A Teste of History

In 1580, sailor Sir Francis Drake circumnavigated the earth in search of something rather precious. His expeditions paid him handsomely. For, he did not just return with sterling silver and glittering gems, but sacks full of exotic spices. A ‘treasure’ so valuable that it helped pay the entire national debt and in return Queen Elizabeth knighted Drake.

The New 1580

The new 1580 is the passionate result of father & son duo, Ram Adhikari and Prajowl Adhikari, have for the flavours and cuisine of Nepal and North India, perfectly paired with warm and charismatic Nepali hospitality

Executive Chef Ram and his kitchen team will transport you on a culinary journey through Himalays of Nepal, the plains of Terai to the farm lands of Punjab. Whereas Host Praj will be found ensuring that every table is looked after to perfection. With a fantastic Mixology programme you can expect to find a tripple to quench your thirst. Make sure to ask for the house favourites.
