The newly opened New Yaal No. 1 Restaurant is one of Southend-on-Sea’s freshest and most unique Asian dining offerings. The dedicated chefs serve an impressive array of authentic Sri Lankan and Indian dishes using traditional cooking methods, using herbs, spices and coconut milk native to South Asia to enrichen the dishes further.
The cosy and welcoming restaurant provides the perfect escape from real life, whether it be for an intimate date, or a gathering with friends or family to celebrate something special. The team behind New Yaal No.1 are passionate about giving diners a true taste of Sri Lanka, especially to those who have never tried it before. If you’re a fan of Indian, you’re bound to love the dishes that New Yaal prepare. From their simple yet ever-so flavoursome daals, loaded with spices, ginger and garlic, to more complex meat, prawn and vegetable curry offerings, there’s bound to be something to tickle everyone’s fancy. Being a relatively small island, Sri Lanka’s speciality is prawns and fish, and New Yaal’s selection of seafood is some of the freshest locally source produce you’ll find.
There’s also a handful of Indian options available such as Balti, Kormas and Tikkas, as well as very traditional Sri Lankan snacks available, such as the delicious string hoppers, perfect for drenching in your choice of curry. Curious? Order them and see!
Located near the centre of Southend-on-Sea, and just a few minutes’ walk from Southend Victoria railway station, the New Yaal restaurant beckons those craving some mid-week spice to come inside. With the combination of fragrant food, outstandingly friendly service, ambient mood lighting, and traditional touches to the décor such as Sri Lankan decorations and elephants, you’re bound to be transported to the exotic shores of this island in the Indian Ocean.
