West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.

Nutan strongly believes “you are what you eat” its run single-handedly by one woman so your food quality is assured. We serve home cooked North Indian style of food we serve with simplicity, laughter, and love. . Bear in mind it's a casual dining place our portioned are designed for one person so it's not like any other Indian restaurant , we believe in quality and not in quantity
