About Us

Since 2000

Two Fat Indians was started in the year 2000 right here in Christchurch on Manchester Street. We proudly served authentic Indian cuisine matched with cold pints of beer and ended up creating an array of raving fans for “two fats.” Our scrumptious Indian feasts were enjoyed by people from all over Aotearoa. The party carried on for 11 memorable years till February 2011 earthquake stuck.

Like lots of beloved Canterburians, Two Fat Indians took a massive hit. We lost access to our site and the business was shut. Our fans did not stop sending us mails, messages and phone calls asking us to reopen.

In the meantime, Ronnie Bhogal went to Food Design Institute and got a degree in Culinary Arts and updated his knowledge on food trends and ways of creating memorable dining experiences.

Nasir Khan, the head chef worked with top chefs and outlets in Christchurch and further sharpened his culinary saw. On the other hand Prasenjit Paul brings years of customer service experience with him and contributes towards delivering the new concept we have developed.

We are now extremely humbled showcasing the glory of Indian food through your favourite Two Fat Indians at a brand new site in Christchurch city centre. This concept is about celebrating the most authentic street food available in different parts of busy bazaars in India. Don’t worry, we would still be serving some sizzling curries and crispy naans that people have come to associate with Two Fat Indians!

As usual, an absolutely amazing dining experience is guaranteed. Come on and celebrate with us.
