The Lungi Babas is a new vibrant cafe and children’s space with a laid back, family friendly vibe. Open every Wednesday-Saturday between 12-5pm (also evenings with advance bookings) the café is a place for people and community groups to relax, mingle, eat together, socialise in a family friendly environment and hold events. Most days they will offer up a colourful plate of taste bud-popping, perfectly balanced, South Indian thali.

Owner, Mahesh Sharma is the man behind the food. He said, “I am a man on a mission to help people to eat affordable, healthy, tasty, ethically produced food.

“I have always been passionate about food. Being of South Indian heritage, food is very important to my culture, all of our important rituals and everyday traditions are based around food in some way. If you take a little time to learn how, food can be nourishment, medicine, and pleasure all on one plate.”

The Westway will be hosting the pop up cafe over the next three months. The dates are; Friday 23rd October, Friday 20th November and Friday 18th December and all for two weeks at a time.
