We are very excited to hold a pop-up kitchen event at The Thunderbolt with Gopal’s Curry Shack. 

They are developing a fantastic reputation for  fresh, aromatic and vibrant Indian street food with a modern twist.  All of their food is vegetarian and the majority is vegan and gluten free.

They have already received the following accolades:

Waitrose Weekend magazine 'Top 10 British Street Eats' - October 16th 2014


British Street Food Awards South West & Wales Finalists - Second Place May 2014


Best For Vegetarian British Street Food - Top Santé Magazine - October 2014

Thunderbolt customers may have met Mel and Heather of Gopal’s at various places around South Bristol, particularly The Paintworks, The Tobacco Factory and “Arts in the Park” in  Redcatch Park in September.

Gopal’s Curry Shack uses seasonal, local and ethical produce to create fresh and tasty dishes and strive to use recycled materials wherever possible and practicable.
