Indian street food and craft beer hall brand Bundobust is heading to Birmingham for its fifth opening.

Set to launch in the summer, Bundobust Birmingham will be housed in a Grade II listed building on Bennetts Hill, designed in the 1860s by renowned local architect Yeoville Thomason.

Split across two floors, the new site is described as having ‘a more intimate, pub-like feel’ than its other Northern counterparts.

Bundobust, which takes its name from an Anglo-Indian word that means binding or coming together, was founded in 2013 by friends Mayur Patel and Marko Husak and currently operates sites in Leeds and Liverpool, as well as two locations in Manchester.

As with the group’s other outposts, Bundobust Birmingham will serve a selection of Gujarati vegetarian street food dishes alongside a wide range of craft beers.

Signature food options include the okra fries dusted in black salt and mango powder; Indo-Chinese vegetable pakoras tossed in umami-hot sauce; and vada pav, a deep-fried mashed potato ball in a bun served with red and green chutneys.

On the taps, guests will find Bundobust’s own brews from their Manchester brewery, alongside the very best local craft beers and innovative styles from breweries around the world.

“Bundobust was born out of a shared passion for Indian street food and boundary-pushing beer,” says Patel.

“A decade on, we’re excited to be building a new home in Birmingham, a city with a rich Indian heritage, as well as a world-class indie brewing scene – we couldn’t be in better company in our new neighbourhood.”

Patel and Husak were named People of the Year at Restaurant​’s annual R200 Awards back in November​.
