popular Indian restaurant tamatanga is set to open in Leeds.
Indian restaurant tamatanga is set to open in Leeds. Following the success of the Nottingham, Leicester and Birmingham eateries, tamatanga, loved for its hearty, home-style Indian food, has announced its fourth opening – bringing the same successful recipe to Leeds.
Scheduled for early summer, tamatanga’s next eatery will be located at The Light on The Headrow. The new restaurant will feature fun, eye catching interiors similar to the vivacious designs seen in their other award-winning locations, all of which take inspiration from the vibrant streets of India.
The mouth-watering food menu offers a mix of both the familiar and the slightly less expected and many classic dishes updated with a modern twist. Everything is made using real, homely Indian recipes served up with speed and minimal fuss or fanfare.
The tamatanga thali has become something of a signature dish – this large variety platter offers the choice of one or two different curries from the menu whilst the rest of the dishes are created and changed daily by an expert all Indian kitchen team using local, seasonal ingredients.
Another menu must try is the moreish tama chips, famed for their perfectly crisp coating and a secret blend of tamatanga spices which have made them a firm favourite since 2008.
The menu has been carefully crafted to include a wide variety of meat, veggie, vegan and gluten friendly dishes. The salads and grill plates pack a punch and come loaded with healthful ingredients such as butternut squash, quinoa, avocado and chickpeas.
A provocative range of carefully crafted cocktails is on hand to cool things down, ranging from the fruity and fabulous Peachy Blinder to the adventurous Wray’s Sorbet which blends tequila, strawberry cream soda and Wray and Nephew overproof rum to great effect.
As well as enticing customers with its refreshing take on Indian food, tamatanga has built a loyal and diverse following based on its laid-back, fun vibe, and exceptional value. Daytime deals on food until 4pm and two-for-one cocktails every day from 12-7pm have allowed the brand to appeal to everyone from students to families and couples.
tamatanga Creative Director, Mona Kular, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to be bringing our food to a city as vibrant as Leeds. 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.’
“And with incredible cocktails, great music, and a seriously cool vibe, tamatanga makes any occasion a great one. We’re really looking forward to welcoming our first Leeds diners. tamatanga is the place to eat and drink Indian style.’’
The new restaurant has 160 covers (40 in the bar and 120 in the restaurant) and will create 50 new jobs.
