Cyrus Todiwala is to open his first restaurant outside London. Todiwala will launch Tandem, a “celebration of authentic Indian cuisine and cocktail mixology” at Highcross shopping centre in Leicester. It will be Todiwala’s fifth restaurant in total, including Café Spice Namasté and Mr Todiwala’s Kitchen.
Tandem will launch in late August seating 150 diners and featuring five distinct spaces, including a chef’s table for executive dining and a rooftop terrace. The kitchen will use traditional Indian cooking techniques using ethically and sustainably sourced British produce.
Todiwala said: “I have always wanted to expand my restaurants outside London, with Tandem having been in the pipeline for a long time. The foodie scene in Leicester is taking flight and we’re excited to launch Tandem in such an exciting and vibrant city. Tandem is an exciting concept that offers something different to my other restaurants but takes inspiration from what we know our customers love. It was important to me to fully showcase the beauty of Indian cuisine by using traditional cooking techniques and influences from my personal experience.”
