Khana Bombay Café opens in Headingley

Khana Bombay Café, a new Indian-style restaurant from northern-based restaurateur Adam Karim, has opened today in Headingley in Leeds.

Located in the city's North Lane, the 120-seat site is seeking to confound stereotypes surrounding Indian restaurants and has aimed for a vintage, casual and "cosmopolitan vibe".

As well as the dining room, Khana Bombay Café has a lounge bar area serving local craft beer, "Desi" tea, and cocktails designed by the team at Leeds-based bar Hedonist Project.

There will be a DJ set in the bar from Thursday to Saturday evenings, and the site will also offer "carrom boards" for guests to use, a traditional, 18th-century Indian game described as similar to table-top pool.

Karim, who is of Indian descent, is the co-founder with footballer Rio Ferdinand of the restaurant Rosso, and the owner of Italian site Don Giovanni, both of which are in Manchester.

Commenting on the new opening, Karim said: "Khana incorporates the sense of the Bombay community in food."
