A new Indian restaurant is to open on Ecclesall Road in Sheffield

The restaurant will serve authentic Indian cuisine with a clean menu.

The as-yet-unnamed restaurant will open on the site of the former Peter Hill Art Gallery and feature a limited range of dishes to showcase an authentic, home-cooked Indian style.

Zak Rehman has teamed up with his longtime friend Imran Malik for their first joint venture and the couple are excited to spice up the Ecclesall Road restaurant scene.

The new restaurant will be housed in a former art gallery on Ecclesall Road.

Zak said: “It will be apna style (cooked in an authentic Asian tradition), good home cooking and good curry. If you came to my house and wanted a curry, that’s how these dishes taste.

“We’re not going to have 10,000 dishes, we could have eight or ten. We’re perfecting a more refined menu. There’s a hunger for that on Ecclesall Road. When I decided to open the restaurant, people came to me and told me it should be home style.

“I met Imran ten years ago when I was working on renovating his property and we became friends. We are like brothers now, we do everything together but this is our first joint venture.

The restaurant is expected to open this month.

The venue, which Zak hopes to be ready to open in two months, will have outdoor seating and will be fully licensed.

Zak added: “We are renovating the place, but we will retain aspects of what it used to be like a gallery. It will have a vintage look and provide a pleasant and relaxing ambiance. It will be cozy with dim lights, and nice and cool. We target professionals and an older generation.

“The restaurant will help enhance the diversity of the food scene in the region.”

The new venue will join a host of curry houses in Sheffield, but Zak is confident its focus on a curated menu and traditional taste will be a winning formula.
