Tipu Sultan reveals expansion plans

17th December 2018


Pakistani restaurant brand Tipu Sultan is to convert the former Fat Cat bar in Sherwood, Nottingham,  to create its third site.  The rapidly expanding group has restaurants in Birmingham and Leicester and is also opening venues in Manchester, London, Luton and Bradford.


Fat Cat has been empty for more than a year.  Plans have been submitted to Nottingham City Council to increase the size of the car park at the site and install large umbrellas in the former beer garden.  The proposals show booths for seating downstairs and male and female prayer rooms upstairs.


Tipu Sultan is named after the 18th century ruler of Mysore and promises a “majestic dining experience worthy of an emperor”.


Offering a full halal menu, Tipu Sultan’s signature dish is Sultani chops (marinated and chargrilled mutton chops) with other mains including peshwari chicken. The brand operates a strict no-alcohol policy.
