About Us

Punjabi Junction is apart of Sikh Sanjog as its Social Enterprise Community Café. Formally known as Punjab'n De Rasoi, the great success of it over the last three and half years led to a relaunch as Punjabi Junction; where you can take a step back in time as we have recreated the atmosphere of an old Indian train and it's stations.

Punjabi junction offers a blend of traditional Punjabi, home cooked cuisines mixed with inspiring social enterprise giving opportunities, social inclusion and support to women from the capital’s minority Ethnic background.

The café also offers cookery classes, outside catering and of course a fantastic experience of dishes packed with spice and the atmosphere is friendly, full of laughter and warm.

Working in the café gives the women in our community the opportunity to build vital job skills and build their confidence.

Trishna Singh who runs Sikh Sanjog says the café is at the heart of their organisation:

“We have done well so far, we have had celebrities like Madhur Jaffery and Paul Hollywood in the café filming for their respected cookery shows. The café is an important part of the work we do within Sikh Sanjog.”

The café, Punjab'n de Rasoi, opened in March 2010 to provide Minority Ethnic (ME) women with training and employment opportunities, develop confidence and reduce social exclusion and promote and sustain the Sikh culture in Edinburgh. The café is a social enterprise that uses any profit to support the charity’s core activities.

Punjabi Junction; where the dishes are traditional, homemade yet simple.
