Bundobust was established in 2014, in a a partnership between Mark Husak of Bradford’s Sparrow Bier Café and Mayur Patel, owner of Drighlington’s Prashad vegetarian restaurant - which found fame as a finalist on Gordon Ramsay’s Great British Restaurant.
In its two years in business, Bundobust, which is located on Mill Hill in the city centre, has won the award for ‘Best Cage Bar’ in Yorkshire’s Oliver restaurant awards, and received a shortlisiting in the ‘Best Street Food’ category.
The entrepreneurial duo behind the popular restaurant are now setting their sights on Manchester, where the latest addition to the Bundobust family will be located in Clayton House, 61 Piccadilly in the heart of the city centre and will seat 150 people.
The venue will undergo a £250,000 fit out and once complete it will bring 20 new jobs to the city.
Bundobust owner, Mark Husak, said: "Our expansion into Manchester is really exciting for us. There are already some great operators offering interesting Indian food and we’re looking forward to adding to exciting the Manchester scene and bringing something unique to the city."
Bundobust was advised by Yorkshire law firm Gordons on the new venue.
Gordons partner, Simon Mydlowski, said: “The expansion of Bundobust is testimony to the innovative vision of Mark and Mayur. Their concept has won them lots of fans in Yorkshire and I’m sure Manchester food-lovers will be just as enamoured and the restaurant will prove to be a resounding success.”
Husak added: “We worked with Simon and the team at Gordons when we launched in Leeds and they have played an important advisory role in our growth.
“Their approach is friendly and they have given us clear, pragmatic advice which has helped us to achieve our goal of opening a second restaurant in Manchester.”
