One of Newcastle’s best known and most loved restaurants has launched a new strand to the business.
Sachins, based on Forth Banks, has been serving traditional Punjabi cuisine for 30 years.
Now, the establishment is launching a range of ready meals through a partnership with the Fenwick department store.
To begin with, the new range will feature butter chicken, chicken jalfrezi and daal lentils, all of which have proved popular at the restaurant. In longer-term, more products may be added.
The move comes after the success of the Sachins @ home initiative, which sees Sachins chefs cater for events such as birthday parties and weddings.
Part-owner Neeta Arora said of the Fenwick partnership: “It was never something we thought about when we first took over the restaurant. As we have grown, and with the success of the Sachins @ home service for private events, we felt like this was the next step in our natural progression.”
