Exciting Indian restaurant Raja Monkey will open in a second location in Birmingham after their success in Hall Green. However, it will be replacing a popular restaurant that opened its doors in an upscale Birmingham neighbourhood in 2021.
Raja Monkey with its informal, vibrant, fun and colourful ambience is an Indian neighbourhood cafe-restaurant. It offers classics you’d find in an inner-city cafe in downtown Delhi or Bombay like pav bhaji, keema pav, dosas, and more.
BirminghamWorld has previously visited Raja Monkey in Hall Green and recommends it to anyone looking to try a new Indian restaurant in Birmingham. Run by Lasan Group, the restaurant will now open a second restaurant in the upscale neighourhood of Harborne. They will open their doors for dress rehearsals from June 1.
A spokesperson for the Lasan Group said: “There’s already one Raja Monkey in Hall Green and, we’ve been itching to launch this dining concept in Harborne for so long; after all, we’ve built our reputation on offering the true taste of India. Now, the Harbonites can get closer to the real India at Raja Monkey and enjoy exciting flavour combinations and true, value-for-money Indian deliciousness.”
The new restaurant will be located on 42-44 High Street, Harborne, Birmingham and will replace Estado Da India, also run by Lasan Group. Estado Da India, a tapas restaurant, offered Portuguese Indian food popular in the Union Territory of Goa and the west coast of India.
Located on the west coast of India, Goa was a Portuguese colony from 1510 to 1961. One can still find Portuguese-influenced architecture and food in Goa, one of the most popular spots in India for beach vacations.
For the launch of the new Raja Monkey restaurant, they are offering 50% off up until June 11 for those who sign up to the guest list. You can sign up for the guest list on the Talkbox website.
