‘Taste of Punjab’ is the new name for the recently re-opened takeaway at 186 Barnsley Road, providing curries along with pizzas, kebabs, fried chicken and burger meals.
Mr Urfan, owner of the block of shop units for the last 7 years, decided to re-open and run the takeaway service himself. A resident of Burngreave for 37 years, his aim is to provide good quality food at reasonable prices, and has brought in expertise from elsewhere by investing in a reputable chef and qualified staff with previous experience.
“All our food is prepared fresh daily,” says Mr Urfan. “Rather than prepare food a few days in advance, we prepare less but on a daily basis.”
“We're here to provide a service and to give something to the community. During these difficult times, people can't afford to spend a lot on food, so we work with a low profit margin to provide meals at affordable prices.”
Barnsley Road Café
Mr Urfan will also soon be re-opening the Barnsley Road café a few units down from the takeaway. Open throughout the day for breakfast and lunch, the café will provide English food alongside curries. “People can come in, buy some toast and a cup of tea, and we'll even give them a free top-up!”
The café will open throughout the day until early evening. When the café closes, the Taste of Punjab takeaway opens for the evening until late-night, so there is always the opportunity to enjoy a good meal any time of day!
