My Delhi launches Leicester restaurant following success of North East venues26/10/2023
A multi award-winning restaurant has expanded into the East Midlands as it opens its first venue outside of the North East, thanks to support from Newcastle-based law firm Mincoffs Solicitors.
My Delhi opened its doors at Leicester’s Belvoir Street earlier this month, marking the launch of the brand’s third restaurant following the success of its Newcastle and Sunderland sites.
Founded by brothers Elahi and Shah Amin, business partners Gaurav and Neha Goyal and executive chef Gaurav Dayal in 2019, My Delhi became an instant hit with locals, along with winning praise from the wider hospitality scene.
Earlier this year the team brought home the title of Best Street Food Restaurant of the Year at the National Curry Awards and Best Takeaway in the North East at the Just Eat Restaurant Awards among other accolades, including being crowned the winners of BBC’s Britain’s Top Takeaways last year.
Co-founder, Elahi Amin, is delighted with the response to the Leicester restaurant.
“Following the successful launch of our venues in Newcastle and Sunderland, we are now in the process of delivering the next phase of growth that will see us open sites in a number of UK cities, with Leicester being the first outside of the North East,” he said.
“While we have ambitious plans to expand across the country, our focus is on providing the highest quality Indian food and therefore our growth strategy remains controlled and focussed.
“Keith and the rest of the team at Mincoffs have contributed to this with invaluable advice and guidance and we look forward to working with them going forward as we roll out the My Delhi concept further afield.”
Keith Ravenhill, associate solicitor in Mincoffs Solicitors’ real estate team, advised on the lease of the new space which was formerly operated by Zizzi, as part of the firm’s ongoing work with the Indian street food brand.
“Mincoffs prides itself on assisting up and coming businesses, particularly from the local region. Whilst we have assisted Elahi and Shah for a little while now, it was our pleasure to play a part in the next stage of the business as it expands outside of the North East,” said Keith.
“My Delhi’s authentic Indian street food has quickly become a staple of the North East food scene and I am confident the Leicester restaurant will prove to be just as popular with diners.
“We look forward to working closely together again in the future as we continue to support the team with their growth strategy going forward.”
Mincoffs Solicitors has provided expert legal services and advice across the North East and beyond for 75 years.
