Harris has now opened Namak on Mina Road in St Werburgh’s, on the site previously occupied by The Cauldron, which closed at the end of 2021.

The menu includes traditional curries such as beef madras and chicken korma with tandoor dishes like tandoori lamb tikka with black pepper, honey and ground spices, and maki tikka (tandoori salmon marinated in mustard and garlic). ‘dill).

“St Werburgh’s is such a wonderful area, with a great community, and we feel very lucky to be able to be a part of it.”
