Rola Wala to open first permanent London site

Street Feast resident Rola Wala will open its debut London site in Spitalfields in July.

The restaurant will offer a menu of healthy everyday Indian fast food, including handmade sourdough naan rolls and seasonal grain bowls.

Meaning ‘man that rolls’ in Hindi, Rola Wala’s menu is inspired by founder Mark Wright’s travels around India, including the Bombay beaches, Kolkata street markets and Keralan waterways.

Guests order by choosing either a rolled sourdough naan, khicheree masala black bean noodles and charred broccoli, or cauliflower rice and kale, before adding one of the Twisted Indian fillings and chutney. Guests can also choose their preferred spice level.

Every naan roll sold will give a child living in poverty a free school meal, through Rola Wala’s partnership with One Feeds Two.

To stay refreshed, Rola Wala will offer soft drinks, including its own brand of mango, lime and turmeric sodas made in collaboration with Square Root in Hackney, as well as craft beer and wine.

Of the design, notable features will include timber cladding, pendant lighting, scaffold polls and metal shelving stocked with spice jars. Two rows of high metal stools will provide seating.
