Ursula Nulliah, who set up a home based catering business 15 months ago in Shaw, has now taken the next step in pursuing her dream by opening her own cafe and takeaway with emphasis on dishes based on family recipes from her childhood.
Dishes at her East West cafe situated at 9 Moredon Road have strong Indian influences but with a unique flavour – what Ursula describes as her ‘South African twist.’
She said: “I had been thinking about opening my own place for quite a few months since starting my catering business. I saw these premises just before Easter and made the decision immediately after viewing.
“I’ve loved cooking since an early age, especially for large family groups. People have always said I should open a cafe, so here I am.”
East West cafe has 16 seats for eat-in customers offering a full English breakfast , a variety of fresh salads,open sandwiches,wraps and curries.
Opening hours are Monday to Thursday 10am to 7pm; Friday and Saturday 10am to 10pm.
Call 01793 538080 to pre-order your meal and home deliveries will be starting in the near future.
Eat-in customers can bring their own alcoholic refreshments and enjoy a lovely meal.
East West is proving a hit with the South African community in Swindon which numbers about 1,000 residents. It’s certainly worth visiting to discover Ursula’s mouth watering dishes.
