Bundobust to open a new restaurant in Manchester – with its own brewery


Indian street food restaurant Bundobust has today revealed the first details of a second Manchester site, which will also house the restaurant group’s brand new brewery.

Following the success of their Leeds original, Bundobust first ventured across The Pennines in December 2016 with a 4,000 square foot branch on Piccadilly.

Following on from its successful Piccadilly branch, the unique Indian street food and craft beer restaurant has announced plans to open another 4000 sq ft site in the city, with space for 120-140 diners.

The new restaurant, whose location is yet to be revealed, will also house nine fermenting vessels that can produce 28,000 pints of beer a month when it opens in early 2020.

The new Manchester branch will feature the brewing tanks at street level so customers can see the beer being made as they dine.

Bundobust’s core beer range has been brewed by Northern Monk for a while now, and the new site will look at specials and one-off collaborations with some of the best breweries in the world already confirmed.

The restaurant group’s take on vibrant, wallet-friendly Indian street food, craft beer and cocktails, served in a friendly communal dining space, is a simple yet winning combination.

Their ever impressive meat-free menu takes centre stage, with a menu featuring classic such as Vada Pav ( mashed up cauliflower, potato and peas flavoured with garam masala and served with a toasted, spiced brioche bun), Okra Fries, Bundo Chaat and so much more.

“It has been a great year for us at Bundobust as we celebrate our fifth birthday,” says co-founder Marko Husaks.

“We feel no-one does Indian food and beer combined better than Bundobust, and opening our on site brew house will set us apart from other Indian restaurants.

“Over the last five years we have been introducing our guests to the vast and varied world of beer with our own collaborative brews and those from some of the best breweries in the world.

“Now it’s time to take it up a notch.”

Bundobust will reveal more details over the next few months about the new Manchester branch, which is scheduled to open in early 2020, including the new location and head brewer.
