Gunwharf Quays has announced that two restaurants will join its food and beverage line-up. Award-winning independent gastropub, Tap & Tandoor, is set to open this week, and authentic American-style restaurant Slim Chickens will be opening its doors at midday on Friday 26th January.
Tap & Tandoor will be Gunwharf Quays’ only Indian restaurant, combining a unique mix of traditional Indian flavours with modern craft beer, cocktails and live sports. The restaurant will offer a variety of small plates, home-style curries including Butter Chicken and Tarka Daal as well as a range of mixed grills, vegetarian and vegan options too.
Gunwharf Quays will be the brand’s fourth location and offers a casual dining experience with guests able to watch a variety of sports in a relaxed, family friendly atmosphere. The new location also boasts a large outdoor terrace with stunning views of the harbour.
Arkansas-born fried chicken restaurant, Slim Chickens, specialises in fresh, homemade Southern-inspired dishes and will open its 50th restaurant at the Portsmouth-based outlet this week. The brand boasts a vast menu including hand-breaded buttermilk chicken tenders, Honey BBQ sandwiches and fresh Buffalo wings. It also stocks a range of 15 handmade dipping sauces as well as a variety wraps, salads and sides, plus vegetarian plant-based options.
