After having tasted success in Cardiff with his first venture, Chef Santhosh has decided to cross the Severn and open a new venue in Bristol. In the subtle surroundings of Henleaze just off Westbury on Trym and just off the Clifton Downs ; Salkaara has now started in the building annexe to Waitrose supermarket.

As we overcome this difficult period of Covid 19, we have decided to bring some joy and start off with takeaway and home delivery.

Keeping in line with the Cardiff restaurant, we provide a casual and relaxed atmosphere along with a vibrancy of a different combination of flavours.

Salkaara – derived from the word Salkaram in Malayalam which means hosting a guests or a feast or even just a hearty welcome. In line with its meaning , we at Salkaara have great pleasure in serving each and every one of our guests. At Salkaara we aim to take you on a gastronomical journey of various Indian flavours and Chef Santhosh’s mastery over the combination of such flavours. Hailing from Kerala – Chef Santhosh’s menu does lean towards Keralan or if not South Indian cuisine but we do have a variety of dishes from other parts of India combining them with the best of British produce wherever possible


Each and every dish is freshly prepared to have its own distinct combination of flavours such that no two dishes are similar and we aim to create seasonal changes to the menu to match with supplies available, weather , festive and Indian traditions. We always tend to use some of the best suppliers locally in sourcing our meat , fish and poultry . We also tend to mix and powder some of our spices to achieve the unique Salkaara taste.
