A much-anticipated Indian street food-style vendor has opened its doors.

Curry Box welcomed customers at Castle Social food court for the first time on Friday morning, offering a wide range of "mouth-watering curries and biriyani boxes". 

The new vendor joins vegan outlet Hank's Dirty, Italian street food company Mamma Mia, Street Food Box's dirty burgers and loaded fries and cocktail bar Pinker and Green at the shopping centre's food hub.

Curry Box is located on level three of Castle Quarter and is open all day until 11pm. 

Currybox is the brainchild of owner and managing director Amran Hussen who has experience managing Indian restaurants and takeaways previously.

The 31-year-old previously said: "I cannot wait to open and be a part of this vibrant venue, bringing people together and offering food from across the world."

Venue manager at Castle Social, Tiffany Bond, said: "We are delighted Curry Box will be opening and it will only strengthen Castle Social amid our unflinching commitment that visitors will enjoy a genuine food, leisure and entertainment venue."
