Showcasing the breadth of Indian cooking, the menu will be divided into two sections, with ‘Sepoy’ reflecting Chef Nirmal’s modern interpretation of the rustic, provincial style-food associated with the soldiers of the Indian army who would cook whilst on the move.
The Gul menu, on the other hand will echo the age-old banquets of the Raj palaces in North-Western India with lavish flavours.
“Commercial Street feels like home, we’ve been so warmly welcomed over the last few years with Gunpowder and Madame D’s and we’re very much looking forward to embarking on our next adventure with the friends we’ve met so far,” says Harneet.
“There’s something really romantic and beautiful about the cooking of the Raj-days of old and we’ve found that those flavours and dishes harmonise particularly well with the more rustic cooking you’d commonly find in historic tales of Sepoys (soldiers) travelling through colonial India.”
Sitting over two floors, Gul and Sepoy will be showered in natural light, with a large oak paneled bar greeting guests upon arrival. With a paired back aesthetic throughout, the upstairs dining room will denote a touch of luxury, in a nod to the decadence of North India’s ancient royal palaces, including intricate wooden features and large marble feasting tables.
