Mumbai Street Food Restaurant opens its doors 

A new Indian Street Food Restaurant, aptly called Mumbai Street Food, has opened in Assembly Street, Leith.

 Occupying the former site of the Kublai Khan restaurant, Mumbai Street Food is owned and run by the same business owners who have a new fine dining Indian in Atholl Place in the West End, called Mumbai Diners Club.

 The restaurant, offering a rich and varied selection of Indian street food from all the continent's regions, includes a dining area with hand-carved  tables from Bangladesh and a colourful bar area featuring exotic tiger statues and elaborate tapestry chairs.
 
The recent soft launch of the eatery saw potential customers from businesses nearby, together with local residents, treated to a display of traditional Indian dancing, together with the opportunity to sample a selection of dishes and mocktails. 
 
"We are delighted to open this exciting new restaurant which enjoys a fantastic location here in Leith, with many local offices and places of interest nearby, attracting a hungry lunchtime and evening crowd,” said co-owner of the business, Prayas Chaudhary.
 
"High quality Indian Street Food is very much in vogue at the moment, freshly prepared with authentic ingredients to provide a delicious meal, whether sampling a few dishes tapas style or choosing a larger dish. It originated in Mumbai, which we are referencing here in the look and feel of the restaurant,” he continued.
 
"Hopefully our customers can get a feeling of the sensory experience that visiting the street stalls in Mumbai is all about,” finished Prayas, "We also wanted to make our menu as varied, colourful and fun as the restaurant itself.”
 
As it grows in popularity, Mumbai Street Food sees potential in tie-ups with bus tour companies as a stop off for hungry tourists and visitors, and wants to further utilise its mobile street stall for events in the City.
