Thursday, July 7, 2022
Opening Hours: 
Doors at 7pm, food begins at 7.30pm
Nunnery Cafe, 181 Bow Road, London E3 2SJ

Join us for our first supper club of the year as Nepalese cooking duo Shaurab and Gaurab Thakali take over the Nunnery Café with a home-cooked feast taking cues from the food they grew up eating, lovingly made by their grandma, mum, and aunties.  

More details on the menu to be released soon. However, it will be a three-course affair, featuring a tasty mix of achaar for starters, followed by a traditional thali with all the fixings for mains, and a special dessert to bring the evening to a delicious close. 

15% of ticket proceeds will be donated to Maiti Nepal - a non-profit organisation in Nepal dedicated to supporting victims of human trafficking. 

This is also a chance to view ME 2 U: A collective manifesto after hours as part of Whitechapel Gallery’s First Thursdays, with the Nunnery Café serving drinks throughout the evening. 

We will follow up by email to ask for info about any dietary requirements and/or allergies after you have purchased your tickets. 


Tickets £22/£15 (concession rate applies to Bow Arts artists, students, over 65s, under 18s, National Art Pass members, and key workers)
