The term Punjab comprises two words: “punj” meaning five and “ab” meaning water, thus the land of five rivers. We have named this establishment Five Rivers, due to this being the owner’s birth place.Punjab is known for its fl ourishing agriculture. Historically it is the birth place of the ten gurus, great maharajas including Maharaja Ranjit Singh, and martyrs such as Bhagat Singh and Udham Singh.
We have also paid tribute to the last prince of Punjab, Dalip Singh, who during his lifetime was a key link between Indo-British history. Five Rivers is pleased to bring you a new way of experiencing Indian food that is very tasty, clean and healthy, yet very authentic. Ideally suited to our contemporary palates, our cooking combines the exotic fl avours and respect for fi ne ingredients: fresh produce and herbs, delicate spices and home made dairy products that have attracted generations of food lovers in all cultures throughout history.
The inspiration behind Five Rivers is to bring something new, fresh and vibrant onto the British Indian dining scene. In order to achieve this revolution, we went back to the roots of Indian cuisine; studying all aspects of Indian food from the different regions of India. In order to be able to produce this truly authentic Indian food we only recruit our team of chefs for our restaurants from the fi nest restaurants and hotels in India.
Our chefs from India discovered that the British public had not even touched or tasted the excitement and the fl avours that the Indian sub-continent holds. Indian cooking is about theatre, professional chefs showing off their skills in front of an admiring audience, using equipment and cooking utensils especially developed over the centuries to enhance the flavours of the food.
We now welcome you to the next step in a truly exhilarating experience, which until now could only be experienced if you travelled all around the great culinary cities of India.
