In India, street food is a way of life. It is enjoyed by everyone and ranges from breakfast items such as omelettes to snacks such as samosas and pani puri as well as more substantial items such as sandwiches, wraps and burgers. We wanted to deliver this food, which is currently missing from the London food scene, in a unique and exciting way ... the true feeling of eating on the go in India. Horn Ok Please represents all that is colourful, inviting and joyful about eating on the go.

Jamaica Patty Co.

Jamaica Patty Co. was founded in 2013 with the aim of bringing high-quality Jamaican food to the UK.

To ensure authenticity all recipes have been developed by renowned Jamaican chef Collin Brown and Theresa; Collin insists that every single Patty is freshly baked in store just like they are in Jamaica.
