PILAU - Fresh Indian Street Food

our journey...

First opened in 2015, PILAU has quickly earned a reputation for quality and service that is now the hallmark of our brand. PILAU has always sought to dispel inaccurate myths surrounding Indian food and break down barriers preventing customers from enjoying Indian cooking. Press feedback across multiple forms of media has been glowing with a full double page spread in the Evening Standard.

By combining our love for Indian culture and knowledge of London’s restaurant scene, we have created the ultimate fast-casual dining experience. Offering fresh, authentic, good-quality Indian food in an accessible and contemporary format.

Putting smiles on faces from London to india ...

Founded in 2016, the FEED YOURSELF - FEED a CHILD project is simple:

Every time someone eats at a PILAU restaurant in London, we donate a mid-morning meal to a child in India. We do this through our partnership with the incredible Akshaya Patra, who feed 1.8 million children everyday and help fulfil these children's dreams though a nourishing meal giving them the best possible chance in life.

PILAU has already fed thousands of meals to children and we're only just getting started! Everyone at PILAU believes we've been put on this earth to make a difference.

We're on a mission to feed 1 billion children and we wont stop until we achieve it!
