Indian street food concept Indico has secured a unit at The Mailbox in Birmingham, its second iteration from multiple operator Faheem Badur.

The restaurant, which follows a debut in Solihull, is inspired by North India, and will feature chaats and curries, vegetarian and lunch options, and a vegan menu.

Indico will join Gas Street Social, Côte Brasserie, Miller & Carter and Harvey Nichols Brasserie at the canal-side scheme.

Badur also operates Jacq’s, a three-strong chicken concept, as well as Superiors, and Perios Chicken.

He said: “We first opened our restaurant three years ago and since then have made a name for ourselves for serving high-quality Indian street food in a unique, artistic atmosphere. We aim to take our diners beyond the traditional Indian restaurant experience to a place that’s warm, colourful and exotic – just like India.

“We’ve grown in popularity quicker than we thought possible, making now the ideal time for our next venture. Quality, authenticity and overall service is at the heart of everything we do and we feel a real connection with the Mailbox in this respect. We’re proud to be opening our next eatery in such an established and iconic city centre location.”

Shelley Sandzer, Nash Bond and Avison Young are leasing agents for the Mailbox.
