December 2016 saw Leeds’ critically acclaimed ‘beer & Indian’ joint open its doors in Manchester. In a basement on Piccadilly, Bundobust is a stone’s throw from the city’s independent Northern Quarter. We’ve brought our award-winning recipe for success over the Pennines, and are quickly ranking as one of the city’s best casual dining restaurants.

What we do is simple – Gujarat-inspired street food and the world’s best craft beer, from both local and international breweries.

Jay Rayner, the Observer’s food critic, reviewed the restaurant just months after opening, and we think he puts it best: “vibrant Indian street food served with craft beer in a friendly communal space…Why has no one done this before?”

Christmas 2019 Charity Partners

Each Bundobust venue donates £1 from the sale of every Bhaji Butty to selected charity partners which we change throughout the year to spread the love.

From November 1st - January 31st we're working with organisations in each city that tackle homelessness and promote and enable independent living.

In Leeds, we're working with Canopy Housing.

Canopy is a small organisation based in Harehills. We believe everyone deserves a safe home and the opportunity to find work.

Working alongside our volunteers, people at risk of homelessness transform empty, run-down properties into homes which they get to move into, for as long as they wish. This Self-Help is at the heart of what we do.

Volunteers and Self-Helpers get the chance to learn construction skills, build confidence, uplift the local community, and improve their chances of finding work all whilst helping eradicate homelessness.

in Manchester, we're working with Mustard Tree.

For 25 years Mustard Tree has been there for people in need. With your support they can be there to clothe, feed, house, reassure, comfort, hug when appropriate, listen, protect, and support. They explain, sign post, forgive and train people to learn new skills. They build confidence, celebrate success, help people find somewhere safe to live and secure a job. Ultimately they help people to feel hope again.
By choosing the Bhaji Butty today, you are making a big difference to someone’s life by helping fund Mustard Tree to be there for those in need.

an in Liverpool, we're working with The Whitechapel Centre.

"The Whitechapel Centre is a leading homeless and housing charity for the Liverpool region. We work with people who are sleeping rough, living in hostels or struggling to manage their accommodation.

We provide hot meals, showers and laundry facilities. We manage high quality supported accommodation services at our family centres, shared accommodation and private rented bond scheme.
