YESTERDAY, award-winning Indian street food restaurant and craft beer bar Bundobust opened in Manchester.

The restaurant itself can be found on the outskirts of Piccadilly Gardens, next to Subway.

The entire menu is vegetarian and it is also accompanied by multiple vegan options.

Bundobust doesn’t operate on a table service basis, rather customer’s order at the bar whenever they are ready. It adds to the very relaxed atmosphere in the building.

Although the brand serves street food they still have a wide variety of specialist craft beers and interesting cocktails.

They also offer classics such as the Red Snapper, a gin twist on the original tomato juice based vodka drink, Bloody Mary; As well as prosecco based bellinis, boozy chai teas and a wine list that is vegan-friendly.

The food itself is served in little cardboard pots and on cardboard plates – adding further to the street style that the brand promotes.

There is a lunchtime offer available from Monday to Friday (12pm-4pm) on certain small dishes, as well as weekend brunch offers and combos ideas starting for 2 people and going up to 6.

You would very easily be able to order only two small plates and be full here – the onion bhaji’s were bursting with flavour and the Tarka Dhal with rice goes perfectly with either a flatbread or steamed rice dumplings; both of which are under £2.00.

The interior of the restaurant itself consists of cosy booths and long tables, similar to those found at places like wagamama’s. The colour scheme includes bright oranges and blues – providing a warm feel, with bold prints and typography along the walls.

Overall, the pricing of the food is fair, portions are a good size and the food itself tastes amazing. The atmosphere is very relaxed and casual, perfect for grabbing food alone or going with a big group of people.

The full menu can be found here.
