The inspiration for Bombay Central is taken from in and around the main station of India. The brief for Dawnvale was to design and recreate the hustle bustle culture and lifestyle of the main station and to combine this with an infusion of contemporary Indian cuisine.
Previously named The Old Wealdstone Inn, this was stripped back to exposed brickwork. The bricks were treated and sealed to create an authentic look that emphasised the natural character of the building. The internal decor features cracked leather fixed seating with handcrafted slat work and bespoke industrial metal trellis work. Genuine Indian treasures were imported from India to recreate the essence of India.
A centrepiece of the restaurant is the marble island bar with bespoke glass racks.
The kitchen design incorporates the latest energy saving technology which includes a K E R S heat recovery system which converts wasted kitchen energy into hot water together with bespoke low energy induction woks reducing carbons and offering considerable energy savings.
