Top independent Indian restaurant chain secures financial backing to open fourth venture in Reading

Jamshed Miah’s Indian restaurant enterprise has opened a fourth restaurant in Berkshire after securing financial backing from NatWest.

Miah’s Saffron in Reading’s Whitley Street joins the well-established restaurant chain alongside Miah’s in Spencers Wood, Miah’s in Pangbourne and British Curry Awards top 100 restaurant placement Miah’s Garden of Gulab in Reading.


The restaurant is situated on the site of the former Saffron Tandoori after NatWest provided financial backing for a refurbishment and rebranding to bring it in line with Miah’s distinctive style.


Jamshed Miah, owner and managing director of Miah’s, said: “I am delighted with the launch of our latest restaurant, it looks great and the opening was a real success. I look forward to welcoming new and existing Miah’s customers to Miah’s Saffron.”


Having opened his first restaurant in 1982 at the age of 16, Miah’s combination of popular classic dishes and contemporary foods has made the enterprise the leading independent Indian restaurant chain in the Reading area.
