A BRUNCH cafe with a twist is celebrating its tasty success after opening its doors during the pandemic.

Nashtaa, on London Road, Langley, serving Indian-fusion breakfast, opened in June and has since seen a “good response” from customers.

Owner and mum-of-three Juslena Randhawa, who’s always had a passion for cooking, wanted to create a place for mums to relax around school pick up times.

She described her new business has been a “massive learning curve”.

“Owning a business has definitely made me a lot stronger as a person and I really want to show mums that they can achieve anything,” Mrs Randhawa said.

Her homemade recipes incorporate Indian spices in regular English breakfast dishes, which is something Mrs Randhawa said makes her café so unique.

“There is nothing else like this in Slough and the surrounding area and I really wanted mums to feel like they can come here and enjoy a morning with friends or their children,” she said.

“People have been so encouraging since I opened and it’s amazing to have received all the support and feedback we’ve had.”

With an original opening date of December last year, Nashtaa was finally unveiled to the public, despite some initial teething problems.

And with the Omicron variant worsening, Mrs Randhawa said she's prepared to turn to takeaways to keep the business running.

"We've got the customer base now, they love that we serve breakfast with a twist and I would want them all to still have that access to our food even if we have to go into another lockdown," she said.

Mrs Randhawa offered her inspiring advice to other women on how they can achieve their goals.

“If I can say one thing to any mums or women out there it’s follow your dreams,” she added.

“I had all of these ideas on a vision board at home almost two years ago and it goes to show what you can do if you just believe in yourself.

“I didn’t expect the business to do as well as it had l but it feels great to have achieved so much in just six months.”

Mrs Randhawa explained having a large following online has also helped give her a confidence boost.

“I have so many women come in who have read my story online and they say how much I’ve inspired them and that really makes me feel so proud,” she said.

Mrs Randhawa hopes to open more Nashtaa branches in the near future.
