Owner of Indian restaurant Bombay Street, Swapnil Pradhan, invited loveashford along to visit the new restaurant location on Bank Street in Ashford town centre.
After originally being concerned about the current road-works that are happening on Bank Street and how the maintenance would effect their family business, Swapnil and his wife, Maithily, have stepped up to the mark and are working hard to promote their growing business and bigger, better premises.
Swapnil grew up in central Bombay and learn’t to cook from a young age under the influences of his mother and brother.
He met his wife, Maithily when the pair came to the UK to study in the Isle of Man. Little did they know they had both been born in the same hospital, lived in the same town in Bombay and had even attended the same school; never meeting until they finally came across one another on an island in the Irish Sea.
Both Swapnil and Maithily worked as managers for KFC restaurants for nine years, including the Dover and Ashford branches. They made the official move to Ashford in 2010 where they began chasing their dream to open their own authentic Indian restaurant.
Bombay Street was opened to the public on 27th February 2014 and immediately became a popular favourite to those with a taste for authentic Indian food and street food. The restaurant recently reopened just a stones throw away from their original, smaller cafe but this time with the scope to serve more excited customers than ever before.
Bombay Street offers traditional, home cooked food and a menu laden with street-food style snacks, lunch-time bites, platters and dishes suitable for a tasty evening meal too. It is the only place in Ashford that offers this style of cooking and is a must for anyone looking for an authentic Indian-dining experience.
Customers can park for free in the Edinburgh Road car park when visiting Bombay Street for an evening meal after 3pm or for Sunday buffet, all day long.
We can’t wait to see what the future holds for Bombay Street.
