Indian grab-and-go concept Pali Kitchen has opened in the City of London.
The opening follows a six-figure funding package from HSBC. A £300,000 term loan, combined with additional investment from owner Anu Kathuria, has funded the restaurant fit-out, enabling the purchase of new equipment for the Asian-inspired eatery in Bow Lane.
The menu combines classic Indian dishes with modern cooking techniques and locally sourced ingredients. Dishes include lamb yukhni, a traditional mild Kashmiri curry, and kati rolls, which originate in Kolkata. Drinks feature a berry and chilli smoothie called The Devil’s Breath, chocolate and raspberry lassi and jackfruit smoothie. Kathuria said: “We have designed our menus to be perfect grab-and-go lunches for customers in the city looking for authentic Indian spice and flavour with a modern twist.” Dale Allen, HSBC’s area director for business banking in west London, added: “Anu and his family have a passion for Asian cuisine and we were delighted to be able to support the opening of Pali Kitchen’s new restaurant in Bow Lane. We can’t wait to see what’s next for this exciting food brand.”
