Khana Bombay Café, which opened in Headingly this month, is totally different from any Indian restaurant you’ve seen before.

This is not your typical ‘curry house’ and there’s not one picture menu in sight; in fact, Khana Bombay Café blows all stereotypes  right out of the Tandoor with its quirky, stripped back vintage decor, casual all day-dining and cosmopolitan vibe.

Having grown up in a family of restauranteurs and being of Indian descent, Adam Karim understands the importance of authenticity when it comes to food and a great dining experience.

Adam, founder of Rosso restaurant (co-founded by Rio Ferdinand), and owner of Don Giovanni, Manchester’s longest serving Italian restaurant, make the opening of Khana Bombay Café a highly anticipated one.

Khana incorporates the sense of the Bombay community in food” says Adam, so we can come to expect a relaxed, friendly atmosphere, and mouthwatering fragrant cuisine. On the menu are classic Indian staples such as the Ruby Karim which is more commonly known as a Makhani curry from just £6.50. Also on the menu are small Indian tapas style items to whole and half grilled Chickens as well as Lamb Chops, all smothered in Indian spices and charcoal grilled in the open kitchen. Expect to find delights such as apple samosas and real, traditional Indian food which really set Khana Bombay Café apart from what we would expect at most UK Indian restaurants.

As well as an extensive restaurant area, there is also a laid-back lounge bar serving handcrafted cocktails designed by Leeds’ The Hedonist Project and local craft beer. Make sure to ask for one of the Karram boards to play with; a traditional Indian game like table top pool that will have everyone vying for a place on the cafe’s leaderboard and as if our expectations for this venue could not be exceeded further, there’ll even be a DJ taking care of music from Thursday- Saturday night.
