Nakama is the creation of two of Nottingham’s award-winning chefs, Paul Thacker (from Asian fusion restaurant, Chino Latino), and Hira Thakur (more recently of World Service).   Paul and Hira have a passion for food, taking their inspiration from Japan, India and the amazing flavours of pan-Asian cuisine.

Their journey as a partnership started in March this year, with a takeover of the Playhouse Restaurant in Nottingham.  It was such a huge success that they have continued to roll out the concept at different locations around the city and have hosted 5 events so far this year, all have been completely sold out! 

Details of their forthcoming Pop-Ups are below..

A Vegan night at The Angel Micro Brewery, Nottingham, Thursday 13th September.  You’ll need to be quick though as it’s almost sold out!  They hope to run this event on a monthly basis, so if you miss out this time around, keep an eye out…

Adams Restaurant, Nottingham College, Thursday 20th September.  Run by Nottingham College, the bookings are being taken by them.  Nakama will work with the students giving them an opportunity to learn about their cuisine.. the cooking and presentation of it, etc.
