Cyrus Todiwala earlier today announced his fifth restaurant alongside Café Spice Namasté and Mr Todiwala’s Kitchen, in his first move outside of London.
In late August, Todiwala will be launching Tandem, a celebration of authentic Indian cuisine and cocktail mixology located in a picturesque and decorative Grade II listed building in the heart of Leicester city.
Speaking to H&C News Todiwala explained why he’s expanding his restaurant chain reach: “I always wanted to expand my restaurants outside of London with Tandem having been in the pipeline for a long time and I’m thrilled to bring the vision to life in Leicester. The foodie scene in Leicester is taking flight and we’re excited to launch Tandem in such an exciting and vibrant city.”
The ‘decadent’ restaurant and bar will offer accessible luxury, with the interior taking inspiration from both Portuguese and Goan influences. The heavily anticipated restaurant will seat 150 diners, but the structure and striking interior will allow for an intimate experience with five distinct spaces, including an exclusive chef’s table for executive dining and a stunning rooftop terrace.
Tandem will remain true to Todiwala’s Indian routes and beliefs with the menu carefully crafted using traditional Indian cooking techniques and ethically and sustainably sourced British produce, ensuring each dish is fresh and beautifully presented. The unique menu blends traditional flavours that span the Indian subcontinent with ethically sourced, primarily British produce.
“Tandem is an exciting concept which offers something different to my other restaurants but takes inspiration from what we know our customers love. It was important to me to fully showcase the beauty of Indian cuisine by using traditional cooking techniques and influences from my personal experience.”
With Café Spice Namasté a firm favourite of H&C News, not just to eat in but also to host events, we very much look forward to visiting Tandem soon. We wish Cyrus, Pervin and family all the very best with Tandem, we are sure it will be a monumental success following in the footsteps of Café Spice Namasté.
