Indian food brand to open its fourth restaurant, creating 50 jobs

Following the success of its Nottingham, Leicester and Birmingham eateries, Indian restaurant tamatanga will open its doors in Leeds this month with bookings now open.

Scheduled to open at 5pm on 16 June, tamatanga’s next base will be located on The Headrow in central Leeds.

It will feature eye-catching interiors similar to vivacious designs seen in the brand’s other locations, all of which take inspiration from the streets of India. 

The food menu offers a mix of both the familiar and the slightly less expected and many classic dishes updated with a modern twist.

The tamatanga thali has become something of a signature dish, comprising a large variety platter offering a choice of one or two different curries from the menu. The rest of the dishes are created and changed daily by a kitchen team using local, seasonal ingredients. 

Diners can also expect cocktails ranging from the fruity Peachy Blinder to the Wray’s Sorbet which blends tequila, strawberry cream soda with Wray and Nephew overproof rum.

tamatanga creative director, Mona Kular, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to be bringing our food to a city as vibrant as Leeds this month.

“Our fresh, homely, and very real approach to cooking is perfect for lunch, dinner and anything in between. From warming curries to flavourful salads and heavenly small plates, there’s something for everyone.

“We’re really looking forward to welcoming our first Leeds diners.”

The new restaurant has 160 covers (40 in the bar and 120 in the restaurant) and will create 50 jobs.
