AN INDIAN restaurant has opened in Warwick and has already established a firm identity with the county town.
Owned by brothers Mashuk and Bokul Miah, the restaurant in Castle Street has been named Jambavan.
Mashuk Miah, who lives in Leamington and has been 25 years in the business with restaurants in Leicester, said: “We chose this unusual name for the restaurant because Jambavan is the King of Bears in an Indian epic and it establishes our link with the county town, as Warwickshire’s emblem is the Bear and Ragged Staff.
“We have 70 covers and will be sourcing local fresh produce and stocking a variety of local craft ales. In addition to our Indian meals, we will also be serving sandwiches and snacks in the future – and creating some new cocktails, alongside the more traditional ones.”
Nick Watts, a commercial solicitor from Blythe Liggins who negotiated the lease, was sure the new restaurant would prove a success.
He added: “Warwick and Leamington have become very popular with diners from all over the region for their quality eateries, and there is no doubt that Jambavan will add to that list of successful restaurants.”
