It’s been a tough time for all involved in the world of hospitality, but that hasn’t stopped some businesses from pushing forward. North Warwickshire restaurant Cafe Simla has relaunched with a brand new name and style.
Now Simla Restaurant, the restaurant in Dordon, on the A5 between Tamworth and Atherstone, offers a new dining experience aimed at taking account of the changes that Covid-19 has brought to eating out. There are early sittings to account for the 10pm curfew and also the addition of the Zenna Bar to help you feel like you’re ‘out out’ whilst staying in the same venue.
Café Simla first opened its doors in 2001 after Proprieter Mo Nanu spent years indulging in family recipes and working in a relative’s restaurant. Despite being a firm favourite with regular customers, the team decided to undergo a significant revamp, including the venue bar and menu.
The inspiration has stayed the same, bringing Pan-Indian flavours from areas including North India and the coastal cuisines of the Southern States, including everything from Malai Salmon to Tandoor Palak Paneer and Bhajiya Pao.
The new venue combines intimate dining in a spacious restaurant, while the new Zenna Bar brings a bit of glitz and glamour, with talented mixologists on hand to make everything from a classic Pornstar Martini to the Zenna special of Rooster Rojo Tequila, Cointreau, Lime and Passion Fruit.
Mo Nanu says: “With Simla being the only restaurant in the vicinity to serve authentic Indian cooking, this is truly our unique selling point, setting us apart from existing Bangladeshi cuisines in the area.
“Our customers are constantly at the forefront of our minds, and we’re so excited to be able to deliver what they have been wanting for the past few years – the Zenna Bar.”
