcomes both bookings and walk-ins.
‘Bundo’, as it’s also known, first opened in Leeds and has expanded to various locations in Northern England - as well as Manchester, there’s one in Liverpool. So the Birmingham one will be the first step further down south for the company. BirminghamWorld even went to Bundobust’s Manchester brewery to see what Brummies can expect from the restaurant.
When will Bundo’s Brum restaurant open?
Bundobust Birmingham will open its doors at 38 Bennetts Hill at 5pm on Friday 2nd June.
What food is on offer?
Guests can expect dishes including Okra Fries (dusted in black salt and mango powder), Gobi Manchurian (Indo-Chinese vegetable pakoras tossed in umami-hot sauce), as well as creative takes on classics including Vada Pav, Rajma, Tarka Dhal, Pav Bhaji, Chaat and more.
All dishes are priced between £2.50 and £7.50, with chef’s choice combos starting from £33 for 2 people, as well as the Lunch Express menu (available Mon – Fri, 12pm – 4pm) offering 2 dishes for £9. On the taps guests will find Bundobust’s own brews from their Manchester brewery, alongside the very best local craft beers and innovative styles from breweries around the world.
