Samyukta Nair and Chef Rohit Ghai, the duo behind Mayfair's Jamavar (voted Best Newcomer at Harden's London Restaurant Awards 2017) have launched a second London venture. Inspired by Dabbawalas â€“ the institution of men who use Mumbai's railways to deliver home-cooked meals across the city â€“ Rohit's menu will recreate the family recipes within two dining rooms which reflect the bygone railways of Bombay and the Art Deco buildings which surrounded them.

Mumbai is a city built on traditions, filled by an endless influx of dreamers, working professionals, and those seeking their fame and fortune; A true melting pot. In one moment you can be in old world Bombay and the turn of a street corner will thrust you into an urban amalgamation. In this complex, bustling metropolis, the tiffin carriers are a constant, bridging the distance between work and home, between different cultures and diverse regional cuisines, with their near-clockwork precision.
Traditionally towered boxes brimming with food made in the homes of the working community, tiffins are transported to their intended recipient through a complex route of local trains, handcarts and bicycles. The path of each tin is carefully navigated by the tiffin carriers, with each being marked by an individual code; a carefully crafted system which has been at the centre of day to day life in Mumbai for decades.
Bombay Bustle captures the essence of Mumbai, our love of home comforts alongside our rapid pace of life, both existing side by side. The restaurant is a place just as well suited to a leisurely dinner with friends as a quick lunch for one, always inspired by Mumbai's diverse flavours, and home style cooking
The menu sees re-creations of some of the city's most loved dishes alongside family recipes, from Misal pao topped with potato salli, to Kolhapuri spiced spit roasted chicken.
Designed by Fabled Studio, the space reflects erstwhile Bombay's train system, built as an offshoot of the first railway in British India, and vibrant art deco buildings juxtaposed with the organized chaos of modern Mumbai.
