Babul Opens Second Site

4th September 2021

North east-based Indian and Bangladeshi restaurant Babul’s is to double up. The company, which has a restaurant in Barnard Castle, has secured the former PizzaExpress site in Skinnergate in Darlington.

Babul’s claims it is a “homage to the vibrant dishes across the regions of the Indian subcontinent and a tribute to one of the best Indian chefs, our father – Rafique Uddin Babul – to ever step foot in the United Kingdom.”

Babul’s opened, what was previously Spice Island, in Barnard Castle in 1995 with a “mission to revolutionise the way the public perceived Indian and Bangladeshi cuisine; using recipes and techniques that were brought straight from our home.”

Babul’s offers curry, Buddah bowls and Bangla burgers alongside coffee and cocktails.
