Bindas Eatery – meaning free spirit and without inhibitions in Punjabi – is now serving delicious Indian street food, inspired by the dishes sold at foodie hubs throughout India. The exciting food menu offers an eclectic celebration of Indian food, taking you on a flavour tour of the hustle and bustle of India – from Punjabi, Delhi, Mumbai, Kerala and Jaipur served in traditional round hammered platter. The restaurant’s menu caters for meat, vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free customers, so whatever your tastes, there’s something for everyone.
As for the space, it pays homage to the wilderness and vibrancy of India. The decor sees the iconic auto rickshaw covered in paisley, with colours, textiles, foliage and a clever use of parrots helping to create an eclectic scene that celebrates India’s beauty and versatility.
Bindas Eatery is the debut from founder Mehak Kansal. Mehak was awarded the 2018 Westfield Food Entrepreneur Award which saw her scoop the prize of mentorship from renowned Spanish chef Omar Allibhoy of Tapas Revolution, and a pop-up eatery at the flagship site in Shepherd’s Bush, which was a sell-out success. She won the judges over by making her signature Butter chicken Bomb Burger made with a marinated & spiced chicken thigh, melted emmental cheese smothered in a secret makhani sauce. The pop-up at Westfield White City was held in February 2019 for 2 weeks. The word Bindas, literally translated means ‘to be without limitations and inhibitions’, this best describes Mehak.
