Bundobust to open 5th restaurant in Birmingham this summer

Highly acclaimed Indian street food and craft beer specialist, Bundobust is set to expand with the opening of Bundobust Birmingham in Summer ’23.

The fifth restaurant from the award-winning Northern brand, Bundobust Birmingham will open in the heart of the city centre on Bennetts Hill, serving contemporary Indian street food and craft beer.

Bundobust Birmingham will be housed in a beautiful Grade II-listed building at 38 Bennetts Hill, designed in the 1860s by renowned local architect Yeoville Thomason.

Split across two floors, the Birmingham restaurant will have a more intimate, pub-like feel than its Northern counterparts. The building’s Georgian architectural charm and original features will be offset by Bundobust’s vibrant colour palette. Guests can expect plenty of booths in the building’s snug spaces and cosy corners, as well as beer hall-style seating.

Bundobust is both human and dog-friendly and warmly welcoming to all – bookings will be taken, but walk-ins will always be welcome.

Bundobust’s Gujarati street food and craft beer, described by food critic Jay Rayner as “uncompromising and self-confident and, above all else, clever”, offers modern takes on street food favourites.

Guests can expect dishes including Okra Fries (dusted in black salt and mango powder), Gobi Manchurian (Indo-Chinese vegetable pakoras tossed in umami-hot sauce), as well as creative takes on classics including Vada Pav, Rajma, Tarka Dhal, Pav Bhaji, Chaat and more.

Contemporary, playful, and affordable, all dishes are priced between £2.50 and £7.50, with chef’s choice combos starting from £33 for 2 people, as well as the Lunch Express menu (available Mon – Fri, 12pm – 4pm) offering 2 dishes for £9.

On the taps guests will find Bundobust’s own brews from their Manchester brewery, alongside the very best local craft beers and innovative styles from breweries around the world. Bundobust Birmingham’s opening tap line-up will feature collaborative brews from Brummie breweries, including Attic.

Beyond beer, Bundobust offers creative cocktails with an Indian twist (think Banana & Cardamom Old Fashioned and Coconut & Mango Mojito), plus wines, chais and softs, including lassis, coolers and sodas.

The Bundobust team are busy getting to know their neighbours and have planned a series of pop-ups ahead of the summer opening, including collabs with The Wilderness, The Colmore and Attic.

Co-Founder Mayur Patel shared, 'Bundobust was born out of a shared passion for Indian street food and boundary-pushing beer. A decade on, we’re excited to be building a new home in Birmingham, a city with a rich Indian heritage, as well as a world-class indie brewing scene – we couldn’t be in better company in our new neighbourhood.”
