Indian restaurant and takeaway group Bombay Bicycle is to open eight new sites - one of them a restaurant - in London by the beginning of March.

 

A 90-cover restaurant and takeaway, serving the company's same 'home-style' Indian menu as its existing sites, will open in Chelsea in less than six weeks.

 

Bombay Bicycle will also add takeaways, which it calls delivery kitchens, to its three existing restaurants in Balham, Holland Park and Hampstead.

 

The remaining four sites will operate as takeaways and will open in Crystal Palace, Kennington, Streatham Hill and St Paul's.

 

Maurice Abboudi, operations director for Bombay Bicycle said, “Bombay Bicycle is a tremendously strong brand name, whose focus has always our customers. We have always had great feedback from them particularly as our food is traditional with just the right hint of modernity about it and prepared with love and care."

 

Bombay Bicycle, which currently operates 15 delivery kitchens in London, was bought by Gourmet Restaurants from Clapham House Group for £4.4m in July 2008 before being taken over by V8 Gourmet in January 2009.

 

V8 Gourmet, also owner of Tiffinbites and Vama, said despite the 'harsh economic conditions' it had experienced 'a tremendously successful year' which meant it could focus on expanding the Bombay Bicycle brand.
