Television chef Cyrus Todiwala is to open his fifth restaurant, and his first outside London, at Highcross in Leicester.

Tandem will open in late August, and has been described as a celebration of authentic Indian cuisine and cocktail mixology.

It will seat 150 diners, with the interior influences coming from both Portugal and Goa.

Todiwala said: “I have always wanted to expand my restaurants outside of London with Tandem having been in the pipeline for a long time and I’m thrilled to bring the vision to life in Leicester. The foodie scene in Leicester is taking flight and we’re excited to launch Tandem in such an exciting and vibrant city.”

“Tandem is an exciting concept which offers something different to my other restaurants but takes inspiration from what we know our customers love. It was important to me to fully showcase the beauty of Indian cuisine by using traditional cooking techniques and influences from my personal experience.”

The new site joins his other locations, including Café Spice Namasté and Mr Todiwala’s Kitchen.
