NADu's story

Introducing the latest venture from the team behind the award winning Indian restaurant Nutmeg, Nadu. Nadu brings a slice of Sri Lanka to the epicentre of Bristol’s cultural quarter, Stokes Croft. 


Bringing a fresh perspective to the heritage of our owners Raja and Saravanan, offering you traditional Tamil cuisine with a modern twist and a menu of innovative cocktails and expertly selected rums all served in a vibrant atmosphere in the epicentre of Stokes Croft. 



& Drink

Nadu showcases honest food full of exotic flavours, using local produce and traditional Tamil techniques from our head chef and co-owner Saravanan Nambirajan. The cuisine traditionally uses the fruits of the land (Nadu translates to land); from the staple vegetarian dishes to fresh fish and expertly cooked meat dishes. Tamil food is based on the concept that food shapes the personality, mood, and mind; something we firmly believe and aim to reflect in our menus. 


We’ve paired our food with a range of unique cocktails and authentic drinks, all served up with our much-loved brand of casual, vibrant atmosphere. Take a look at our menus below.
