The perfect dining experience by the sea

Our good friend Kumar Menon founded Leela’s kitchen in 2011 in memory of his late grandmother Leela. She and his mother are the inspiration behind his passion for Indian cooking and spices. This culinary journey has continued with his daughter, also Leela, passionately carrying on the family tradition and working alongside Kumar.  

Kumar wanted to offer healthy Indian cookery workshops, and this has also lead to the creation of  his award winning spices and mixes, which are inspired by family recipes. These spices are GM free, freshly ground and hand-packed in the Isle of Man, which goes hand in hand with our passion to support local businesses.
