The story of PADHARO begins with two friends who shared a common dream – to introduce the richness of Indian vegetarian cuisine to the UK. Hailing from India, they brought with them a treasure trove of family recipes and culinary traditions, each passed down through generations. Their journey led them to Southampton, where they found the perfect canvas to paint the flavours of India on plates and hearts. Together, they set out on a mission to weave a tapestry of taste, celebrating the vibrant world of Indian vegetarian and vegan delights.

At PADHARO, we take pride in serving authentic Indian vegetarian and vegan food that reflects the true essence of our homeland. Each dish is crafted with love and attention to detail, ensuring an explosion of flavours that transport you to the bustling streets and aromatic markets of India. Our commitment to authenticity shines through every dish we present, and we believe that the heart and soul we infuse into our food make the dining experience truly special.

Our experienced chef at PADHARO is the heart and soul of our culinary journey. With a wealth of expertise and a passion for authentic flavours, our chef brings a touch of India to every dish. Having honed their skills in renowned kitchens across India, they have a deep understanding of traditional techniques and regional spices, ensuring that each creation is a masterpiece of taste and texture.

Our mission goes beyond merely serving delicious food; it’s about nurturing a movement towards vegetarianism and veganism. We are dedicated to promoting a healthier and sustainable lifestyle, one that respects the environment and all living beings. Through our delectable creations, we hope to inspire both locals and visitors to embrace the joy of plant-based dining. Our vision is to be a catalyst for positive change, creating a community that cherishes the planet and its inhabitants, one delectable bite at a time. As we embark on this culinary adventure, we invite you to join us in celebrating the harmony of flavours, love for the planet, and compassion for all beings.
