A tasty selection of Indian snacks, savouries, chutneys and desserts are also being served alongside a wide range of hot and cold drinks.

Catering for everyone, Namaste Stroud also offers vegan and gluten free meals, snacks and daily freshly made pakoras. 

Owner, Jay Naidu, moved to Stroud five years ago and has been a resident of Five Valleys for over four years, living in the centre’s residential apartments. Jay is also a proud owner of Indian grocery shop, Gateway to India, on Russell Street and has now expanded his offering into Five Valleys.

Jay said: “We identified Five Valleys shopping centre as a great opportunity, due to its location, variety of food options and it being an innovative upmarket shopping centre.

“As Stroud has a diverse culture of people our aim is to cater to everyone needs and budgets. We are excited to bring a different cuisine to the indoor market and to serve the lovely people of Stroud.”

Namaste Stroud supports the local community by purchasing its produce from local suppliers as well as offering a delivery and catering service. 

Jack Simpson, Centre Manager at Five Valleys, said: “We are very excited to welcome Jay to the market and it is great to see our indoor market grow with our expanding food offer.”

Namaste Stroud will be joining Five Valleys’ great line up of street food traders including Kyuri Sushi, La Cantina, House of Piri, Thai 2 Go, Breaking The Habit, The BBQ Society, Non-Solo Pasta and The Noodle Bar. 

Keep an eye out for more announcements as the food offering is set to expand further with a Chinese street food vendor joining next month.
