Situated at the heart of the West Midlands, the owners of the new restaurant are behind the highly successful and pioneering outdoor catering business. Nationwide, the Five Rivers group has established a reputation for delivering a personable, innovative touch to any event with their distinctive North Indian cuisine.
The success of Five Rivers is demonstrated by their partnership with several well known venues around the UK including The Belfry in Sutton Coldfield and The National Motorcycle Museum in Coventry. Branching out into the community, Five Rivers have recently sponsored a stand at Walsall Football Club.
The team behind this award-winning operation Kindi Sunner and Shamim HM are relishing the prospect of expanding this thriving business.
MD Kindi Sunner says, “We have taken the mighty leap into the restaurant business. Our reputation in the outdoor catering trade business, twinned with our ambitions to expand the Five Rivers group, has meant that we were able to turn our dream of a restaurant into reality with Five Rivers a la Carte”.
“This venture will distinguish the Five Rivers group from our competitors, as our business will not only incorporate outdoor catering but a fine dining establishment”.
Central to Five Rivers is Executive Chef Rashpal Sunner, who after perfecting his culinary skill in India, revolutionized how Asian cuisine was delivered at large scale events and celebrations. From satisfying wedding couples to impressing judges to win the ‘Ethnic Chef of the Year’, Chef Sunner has exceeded his own expectations.
“After coming to the UK and starting the Five Rivers brand, the group has continued to develop beyond my expectations. The thread tying our business together is experimentation with food, but not compromising on the quality or service”.
“I wanted to bring something new and fresh to the Asian catering scene and we have continued to pioneer in this industry”.
Five Rivers has developed an identity that encapsulates their roots back to the Punjab, a state in North India. Translating into English as ‘Five Rivers’, the Punjab has not only provided the influence for the group’s menu but also the principles behind their highly successful business.
“Punjab is where I come from and influences the day to day at Five Rivers. The richness of this area in India provides us with not only the flavours for our dishes but also with a heritage that is based on hard work and always delivering the best”.
At the end of the year, the restaurant will open it’s doors on December 10th open for diners seeking something new in Asian fine dining, but all eyes are on the start of 2012, when the official launch will see specially invited guests to a restaurant launch like no other!
