Stemming from my love for authentic flavours and innovative and imaginative cooking techniques, I am truly passionate about being able to share a fresh perspective on Indian cuisine. OFFERING a modern approach to traditional cooking. I look to break down the conventional barriers, and both inspire and educate people in Indian cuisine. My dishes reflect my innovative style, and i enjoy fusing local and seasonal produce with global influences, the result of which is a world away from Birmingham’s renowned Baltis.
