Opening of an Indian restaurant and cocktail bar at Derby’s Pride Park


A new Indian restaurant and cocktail bar has opened at Derby’s Pride Park.

Nicco opened at the site of the former Chiquito site at Wheelwright Way following a massive renovation worth around half a million pounds.

The site, which welcomed its first customers at the end of last month on Tuesday, October 26, is owned by Sanj Kumar, managing director of neighboring NK Motors.

Named after Mr. Kumar’s son, the restaurant offers Indian cuisine with a twist and serves mixed grill dishes, street food, curries and tapas to share.

After the opening, a spokesperson for the restaurant posted on Facebook to state: “The inspiration for Nicco Restaurant & Bar came from the desire to create a dining experience beyond, with the vision to bring something of new to Derby!

“Think of Indian cuisine with a modern twist, serving mixed grill dishes and tapas sharing platters. Dishes consisting of light and smaller portions, where customers will have the chance to try a variety of dishes.

“Nicco’s will provide an escape from the everyday restaurant chain, and as you can see the building has undergone huge renovations, from scratch, including the installation of a state-of-the-art sound system. of technology. “

This is Mr. Kumar’s first investment in a solo dining room after becoming part-owner of the Lotus Indian Kitchen in Willington’s Mercia Marina several years ago.

He brought the property back from Pride Park last year after seeing it for sale on his way back from NK Motors.

The Chiquito restaurant on Pride Park closed last year after the chain began operations in March 2020.

The Nicco restaurant and bar is open seven days a week from noon to 11 p.m. daily.
