Description: DABBAWAL - UK STREET FOOD PIONEERS All home-cooked, nutritious dishes that feed the body, and comfort the soul. Genuine Mumbai Street Food bringing complete satisfaction to those who want their food freshly prepared, and utterly authentic. True to the metropolitan roots of Mumbai’s dabbawalas, we opened our first restaurant in Newcastle’s city centre, upon the cobbles of High Bridge. Along with authentic dishes, the retro styling of High Bridge creates a cosy cocoon of traditional Mumbai chic.

My husband told me about this place opening and suggested we go for lunch, I didn't actually realize it was only the first week it was opened and hadn't even had it's 'official' party yet. Was unbelievably impressed with everything! The staff were very helpful and friendly, with only a couple very minor hiccups that can only be down to just being opened and they were quickly corrected with no fuss. They took a lot of pride in what they were doing.
The food is gorgeous, very nice to have something different in the Indian food market, with fresh, light flavors. You can choose to have several different dishes tapas style, or have a traditional main. They also have an amazing selection of cocktails that would shame a lot of bars!
I actually can't wait to go back here again and can't suggest that you give it a try enough, really hope this is the start of a very successful business for the owners.

This place is so cool, nice staff, very tasy food and very healthy too.
They use the best of ingredients and no ghee/calrified butter.
